Picking up where our worldwide exclusive EQT 91 left off, we proudly celebrate part two of the Packer x adidas Consortium “EQT Adventure” collection with the EQT 91/18.
While the first shoe paid homage to the colors and materials of the classic outdoor-focused EQT Adventure line, the Boost™ + Primeknit equipped EQT 91/18 model takes those foundational cues and evolves the concept into something geared for today and beyond.
Using the EQT 91/18’s blend of classic Equipment design and contemporary perspectives as its canvas, the shoe features a combination of materials that give nods to both eras. A wool-blend Primeknit vamp sits alongside a hairy suede quarter for a juxtaposition that creates the perfect bridge between the nostalgic look and feel of 1991 and the modern production possibilities of 2018.
A molded heel and 3-stripe TPU cage add support to the upper, finished with a premium leather lining and rope laces. At its base, a black Boost™ midsole is accented by essential overrun 3-stripe marks branding and a durable rubber outsole.
The Packer x adidas Consortium 91/18 will be available 12 noon EST, Saturday, September 29th, in-store at both Packer locations and online at packershoes.com (sizes 7-13).
As an added bonus, we’ve teamed up with legendary mountain bike pioneers, Ritchey, to create the special custom Timberwolf bike seen here. Featuring a two-tone gradient paint job and Packer/adidas co-branding, the bike will be given away to one lucky purchaser of the shoe. Stay tuned for more details leading up to the Saturday release.
When the adidas Equipment line first launched in 1991, its goal was to be “Everything that’s essential. Nothing that’s not,” and that included a very minimal approach to color. The initial EQT line-up is best remembered for its running silhouettes and their instantly recognizable white/green color scheme — a look that went against the grain by shifting the focus strictly to performance rather than relying on the bright color applications that dominated footwear trends at the time.
But the EQT line meant much more than running, as it covered the gamut of footwear categories and athletic needs. One of the true high-points of the early EQT output was the “Adventure Equipment” line, featuring a full range of rugged outdoor footwear options that not only demonstrated the versatility of the brand’s new direction, but also introduced a wider spectrum of colors and materials.
The Packer x adidas EQT ’91 celebrates the classic EQT Adventure palettes by taking color cues from archive models to create an homage to this seminal era of adidas footwear. The shoe features a combination of premium suedes and leather complemented by heavy duty mesh and technical synthetics.
Limited to only 250 pairs and available exclusively at Packer, the shoe will release in-store 12 noon Friday, September 21st, at the Packer Teaneck grand re-opening for a retail price of $155. An online release will follow on Saturday, September 22nd, at 12 noon EST at packershoes.com.

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.

Berlin’s Overkill shop has a long-standing relationship with their countrymen at adidas.

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.
