Saucony and White Mountaineering have reunited. For the first time since 2014, the two brands have unveiled a new collaboration, this time featuring a total of three new colorways across the GRID Web and Switchback ISO silhouettes.
White Mountaineering has been all about their footwear this year. Kicking off 2020 with a cozy collaboration with Ugg, the Japanese brand quickly followed up with the debut of several brand new in-line silhouettes just months after. Now, the outdoor-minded streetwear brand is teaming up with Saucony for their first large-scale collection, reuniting for the first time in six years after the two last worked on the GRID 9000 together. The latest collection from the two starts off with an eye-catching ripple effect across the upper of the Switchback ISO, a trail running shoe featuring a BOA locking system for easy access and a litany of White Mountaineering branding. The GRID Web takes a different approach, removing any trace of WM’s branding, instead opting for color schemes that fit perfectly into the brand’s FW20 collection. One pair comes in black with white web-like overlays, while the second features a white and tan base with blue, purple, pink, and orange tones mixed throughout.
