Wale x Saucony Grid 9000 Gets Scrapped Due to Legal Issues
No one-and-done here folks, Wale debuts his second sneaker collaboration in partnership with retailer VILLA.
UPDATE: VILLA issues the following statement confirming that their collab with Wale and Saucony is scrapped -
I regret to announce that this project has been cancelled due to a legal dispute with the University of Pennsylvania, over the similarity of the logo on the tongue and their Penn "P". The sneaker will no longer be releasing and will not be available for purchase in any format.
We have another project with Wale coming in the summer that you will hear about very soon.
Wale pictured wearing a pair of Saucony Grid 9000's is confirmed to be his next limited release. The colorway is inspired by the Penn Relays, a track and field competition.
The Wale x Villa Saucony Grid 9000 features a navy blue upper along with an isolated red toe box. Gold Saucony logos can be seen on each side of the shoe while gum bottoms finish off the track inspired theme.
Stay tuned for release details and future updates here on TSG.
