Back in January of 2017, Packer introduced the “Scary Cold” collection featuring two GORE-TEX®-equipped New Era fitteds. For the follow-up, we’re bringing back both styles — the NY Yankees and the GORE-TEX® logo — in new colorways.
The NY Yankees GORE-TEX® 59Fifty ($60) features a black on black design with white GORE-TEX® branding embroidered on the side.
The GORE-TEX® logo 59Fifty ($45) sports white embroidered GORE-TEX® branding on the front and a metal GORE-TEX® side badge.
Available 12 noon EST Friday, November 23rd in-store at both locations and online at PackerShoes.com.

Among the New York Yankees’ unprecedented 27 championship seasons, a trend has developed where the team has managed to win the World Series in exact 20 year intervals, starting in 1938 and continuing on for the ’58, ’78 and ’98 seasons.
With the 2018 Yankees now on a quest to keep that 20 year cadence going, we’ve partnered with New Era for the “Vicennial Collection”, featuring four fitted 5950 caps, each with the corresponding Yankee logo and World Series patch from those championship years.

New Era teams up with New Balance yet again, this time on the new 574 Sport silhouette. The shoe features a predominantly black leather upper with grey wool underlays, sitting atop a white midsole and gum outsole. The collaborative hat uses the same colors, with a black crown and grey wool brim. Both feature collaborative branding finishing the look.
We wanted to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who played their part in making the release of our Scary Cold collection one of the best times we’ve ever had in all our years doing this.
Special thanks to the amazing folks at Tom’s Restaurant, the blissful sounds of @japanesedee, and the unsung heroes at ASICS Tiger, New Era and UltraOlive who’s hard work and sense of humor helped make all this possible.
It’s crazy how seemingly fleeting moments in pop culture can forever alter the way we think about a word, or a phrase, or a thing. Ever since a memorable Thursday night in the ’90s, many of us now enjoy an extra layer of giddiness when we hear the words “GORE-TEX®”. Sure, we already had a deep love and appreciation for GORE-TEX® brand technology and its magical abilities to keep us warm and dry, but thanks to one of the most infamous winter coats in history, the term has come to mean so much more.
As an homage to all things GORE-TEX®, we’ve partnered with ASICS Tiger TM brand and New Era for a special collaborative collection that will hopefully shed some light on the age old question: just how cold is “SCARY COLD”?
Our winterized take on the GEL-Lyte® V GTX model ($170) features a familiar color palette comprised of premium black leather and rusty tan suede. In addition to the GORE-TEX® lining, we’ve included some other rugged cold weather updates like the boot-inspired metal d-ring lace rivets and a layer of ballistic mesh behind the asymmetrical medial logo stripes.
Also included in the collection are two GORE-TEX® equipped New Era fitted hats ($60 each) — one featuring the GORE-TEX® logo in gold, and the other, a classic navy New York Yankees cap that a gives a little nod to “Assistants to the Traveling Secretary” everywhere.
The Packer “Scary Cold” collection will release 12 noon EST Saturday, January 28th, in-store at both Packer locations and online at PackerShoes.com.
In addition to the weekend release at Packer, there will be a special early-drop breakfast event at iconic NYC institution, Tom’s Restaurant (2880 Broadway), the morning of Friday, January 27th from 8-11am. 50 pairs of the shoes will be available first come, first served, complete with a waterproof ULTRAOLIVE® dustbag and a complimentary diner breakfast for everyone that purchases a pair of the shoes.
The shoe runs true to size. It is recommended to go a half size down in the fitted hats.
