A Fusion of Style and Purpose: The Bodega x Saucony Grid Shadow 2 ‘Jaunt Woven’

The Bodega x Saucony Grid Shadow 2 ‘Jaunt Woven’ epitomizes a fusion of style and purpose, blending stone-washed 18oz canvas, hemp, and cotton materials. The design ethos is inspired by aimless adventure, capturing the essence of free-spirited exploration. Earth tones and organic textures dominate the color scheme, with subtle pops of Acid Lime and Red Alert, catering to the aesthetic sensibilities of the new-age hippie.

Craftsmanship Meets Sustainability: Design Insights

Spearheaded by Saucony Senior Brand Marketing Manager Jason Faustino, the design journey of the Grid Shadow 2 ‘Jaunt Woven’ prioritized a connection to the earth using all-natural materials. The sneaker, primarily crafted from woven hemp, showcases intricate detailing with contrasting weaves. From the loose gauge weave on the toe and mid-foot to the cellular overlays and plain-woven tongue, each element contributes to the sneaker’s unique aesthetic appeal.

Embracing Environmental Responsibility: Sustainable Elements

Embracing environmental responsibility, Saucony and Bodega integrated sustainable design elements into the Grid Shadow 2 ‘Jaunt Woven.’ Notably, the sneaker features a molded EVA midsole cushioning with a speckled heel resembling ocean waves. Furthermore, a recycled gum rubber outsole, along with a recycled mesh tongue, collar liner, and brushed Nylex footbed cover, underscores the commitment to style and sustainability.

Matt Zaremba, Director of Marketing at Bodega, expressed excitement about the collaboration’s launch, emphasizing the brands’ shared history and creativity. The ‘Jaunt Woven’ represents a return to the essence of their partnership, rooted in earth-centric design and premium craftsmanship.
