If you are from America, you already know what salt water taffy is and this Premier x Saucony Grid 9000 “Street Sweets” silhouette collaboration makes perfect sense from the name for its colorway. For those that don’t know what salt water taffy is it’s a sugar and cornstarch based candy flavored with various fruit flavors and typically comes out in vary pastel looking colors. Don’t worry it doesn’t actually contain salt water.
Using a combination light blue, cool grey, crème orange, and white leather and suede this colorway looks like a box of salt water taffy you would get at a fair. The lining even has a candy wrapper design and includes extras like another set of laces and a small tin of taffy. Aside from the shoes looking incredible for using so many colors, the collaboration also comes with a line of apparel from Premier which ranges from graphic tees to coach jackets.
Is always refreshing to see a smaller brands challenging the established sneaker giants and diversifying the sneaker game with collaborations as sweet as this. Saucony, keep it up!
