    Hadn't even hear of them til you mentioned them. They sound nice from the description, but they're mad expensive, and also 8Ks, which I'm not a fan of.

    I actually liked the Antiololi Inner 9Ks from a few months ago, but I think I'm the only one here who grabbed them.

    After my post went looking for more info. They still haven't released, will release next friday at up there. Worldwide soon after on the 23rd apparently.

    The price is 250 aud, not usd. Not sure if that's expensive by american standards, but at the current exchange rate that's about the usual price for saucony collabs here in europe.

    Yeah, it's about $200 usd. Collabs tend to be about $50 less than that.

    I'm a little confused with the sizing recommendations in this thread for the Grid 9000

    I tried on the 8500 in size 8 and they fit perfect. Do the 9000 fit the same?

    My size in shoes are between 8 - 8.5...

    Shoes in 8 - Flyknit Trainer, Vapormax, Air Max Plus, Gel Lyte V
    Shoes in 8.5 - Flyknit Racer, Ultraboost 1.0, Gel Lyte III

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Is your sz 8 your TTS or your 8.5?? Because if it’s your 8 go with that size.

    I think these and the other ones posted on their site are way cleaner tbh but I really do like the model as a whole

    Tempting but I would think these are bound for discount prices. I haven't tried them on yet but unless they are absurdly comfortable I'm not paying $150 for them.

    My foot measures at 8 and 1/4, that's why I have a lot of shoes in 8 and 8.5. I read a lot of mixed advice about staying TTS and going a half size down for the 9000, so I'm guessing I should go with the 8. I'm just hoping it fits the same as the 8500.

    Small footers can get the West NYC salt waters for $40 plus shipping direct from West NYC. Crazy good deal for a really dope shoe.

    Does anyone know of a site that has a good compendium/list/timeline/whatever of Sauconys, specifically from the late 80s-mid 90s? There are some great silos I remember seeing on the shelf of the sporting goods store as a kid that I feel like I don't see at all these days, but maybe I'm just misremembering.
