I love it when we see a sneaker that has a strong concept behind it. This week's knock-out release is Saucony's GRID 9000 which comes in a striking red and blue colourway, inspired by the ancient sport of boxing.
We took the pair to our local boxing gym to put the sneakers in their natural habitat. Our model, Tom donned the gloves and got put to work on the punch bags and in the ring to see if the 'sparring' release would live up to it's name.
This week's photo of the week shows Tom resting on the ropes in the ring during the session. The complementary colours and the strong texture of the rope provides context that is immediately recognisable.

Plus a huge shout out to FIT Club Gym Newcastle for letting us use their space for the shoot.
