The “Claim A Seat” version of the Claima x Saucony 3D Grid Hurricane is not simply a sneaker, but offers much more.

Short for “Claim A Seat At The Table,” Claima Stories shares the journeys of emerging creatives and entrepreneurs of color. Helmed by co-founder Bimma Williams — who is certainly no stranger to the world of sneakers, having spent much of his career at some of the industries biggest names — the independent podcast has since celebrated the work of over 100 different talents. And now, as part of their own “Claim A Seat” initiative, Williams and his team are channeling their voice through a very special collaboration with Saucony and the 3D Grid Hurricane.
“This collaboration is near and dear to my heart; from my own beginnings in the footwear industry at Saucony to the heartfelt nod to my hometown of Louisiana through the name ‘3D Grid Hurricane’,” said Bimma Williams, Co-Founder of Claima. “This partnership symbolizes the value of following one’s dreams and staying true to one’s mission. The ‘3D Grid Hurricane’ sneaker is a testament to resilience and collaboration, co-designed by a dear friend of mine, John Humphrey of Beignet Boys in New Orleans.”
Having began his career with the footwear brand several years ago, the Claima Stories x Saucony 3D Grid Hurricane is nothing short of a full circle moment for Williams. Co-designed with John Humphrey of the Beignet Boys, the collaboration sees the iconic silhouette clothed in Claima’s signature shade of purple. Gilded accents are then threaded all along the shoe’s premium suede, complementing not only the river-inspired logo at the sides but also the embroidered branding atop both the forefoot and heel.
