Limited Edt x adidas Superstar 80s Vault ($150)
Following a successful 2015 collaboration, Singapore’s Limited EDT joins with adidas Consortium again to drop a luxury version of the Superstar. Inspired by dress shoes, the stripes have come off, leaving a burgundy upper, a color inspired by smoking jackets and cigar rooms. The detailed embroidery on the medial portions of the shoes are inspired by Batik, a southeast Asian method of dyeing. Continuing the luxe approach, the shell toe is also made of leather, as is the soft lining of the shoe.
Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com
XHIBITION x adidas Consortium Terrex Tracefinder ($280)
Cleveland’s XHIBITION Consortium boutique provides the design details to a BOOST-cushioned boot called the Terrex Tracefinder. Ohio’s stretch of the Appalachian trail inspired the design of this high top boot with grey suede and wool with a blue heel pull and co-branded tongue tabs and footbeds. A large elastic strap stretches across the laces and wraps around the heel to provide support.

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…

Kasina x adidas Consortium Superstar Boost – White/Gum ($220)
Korea’s Kasina and adidas Consortium get together for the release of a modified Superstar that pays respect to the Korean “Taesahae” tradition of cobbling shoes. Just like Korean culture, the shoe is a blend of new technology–like the use of BOOST cushioning–and heritage, like the choice of the Superstar. “1997” appears on the heel of the white nubuck upper, a nod to the year the Korean boutique opened. Co-branding also appears on the tongue and footbeds to cement the collaboration.
Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available tomorrow, October 21st in-store at both Packer locations.
1989 marked the inception of both Japan’s United Arrows & Sons and Italy’s Slam Jam, and the duo links up for two models for adidas’ Sneaker Exchange program. They keep it classic by tackling the Gazelle and Campus, each done in subtle ways to reference locally-sourced materials. The Campus uses high quality organic cotton to mirror Japanese Ikeuchi and the Gazelle opts for Alcantara, a material created in 1972 by Japanese and Italian companies. Clever co-branded details hit each shoe to round out the narratives for each model.
Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com
United Arrows & Sons x Slam Jam x adidas Consortium Campus S.E. – White ($150)
