Jae Tips x Saucony Grid Azura 2000 'Remember Who Fronted'
Jae Tips who is best known for his contributions to the fitted hat community, in 2023 the Bronx native designer, rapper and sneakerhead released his first shoe collaboration with Saucony that many consider to be the best shoe of the year. The “Remember Who Fronted” Grid Azura 2000 construction, features quality materials supplied by Wolverine Worldwide, contrasting colours and patterns inspired by flowers that shouldn’t work together. However, they really do. This is why Sole Kitchen x The Kickz Stand has chosen this the “Remember Who Fronted” as our joint first inaugural 2023 SOTY!

As well as the podcast, Hendo(@sck1cks) and JP(@kicks_and_craze) host the SolekitchenAu on IG Tuesday night live sessions that discuss the most important sneaker topics nearly every week.
I’m a big feet sneaker enthusiast who has been collecting sneakers since the early 2000s. However, it was hard to find size 13 sneakers. My collection started with Nike AF1s and after meeting the SolekitchenAu crew my collection has naturally evolved to include many brands such as ASICS, Diadora, Jordan, New Balance and Saucony. As one of the regular hosts of the SK instagram Tuesday night, I love to talk about all things sneakers.
