adidas and Stella McCartney collaborate again for an innovative take on women’s models of the Ultraboost, the Ultraboost X, and the Pureboost X. The Ultraboost has a bold color option that mixes gold and orange hues and another monochrome option in rose over a Boost midsole. Monochrome grey and neon versions of the Ultraboost X feature an elastic strap design over a Boost midsole with a raised midfoot. A minimal Pureboost model rounds out this collection with a raised midfoot in a black model and another colorway with black, brown, maroon, black, and pink over a midsole with rubber and Boost cushioning.
Concepts x adidas Consortium Energy Boost Concepts – White/Blaeme/Pow Tea ($200)
adidas Consortium and Boston’s Concepts sneaker shop combine on a massage parlor-themed “Shiatsu” Energy Boost. With jade green hits on the Three Stripes and on the marbled outsole meant to evoke the decorative elements in Boston massage parlors, the sneaker also includes a terrycloth interior to resemble spa towels. White Primeknit covers the upper, and co-branded tongue tags and insoles cement the collaboration.
We are proud to define the next chapter of the ongoing adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange in mutual cooperation with European retailer, Solebox.
In the spirit of the Sneaker Exchange campaign, we were inspired by the idea of geography and what it meant for two shops from two continents to come together to create a common vision.
For our concept, we looked to the Earth’s tectonic plates — specifically the place where the North American and Eurasian plates meet. Within a national park in Iceland, the Silfra Rift not only joins the two continents together, but is also a world renowned scuba diving sight known for its clear waters and the unique ability to swim in between the huge rock walls of the continental plates.
The Packer x Solebox x adidas Consortium “Silfra Rift” pack features the adidas UltraBoost Mid and the adidas Energy Boost and will be exclusively dropping at both partner stores on Nov. 4th.
Stay tuned for further info leading up to the release…

While signature models have remained a constant in the basketball world, we’ve seen less attention paid to the notion of “player exclusives” in recent years.
With a new season right around the corner, adidas looks to reinvigorate the PE formula by not only outfitting rising NBA star, Kristaps Porzingis, with his very own NY Knicks-colored edition of the Crazy Explosive, but also creating a super-limited run to be made available to the public. Aside from the personalized heel strip, the shoe also features a royal/black Primeknit upper with orange accents and a black midsole encapsulating the Boost cushioning.
Limited to only 100 pairs, the Kristaps Porzingis Crazy Explosive PE ($150) will be available exclusively at a special release event at our Jersey City location (382 Marin Blvd) this Thursday, October 12th @ 6pm.
KP, himself, will be in attendance to meet fans and sign autographs, plus more surprises to come. Customers can begin lining up at 1pm. Event starts at 6pm. Inquire at store for full release details.
adidas’ success has been linked to toeing the line between performance and heritage, and with this “RUN THRU TIME” pack, the Brand with Three Stripes again explores that relationship. Inspired by the Boston Super and Marathon TR models from the archive, the UltraBoost Mid and Energy Boost implement Primeknit construction and Boost cushioning with a nod to the minimal designs of runners from the past. The UltraBoost Mid features a cuffed sock construction in blue with blue suede mudguards and eyestays, along with a grey heel cup and a cageless construction with knit stripes. The Energy Boost features tonal grey Primeknit with a plastic cage with grey suede hits on the toe, heel, and tongue over a Boost midsole with a red stripe. Two Climacool caps also accompany the collection, one in blue and another in white, with a reflective logo and white and red stripes.
The entire collection will be available at midnight EST Tuesday, July 18th at PackerShoes.com. Also available on Wednesday, July 19th in-store at both Packer locations.
When adidas introduced the Ultra Boost, they shifted the game with a model that blends style and comfort. A”Triple Black” edition combines a black painted Boost midsole with a blacked out upper with a new wrinkle — a matted out heel cup. The white model mixes a foggy white cage and a hint of grey on the inner midsole bumper.
In 2015, when adidas introduced the NMD_R1, a minimalist juggernaut of a sneaker came on the scene in the same colorway adopted here to the NMD_XR1. This “OG” colorway features black on the upper, TPU cage, and outsole over a white Boost midsole with red and blue bumpers. A black leather heel tab holds the white heel pull, cinching the look.
Available now in-store at both Packer locations and online at PackerShoes.com
This past weekend, we partnered up with adidas Football and adidas Running to launch the UltraBoost Cleat in two new colorways. In conjunction with the Cleat, we also dropped two UltraBoost 3.0s in the same triple white and black/silver colorways.
On hand to help us launch the drop was NFL 1st-round hopeful and newly-signed adidas athlete, Jabrill Peppers, a local hometown hero who attended Paramus Catholic High School. Many came out to celebrate the star athlete, including his old high school coach, Dan Sabella, and athletic director, Scott Langan, who were surprised with a $10,000 check on behalf of adidas and Packer that would go towards a scholarship fund for gifted athletes. A diverse crowd of fans showed up as well — everyone from adidas diehards to Paramus Catholic alum to Michigan faithful.
Check out the full event recap below and stay tuned leading up to this Thursday’s NFL Draft for some more surprises still to come from adidas and Packer.
Packer and adidas are gearing up for the NFL Draft with a special release event tomorrow, April 22nd, featuring an in-store appearance by top prospect and local football hero, Jabrill Peppers.
Some highly sought-after footwear will be available as adidas Running and adidas Football join forces to offer a chance at 2 colorways each of the UltraBoost 3.0 and UltraBoost Cleat.
Jabrill Peppers, who played for local high school football powerhouse, Paramus Catholic, will be on hand at the Packer Teaneck location from 12 noon to 1:30 to meet with fans and sign shoes, boxes, etc.
