Wale was to set to release an awesome Penn Relays-themed colorway this weekend with the good folks at Villa but, unfortunately, the collaboration fell through.

The University of Pennsylvania put the kibosh on the collaboration citing that the S logo on the Saucony Grid 9000 shoe looked too much like the school's P logo. With the Penn Relays set to happen on April 28 it’s safe to say that the sneaker would have been a nice addition to the celebrated sporting event in Philadelphia.

Here’s hoping that Wale and Villa team up again and drop some heat this summer. There previously collaborations included the "Bottle Rocket" ASICS Gel-Lyte III and a Timberland 6-inch boot that was dubbed "The Gift Box."
