Extra Butter recently partnered with Saucony to produce a trio of runners titled the “Space Race” pack. First up is the Grid 9000 “ACES,” which will be followed by the “Space Snack” Shadow Master—with a mystery third shoe waiting to be announced. Inspired by the Advanced Crew Escape Suit—those cool orange full pressure suits worn by the astronauts during the space shuttle’s ascent—the Grid 9000 is constructed from a mixture of nylon and suede, with 3M reflective details throughout. As a patriotic ode to the U.S.’s efforts during the space race era, the sneaker also features star-printed laces and interior comfort lining. The Grid 9000 “ACES” will be available at Extra Butter’s Lower East Side location beginning April 24 and online starting April 28.
Inspired by the space ice cream sold in planetarium gift shops, the color blocking of the Shadow Master model was executed in premium suede in order to create the chalky appearance and texture associated with the beloved ice cream. A metallic silver branded tongue tag featuring Extra Butter’s “Float Man” logo, and heel piece represent the ice cream’s silver sealed packaging. Release information for the Shadow Master will be dished out at a later date.
