The Saucony Grid SD ‘Ether’ is the second release from the brands Modern Range for SS17. The shoe comes in a flashy Rose Gold across the uppers which has a shiny finish and includes rope laces, hits of perforations, and Off-White through the midsole and outsole.
The simple yet premium tumbled black leather of the Jordan 1 BHM ditches the prints and patterns native to Jordan Brand’s usual Black History Month celebration. Instead, the Jumpman added removable and swappable velcro patches on the Wings branding, the Swoosh side panels, and the alternating tongue logos featuring traditional Jumpman logos and Nike’s ‘BHM’ crest. What results is a simple, refined look perfect for any occasion.
Facetasm–the brand by Japanese designer Hiromichi Ochiai, breaks with the high/low dichotomy by mix-matching street culture and luxury and putting a focus on gender fluid fashion with bold print and fabric associations in urban-chic looks, that were sublimated by traditional Japanese motifs.
Similar to other editions of the Pump Supreme, the Jacquard Tape bears the streamlined slip-on silhouette the sneaker is known for. This also includes the reengineered fit sleeve, a feature that brings the foot closer to the knit upper and maximizes the feel and function of the shoe’s namesake Pump technology. The unique twist to this rendition has to be the literal jacquard tape branding that runs along the center of upper as well as the back pull tab—a direct callback to 90’s tracksuits. This throwback nod is also embodied in the upper’s retro all-over mesh, which is different from the main model’s engineered mesh upper.
