BLOODBATH RECAP BLOG @flyhumanbeyond O'luyemi N'namdi flyhumanbeyond-26

Due to overwhelming demand, the Puma x Sneaker Freaker x Packer Shoes “Bloodbath” Pop-Up store located inside of the Refinery Hotel NYC has sold out of all product and is now officially closed for business.

We would like to take this time out to thank all of the customers who made the trip to the shop and were able to purchase their goods. Special thank you to the entire Puma, Sneaker Freaker, Packer, ‘Mikey Likes It’ and Refinery Hotel staff for making this launch such a success.

For our customers who could not make the visit, do not fret, we have set aside a limited run of product from the entire collection plus a “special” addition which will launch this coming Tuesday – September 8th – at 12pm noon EDT exclusively online at PackerShoes.com.

Til next time…

The ASICS archives are deep with buried treasure, and one of their rarer gems have just surfaced to the delight of many running aficionados.

The GEL SIGHT was originally created for the Japanese Olympic team in 1992 and the model never officially released outside of Japan. Now it finally makes its global return, true to its original form down to the smallest detail; from the custom toe pattern, to the “Build Up” midsole, to the visible window technology found underfoot on the outsole.

The OG “World Challenger” colorway referenced Japan’s Olympic aspirations, and now sets its sights on the retro runner competition as it makes its long awaited comeback in 2015.

The ASICS GEL-Sight OG “World Challenger” is now available both in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.

Retail is set at $170 USD.

Since setting up shop in Teaneck, over the years we have been lucky to establish a comradery with both Stash and Atmos that has spawned a number of different special projects. 

Last March we had the pleasure of releasing our second collaborative effort with Stash on the Reebok Instapump Fury. Upon it’s sellout, we were approached by our good friends at Atmos about the possibility of a Japan release of the shoe to appease the ever growing international following shared between Stash and our store.

Fast forward ten months and 6,000 miles, today in celebration of our joint in-store appearance at their Sports Lab store, we proudly introduce the Packer Shoes x Stash x Atmos Capsule Collection.

Spearheaded by the reissue of the Packer Shoes x Stash Reebok Instapump Fury ($160 USD), this limited edition capsule features 4 new additional apparel offerings in the form of two co-branded graffiti and Japanese Katakana tees ($30 USD) and graffiti hoody ($70 USD).

Coinciding with the 8pm special in-store appearance with Stash at the Sports Lab Atmos store in Shinjuku Japan, look for the complete Packer Shoes x Stash x Atmos Capsule Collection to launch exclusively online at PackerShoes.com at 6am EST.

A limited run of the Packer Shoes x Stash Reebok Instapump Fury will also be available for purchase at 12pm noon in-store.

NB WORTHY PURPLE PE-8

Before the (insert random themed name here) packs…

Before basketball sneakers had monotonous marketing nicknames…

Before the gimmicks…

Before the “(insert player name here) promo, player, sample, exclusive” eBay searches…

Before all of the above mentioned were synonymous with “energy” driven special color mock-ups of your favorite basketball player’s signature performance shoe, there was this shoe…

In this color-way…

For this man…

The New BalanceP740 was endorsed and worn by James Worthy – and later released to the masses in the classic white/black/grey color-way. Those privy to the home games Big Game James played on the home court of Los Angeles’ Great Western Forum can definitely identify this evanescent unreleased “player exclusive” (before the term was ever coined) color-way of the New Balance P740.

Composed in a simple yet classy white and purple leather build, this version of the P740 has never seen the light of day outside the confines of home games played in the Great Western forum until now…

Due to a demand spanning close to 3 full decades, we at Packer Shoes proudly present James Worthy’s New Balance P740LA.

Look for this hardwood classic to release in limited quantities this Saturday – August 16th at 12pm noon EDT in-store and online @ PackerShoes.com.

Retail is set at $120 USD.

Stay tuned for further release updates…

2014 ASICS SNKRFRKR GL3-2

Times change, people don’t.

Since we have been open we have been fortunate enough to have a relationship with Sneaker Freaker. Things are a bit different now than when we first reached out, trying to track down some guy, more than halfway around the world that we heard was coming up with a well written, professional magazine that shed some positive light on this crazy business we are in day to day. After a few tries and a paypal payment which included EMS postage prices which were probably more than the mags themselves, we were hooked.

Fast forward and this mystery fellow we are now proud to call not only a professional colleague but a friend as well. Woody is the best at what he does and for good reason. Integrity, trust and honesty are the only things that keep things afloat and let them prosper and it is no coincidence that Sneaker Freaker has done both since those early days. SKYPE has gone a long way to bridge the gap of time and physical differences. We have been lucky to have been quoted, featured in, and on the cover a few times. Nothing ever has been more informal and yet as professional as our relationship with the entire staff.

Gone are the days of waiting for EMS. Based solely on a personal relationship and trust Sneaker Freaker is now distributed in these parts by Woody’s man on the ground Mike LaPilusa who has grown with Sneaker Freaker into one of the better distribution/agencies – Mandino’s.

What has changed over the same time? Product, distribution strategies and more industry gossip you can shake a stick at. But at the end of the day one thing still holds true — make some good shit and it is timeless.
Alvin Purple Gel Lyte 3? it has been a holy grail to most since they came out five years ago. The closest we ever got to having any in these parts were 5 pairs we begged Woody for and a ton of the mags with those 3D glasses……..

With all that said we are proud to bring back a shoe that over our ten years here in Teaneck has left all of us wanting for more. No more…….

The Sneaker Freaker x Asics GEL-Lyte III “Alvin Purple” will launch exclusively this Thursday – July 3rd – at 12pm noon EDT in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.

Retail is set at $150 USD.
