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.

Both colors are available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available tomorrow, July 21st in-store at our Jersey City location.
