John F. Kennedy issued a famous challenge to the United States population in 1961 to be the first nation to land a man on the moon and return him safely to the earth. Now labeled the “Space Race”, the USA would eventually win the competition and put its footprint on what was once considered untouchable ground. The historical accomplishment is the inspiration behind this collaboration between Saucony and NY’s Extra Butter, since Saucony is a subsidiary of the company who designed the actual boots that first touched the moon. Leading off a multiple pair collection is the Extra Butter x Saucony Grid 9000 “ACES”. Short for Advanced Crew Escape Suit, this nylon and suede orange makeup represents the pressure suits worn by the ground-breaking astronauts. Adding in a patriotic flare and interchangeable NASA-inspired EB patches for detailing, this Saucony Grid 9000 is out of this world. Reach a pair of the “ACES” when they release starting on April 24th, and keep beaming to Nice Kicks for much more from the Extra Butter x Saucony “Space Race” Pack.
