This edition of adidas’ Sneaker Exchange program pairs NYC’s Alife with France’s Starcow for clean executions of the Stan Smith and the Gazelle. Alife has opted for a white all-over debossed approach in the past on an Air Force 1, and for this all-white Stan Smith, each boutique has its logo debossed on one of the shoes with each country’s flags on the heels. The Gazelle opts for natural earth tones and keeps the debossed logos on the white leather liner, while the exterior also boasts the dual flags with clean colorblocking of grey, brown, and light tan paired with a natural midsole.
Available at midnight EST Friday, July 28th online at PackerShoes.com. Also available on Saturday, July 29th in-store at both Packer locations.

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.

Belgium’s Antwerp Six made a large impact on the fashion industry in the 80s, and the town’s footwear boutique AVENUE gets to inject its trademark style onto two pairs of the EQT 93/16 Support from adidas Consortium. Aniline leather, often used for upholstering chairs, is used on the respective black and tan uppers, while brown veg-dyed leather lines the interiors. Co-branding is found on the tongue logos and footbeds, and the stripes are adorned with tonal embroidery for a luxe take on these monochromatic models sitting on BOOST midsoles.

Berlin’s Overkill shop has a long-standing relationship with their countrymen at adidas. This collaborative pair of Consortium models includes two versions of the EQT Support–the ADV and the Future dressed in black, white, and red to honor the coat of arms of the Kreuzberg district, where the boutique is located. The EQT Support Future has Boost soles, and the shops’ name on a grey suede panel on the inner portion set against a black and grey knit upper with red accents on the three stripes. A white mesh upper comprises much of the EQT Support ADV with red on the eyestays and the shop’s name on the grey heel cage.
Both styles will be available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available tomorrow, May 27th in-store at both Packer locations.

The fourth installment of the adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange program pairs Atlanta’s staple sneaker retailer Wish with Australia’s relatively new outlet called Sneakerboy.

The Climacool has an Adiprene outsole, while the PureBOOST has a Boost midsole and a clear outsole, finishing off the look.
