Packer Shoes x Saucony Grid 9000 ‘Snow Beach’ Review
Description
Anyone who is familiar with Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘Can It All Be So Simple’ is going to instantly recognize the inspiration behind the Packer Shoes x Saucony Grid 9000 'Snow Beach' which was the pullover that Raekwon wore. Crafted from suede, these kicks come through in almost the same color block palette in dark yellow and navy blue. What delights us further are the red accents on the tongue, collar, and lacing system which deliver another dimension of contrast and vibrancy to an already aesthetically pleasing pair of a masterpiece.

The Packer Shoes x Saucony Grid 9000 ‘Snow Beach’ is inspired by the jacket worn by Raekwon in the music video for ‘Can It All Be So Simple’ by his group, the Wu-Tang Clan. Coming through in almost the same colorways, dark yellow and navy blue suede fills the upper with a navy blue accented white sole. Red embellishments run through the lacing system and collar for nice finishing touches.
