Saucony’s mysterious GRID Azura 2000 is back this week. Once an archived prototype, the 20-year-old silhouette finally made its debut in 2019 with a helping hand fromNew York’s Bodega. Now, the retro runner is available in three more colorways for Spring 2021.

Originally designed in 1999, the GRID Azura 2000 was never actually released, remaining a mysterious object in the vault for almost 20 years, until the team at Bodega unearthed it last year. Constructed from lightweight mesh and jagged suede overlays, the Azura 2K was intended as an all-purpose running silhouette. Things changed back in 2019, when longtime Saucony partner Bodega dug up the Azura 2K from the brand’s archives, finally giving it a release a full 20 years after it disappeared. Now, the GRID Azura is an essential part of the Saucony Originals lineup, returning this month in three fresh colorways for the new year. First, a metallic silver makeup that mixes flat grey mesh with light-reflective overlays, a second pair in an off-white cream tone with accents in grey, and finally a solid navy blue construction with hints of white and grey to lighten the tone just a bit. 


Saucony has yet to announce an official release date for the latest batch of GRID Azura colorways, though they are expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks. Available in silver, tan, or navy blue, the new releases will be available from both Saucony and select retailers, with the usual price tag of $110.
