This edition of adidas’ Sneaker Exchange program pairs NYC’s Alife with France’s Starcow for clean executions of the Stan Smith and the Gazelle. Alife has opted for a white all-over debossed approach in the past on an Air Force 1, and for this all-white Stan Smith, each boutique has its logo debossed on one of the shoes with each country’s flags on the heels. The Gazelle opts for natural earth tones and keeps the debossed logos on the white leather liner, while the exterior also boasts the dual flags with clean colorblocking of grey, brown, and light tan paired with a natural midsole.
Available at midnight EST Friday, July 28th online at PackerShoes.com. Also available on Saturday, July 29th in-store at both Packer locations.
ALIFE x Starcow x adidas Consortium Stan Smith S.E. – White/Tan ($150)

For the fourth installment of adidas Consortium’s Sneaker Exchange program, Newcastle’s END. links up with Boston’s own Bodega to reinterpret the 1970s classic Haven and the new INIKI Runner. Taking cues from contemporary clothing, the INIKI features patchwork Boro denim and Sashiko stitching throughout the upper, while sitting on a white Boost sole and gum outsole for a crafted look. The Haven is draped in a soft grey suede, with Boro denim on the 3-Stripes branding and a gum outsole tying the pack together.

The fourth installment of the adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange program pairs Atlanta’s staple sneaker retailer Wish with Australia’s relatively new outlet called Sneakerboy. The box jellyfish provided the design inspiration for the models, a deadly marine creature known for its luminescence and transparency. Both models glow in the dark and gleam in stark white in the day with the PureBOOST and the Climacool 1 PK both boasting a loose gauge Primeknit upper. The Climacool has an Adiprene outsole, while the PureBOOST has a Boost midsole and a clear outsole, finishing off the look.
Available at midnight EST this Friday, May 19th online at PackerShoes.com. Also available on Saturday, May 20th in-store at both Packer locations.
