2014 has become quite the celebratory year for many different reasons. While we as a store celebrate our 10th anniversary of doing business in Teaneck, NJ – 2014 also marks the 30th anniversary of the iconic adidas Micropacer running shoe in addition to the reintroduction of cult classic adidas Equipment Running Support from 1993.
Released originally in 1984, the Micropacer’s initial launch coincided with the XXIII Olympics which took place in Los Angeles that year. Upon its arrival, its silver upper and pop-colors were like nothing ever seen before. From the metallic kangaroo leather application on the upper and pop color accents all the way down to the microprocessor located in the left shoe for tracking time and distance, the adidas Micropacer quickly cemented its position as one of the greatest running silos ever created.
Fast forward a few years – support and motion control were the big buzz-words in the world of running shoes in the 1990s and the EQT Running Support had both areas covered. Released in 1993, the sneaker featured adidas’s TORSION system, a shock-absorbing “Impact Cell” in the heel and an ergonomic wrap-around tongue. Due to these technical and performance advantages, the EQT Running Support eventually became another bar-raising silo for adidas internationally.
Taking into account the significance in adidas’ reactivation of both the Micropacer and the EQT Support in 2014, when their Originals team bestowed the opportunity for our store to work on the EQT Running Support shoe, it was a no brainer to unify the two classic runners in a way never seen before…
It is an honor and a privilege for us at Packer Shoes to officially present the adidas Originals Equipment (EQT) Running Support “Micropacer” edition.
Look for the adidas Originals EQT Running Support “Micropacer” to launch at 12pm noon EDT next Friday – August 29th – exclusively in our store and online at PackerShoes.com.
Retail is set at $140 USD.
