Editor’s Notes: The latest joint effort between sneaker retailer 24 Kilates and American footwear brand Saucony is on the Grid SD. Titled “La Victoria” for the first ship to circumnavigate the globe, the kicks channels the design of the 85-ton ship that was built in the Basque Country and commanded by Ferdinand Magellan.
Details include a cross-perforated pattern, an interior lined with thin red leather, ripstop along the tongue, zig-zag reinforcement stitching, brass grommets and a brass lace hook. The sneaker is finished off with the 24 Kilates crown logo, the ship’s flag on the heel tab and the tongue label, and a golden “La Victoria” logo embossed on the heel.
The pair comes in a special edition white box with red and gold embossed applications and a four-color lace pack.
