Reebok Pyro x Adsum – ClassicWht/Blue/Lime/Org – ($120)
Reebok and the Brooklyn-based Adsum label team up for a reprisal of the 1992 Pyro silhouette. Leaving the Pyro’s shape to do the heavy lifting, white mesh provides the base with tan suede overlays meant to evoke the beach. Reebok’s Vector stripes appear in blue with green a lime green border, and lime also appears on the outsole around the visible Hexalite cushioning. Orange co-branded footbeds and lace tips add subtle touches to this model that gets a new breath of life from the collaboration.
Available on February 28th at 12AM Midnight EST on PackerShoes.com and at 12PM Noon EST in-store at Teaneck.
Reebok Workout Plus x Nepenthes NY – White/Steel/Blue/Core – ($120)
Reebok taps Japanese workwear design house, Nepenthes, to revisit their timeless Workout Low silhouette. The collaboration keeps the laid back aesthetic of the Workout Plus Low which is further elevated through a simple fabrication switch. The familiar white leather sits across the full length of the upper, while the midfoot houses a grey hairy suede panel. The same hue of grey colours the outsole, while a classic red and blue colouring highlights the tongue branding.
Available on February 15th at 12AM Midnight EST on PackerShoes.com and in-store at 12PM Noon EST at Teaneck.
Reebok Club C 85 Mu X Bronze 56K– Light Sand/SushiGreen/Collegiate Navy – $120
Skate company Brone 56K and Reebok get together for a minimal Club C 85. Leaving the clean white lines lines in tact through the upper, a navy heel has Bronze 56K branding, as does the tongue tag, which represents both brands. A navy terrycloth liner adds comfort, while a “sushi green” translucent outsole completes this sleek rendition of the Club c 85.
Reebok Workout Ripple OG – Chalk/DarkRoyal/Red – $90
The clean and classic Reebok Workout Ripple OG arrives in white. White leather hits the upper with a blue and red window box logo and a woven tongue logo. Terrycloth lines the sneaker, which is finished off by a jagged rubber sole.
FootPatrol x Highs and Lows x Reebok “Common Youth”
Inspired by the childhood travels of Matt Thomas, founder and creative director of Highs and Lows, London’s Footpatrol and Perth-based boutique Highs and Lows have come together with Reebok for a two-sneaker collaboration featuring the Reebok Classic Leather Clip and The Phase One Pro.
The Reebok Classic Leather Clip comes wrapped in a premium white leather upper, with navy and burgundy coming across the sneaker. The pops of color are nods to the colors of the British and Australian passports. The Phase One Pro comes in a vintage leather with cream nubuck overlays along with Reebok’s signature crest logo, dual-branded logo lock up on the heel, repeat logo pull tab on the tongue, and two sets of laces.

Ever since the debut of the Club C in 1985 (then known as the Revenge Plus), it has been one of the crown jewels of the Reebok arsenal. Its tasteful simplicity provides an enticing versatility that has always made the shoe a staple for all walks of life.
From its beginnings as a model built for the tennis court and country clubs, it has evolved and grown to reach everyone from the ‘80s fitness buffs to the fashion scene, skate culture to your dad on the couch, and nearly everybody in between.
It’s a shoe that anyone can wear and look good doing it — a notion that we celebrate with Packer’s Club C “Marcial” edition ($110). Putting a premium twist on the iconic model, its rich cream tumbled leather uppers and updated lacing bring a new level of sophistication to the timeless Club C formula.
While built on the idea of leisure and luxury, the “Marcial” is still a shoe for the people, giving appreciators of the ubiquitous silhouette a chance to dress it up a bit more than usual, while still offering the same multifaceted style applications it has always provided.
Available 12 noon EST Friday, August 10th, in-store and online at our Jersey City location and packershoes.com.
It’s difficult for a brand to completely claim ownership of a certain colorway or a combination of materials, but when it comes to the iconic “white/gum” pairing, Reebok could make a pretty solid case for themselves. That look was found all throughout the brand’s golden age arsenal, showcased perhaps most emphatically by the legendary Workout model.
With Reebok celebrating fitness heritage in 2017, we set out to create something that really reflected the DNA of the shoe and the brand, and it’s hard to talk about either without white/gum coming into the conversation. Our concept was to scramble that DNA to take the classic look and completely flip it so that everything that was white on the original becomes gum and everything that was gum becomes white.
Simple enough, but in order to execute that idea to its fullest, we used actual gum rubber for the upper so it not only had the look, but the texture as well. The tongue and side window stick to the traditional nylon construction to maintain the OG feel along with the same plush terrycloth that has been lining Workouts since the ‘80s.
Limited quantities of the Packer x Reebok Workout Lo Plus “Reverse Gum” ($120) will be available @ 12 noon EST this Friday, September 8th, in-store at both locations and online at PackerShoes.com.
Please note that the OG white/gum version pictured will not be available for purchase.
Last year, we teamed up with atmos and Reebok to black out the InstaPump Fury for the Bounty Hunter edition. Now we’re turning our attention to another beloved Japanese cultural icon — DORAEMON — the animated star of one of the most beloved children’s series of all time.
DORAEMON is a gadget-equipped robotic cat from the 22nd Century who has been entertaining kids around the world in manga comics and anime cartoons since the late ’60s. This weekend, the latest DORAEMON movie will be opening in Asia, and along with it, we’ve cooked up a special edition InstaPump Fury.
The shoe’s plush furry finish gives a nod to both new and old, referencing classic stuffed DORAEMON toys as well as the snowy arctic setting of the new movie. Call-outs to the character are sprinkled throughout the design, such as the bells on the Pump balls and the pouch pockets on the heels, with additional details found on the pull tabs and insoles.
The DORAEMON Reebok InstaPump Fury ($190: men’s sizes 4-13) will release 12 noon EST Saturday, March 4th, online only at PackerShoes.com.
Limited quantities available, exclusive to Packer and atmosNYC in the U.S.

And it’s only fitting that DORAEMON Pumps should come in kid’s sizes too! Kid’s pairs of the Versa Pump Fury will be a Japan exclusive, available only at atmos this Saturday. More info here.
