It’s not often that chambray, loopback terry, pig suede and glow-in-the-dark stars come together on one pair of shoes, but mita sneakers somehow manages to make it work.
The mita x Reebok Classic Leather30th Anniversary is the latest in a string of Reebok Classic Leather 30th Anniversary releases this year. A study in contrast and texture, the silhouette sports a mix-and-match combo of silky pig suede overlays, chambray underlays with glow-in-the-dark stars and suns, and soft, loopback terry collar linings. Adding more ingredients to the visual feast, meanwhile, is the use of a gum rubber outsole, along with mita sneakers-branded tongue woven labels, lace tips and sockliners.
The mita sneakers x Reebok Classic Leather launches tomorrow at 12pm noon in-store. Retail is $110 USD.
***Any remaining stock after our in-store launch will be made available for purchase online @ 3pm EST tomorrow afternoon (May 18th) at PackerShoes.com.***
SPECTRE is a new company that was created through a partnership between Lil Wayne and SUPRA. SPECTRE is a lifestyle footwear brand that is a reflection of Lil Wayne’s multifaceted personality, and is completely separate from SUPRA.
SPECTRE was formally launched at an event in Miami on Friday, May 3. While SPECTRE is influenced by skateboarding (because Lil Wayne is obsessed with skateboarding), it is important to note that SPECTRE is not a skateboard brand. SPECTRE is first and foremost an independent shoe company with touch points to the different components of Lil Wayne’s identity.
Their first footwear offering comes in the form of the Spectre by Supra CHIMERA, available in-store only tomorrow – May 18th @ 12pm noon EST in both the grey/teal/pink & black/red color ways. Retail is $125 USD (sold separately).
We were shocked by the terrible news that came out of Boston and have pushed back the launch of the Consortium Boston Super OG pack to May 18th 2013. Our hearts and prayers go out to the runners, spectators and everyone affected by the terrible events that took place during the Boston Marathon.
The Consortium Boston OG pack has been developed in honor of the Boston Marathon, the world’s oldest annual road racing event. Following the recent cowardly act and tragedy all Consortium accounts are invited to donate to the ONE FUND BOSTON. This donation will be used to assist the families of the victims who were killed and the victims who were most seriously affected as a result of the tragic events during the Boston Marathon.
This past week while we were up in Boston we had the opportunity to meet some of the people behind and involved with the Dorchester Boys and Girls Club. The unfortunate and tragic events that stemmed from the day of the Marathon brought out some of the best in people. We fortunately were able to see the same in the response we had to the campaign we launched and we were honored and privileged to hand over a check for $25,000 to the DB&GC last Thursday evening.
One person involved in the DB&GC who we met is a man by the name of Don Rodman, an 82-year-old retired Bostonian business man born and raised in Dorchester who gives back to the community and has the energy and enthusiasm we all should strive for. The evening was both informative and an inspiration to us all and we are proud to have been a conduit to all of those who purchased and ended up giving to this tremendous cause.
This project which literally was turned on and run with could not have been pulled off without the hustle and extra hours put in by our staff and numerous people over at NB who understood that we were doing this on a whim and did whatever they could to make things run as smooth as possible.
Not trying to rest on our laurels, we are trying to take this one step further. Starting today May 15 at noon up until the end of day May Friday May 31, we are going to donate 10% of all sales thru our store and website to the Dorchester Boys and Girls Club. That includes every single item we sell — 10% of that sale will go directly to the Club. We will also be leaving up the individual links which many people took advantage of which gives the opportunity to add to your sale or just donate a pre determined amount to the DB&GC.
Thank you again and we hope we can help ease some of the pain of this most tragic event.
