Saucony Grid 9000 Wheat – We can all agree that the “wheat” color is no longer the sole possession of Timberland. Nike has done an amazing job with the utilitarian work color, and now Saucony joins the ranks with their Wheat version of the Grid 9000. The retro runner has a wide bulky silhouette that benefits from the muted color, and using a lighter hue allows the sneaker to retain a sport look. Pair it with a bit of white and here’s a clean and fresh runner perfect for shorts season.
