The new Sneaker Freaker x Saucony Grid SD "Kushwhacker" has been a long time coming.

Anyone who stays up on the physical copies of the Australian footwear "boogazine" Sneaker Freaker no doubt saw this shoe in its pages, but things have been quiet for a while as far as an actual release date goes. The good news is that the Aussies behind this shoe are almost ready to let it go. For the unfamiliar, the "Kushwhacker" nickname on this Saucony Grid SD is a throwback to the "Bushwhacker" Saucony project from Sneaker Freaker in 2012.

The clearly cannabis-inspired sneakers will release on June 13 exclusively via Sneaker Freaker.

UPDATE 6/25: The Sneaker Freaker x Saucony Grid SD "Kushwhacker" will release at additional retailers, including Sneaker Politics, on Saturday, June 27.
