Rapper Trinidad Jame $ and global running brand Saucony have announced the release of their new collaboration, the Hommewrk x Saucony Jazz 81.

The new collaboration pays homage to the rapper’s Trinidadian heritage with a special ‘Sorrel Red’ colourway of Saucony’s iconic Jazz 81 sneaker. The color is inspired by sorrel, a drink made from dried hibiscus flower petals. Jame $ was also inspired by a sneaker he owned as an immigrant when he first moved to America.

The sneaker features a translucent toe, heel tab and Saucony River logos, as well as an embroidered hibiscus flower on the back of the tongue. The Hommewrk brand will be present on the tongue and printed on the heels and insoles.

A limited number of pairs were available for purchase at ComplexCon, which took place in Long Beach, Calif., November 6-7. The event booth was all red and featured a one-room school layout, inspired by Hommewrk’s emphasis on learning together. After the event, Saucony and Trinidad Jame $ will donate “Sorrel Red” school props and co-branded school supplies to Crete Academy, continuing the rapper’s donations and support for the school.

The collaboration was initially revealed during the season 10 finale of Full Size Run, a weekly sneaker and style show co-hosted by Jame $, where the rapper gifted each of the other co-hosts a pair of shoes. . The shoe will be available worldwide on Black Friday, November 26.
