In 2015, 10 online content creators were sent to Boston to get a tour of Saucony headquarters as well as an opportunity to design their own sneakers with Saucony Originals. This is an exclusive look at Heskicks aka DJ Hes’s creation. The Heskicks x Saucony Originals “Turntable” inspired Grid 9000 will be available 8/25/2017 in very limited supply of 100 pairs on Saucony.com for $120. Direct product links will be available closer to the date, follow @Heskicks on Twitter for details.
Heskicks aka DJ Hes, is a sneaker fanatic. He has been collecting sneakers since 2003, which is when he began to DJ nightclubs. The Grid 9000 is his favorite Saucony Originals model since it is so comfortable on feet, perfect for a DJ. As a nod to the analog era of music and deejays everywhere, Heskicks themed the sneaker design after his first DJ turntable.
