Take a deep breath of the 'Ether' and prepare for something special.
The latest limited edition pair to grace the shelves of Soleheaven, from heritage champions Saucony is known as the 'Ether'. Taking the form of, the 90's favourite, the GRID SD. Known as the silhouette chosen by Sneaker Freaker to launch the 'Kushwhacker', following up the iconic 'Bushwhacker' GRID 9000. Both of which have grown to become two of the most lusted after releases from the brand. In late 2017 we saw the GRID SD transformed for a seasonal release, the 'Pumpkin Spiced'. And now for the latest special release.
The Ether, a name which may confuse many, takes inspiration from the home of Saucony in the state of Massachusetts. Once internationally regarded as being one of the most medically advanced places in the whole world. Thanks to the groundbreaking research carried out in the operating theatre of the Massachusetts General Hospital. Build to serve as an operating theatre, but also as a traditional theatre in a sense, allowing scholars and the general public to watch of surgeons at work. Notably the first ever public demonstration of inhaled ether’s anaesthetic properties, changing the medical world forever. All of which taking place under the iconic rose gold dome which sits atop the theatre allowing the space to be filled with natural light during the display of these medical marvels.
It is the dome itself which Saucony have based the design of this GRID SD, built on a base of soft-touch leathers in striking tones of rose gold, this really is a pair which will have you standing out from the crowd. The marriage of both polished and matt metallics gives the silhouette it's recognisable panelling. Broken up with flashes of off white creams across the midsole, natural string laces & smooth suede tongue. Finished with a rose gold coin on the tongue showing a majestic Saucony 'S'.
