The 2017 baseball season may be over, but in the city that never sleeps, the passion for the teams that call it home shines bright all year round. For the athletes that play in NYC, the camera flashes and hovering spotlight never let up. Our latest collection with Starter gives a nod to that idea with two coaches jackets — one for the New York Mets and one for the New York Yankees — featuring team logos in reflective silver 3M.

Limited quantities available 12 noon EST today, November 9th, in-store and online @ PackerShoes.com in size S-4XL ($80 each).

Please note that these jackets run big and it’s recommended to go one size down.

This time last year, we teamed up with London’s own Footpatrol to celebrate the clashing of cultures as the New York Football Giants crossed the pond to face the LA Rams on British soil. Everyone had such a blast that the NFL decided to schedule some more games in London this season, and with it, another round of limited edition bringbacks from the Starter vault.

As the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints gear up to meet on the Wembley pitch, we’ll be releasing a limited run of classic satin jackets, complete with the Union Jack flag and co-branded inner patch.

($150 each) – Available 9am EST Saturday, September 30th, online at PackerShoes.com.

And if you’ll be in London for the game, check out Footpatrol for their in-store release and gameday get-together.

A huge thank you to Action Bronson, Starter, VICE, the Gansevoort Market and everyone who came out to support the launch of our “BCU” Collection, where a certified mob scene descended on W 14th Street all day long in celebration of Action’s new album, book and apparel capsule.

In addition to delicious chicken parm sandwiches and face time with the man of the hour —  which included autographs, pics and the occasional wrestling hold — those in attendance were also treated to an impromptu Blue Chips 7000 crowd sing-along that quickly turned into an impromptu Blue Chips 7000 performance as Bam Bam commandeered the mic and began rapping through the line, eventually spilling out onto the street where a crowd of hundreds swarmed around him to catch a glimpse.

Truly the people’s champ, Mr. Wonderful lived up to his name, staying past the scheduled stop time to make sure every last person on the line got some 1 on 1 attention — a classy gesture that did not go unnoticed by us or the fans who waited all day to see him. Salute to Action for being a pleasure from start to finish and to all who helped bring BCU to life.

When it comes to the most legendary names in baseball history, the New York Yankees have been home to a staggering share of the all-time greats. From Ruth to Gehrig, DiMaggio to Mantle, Jackson to Mattingly — through nearly every era of the sport, the Bronx Bombers have been represented by greatness and they’ve got the rings to prove it.

After wading through the unfamiliar mediocrity of their ’80s and early ’90s teams, the pieces started falling into place for what would become the kind of modern dynasty that is rarely seen in sports these days. At the core was a group of young homegrown players that would go on to solidify their place as the next generation of Yankee legends — none more so than Derek Jeter.

When the franchise gave Jeter a single digit number to wear — an honor reserved for the tip-top echelon of Yankee players — the pressure and expectations to be great seemed nearly impossible to deliver. But the man known as “The Captain” lived up to all that and more as he led by example on a daily basis, seemingly never failing to come through in the clutch and making headfirst dives into the stands and silky smooth flip plays at the plate seem like a routine day at the office.

Jeter helped lead the Yankees to five World Series rings over the course of his career, and with the team set to retire his number this weekend, we’ve partnered with Starter to create a special jacket honoring the man of the hour and the miraculous championship run he played such a crucial part in.

The jacket is a lightweight version of the Starter satin classics, perfect for spring weather and night games at the Stadium. In commemoration of the occasion, the traditional Yankee look is adorned with gold border edges and accents, with special gold World Series patches from the Jeter era running down the right arm.

Limited quantities available for both men (size S-3XL) and women (size S-XL) for a retail price of $160 each.

In addition to the Starter jacket, we also teamed up with New Era to create a matching fitted featuring the classic navy/white Yankee hat updated with a gold border around the NY logo and a white/gold MLB batter man logo on the back. Limited quantities will be available at a retail price of $38.

The “Gold Standard” collection releases Friday, May 12th, at 12 noon EST in-store at both locations and online at PackerShoes.com.
















The start of the 2017 MLB season is quickly approaching so we’ve partnered with Starter once again to get New York baseball fans properly outfitted for those cold nights out at the stadium.

The Packer exclusive “Opening Day” collection features the iconic Starter satin jacket done up in a slick silver base color for both the Mets and Yankees ($150 each). The jackets sport classic twill lettering on the chest, embroidered logo patches on the left arms and special co-branded Packer patches on the inside lining.

Also included in the collection are on-field style Mets and Yankees New Era 59FIFTY fitteds ($38 each), featuring a grey underbrim and white sweatband.

The full collection will release 12 noon EST Saturday, March 25th, in-store at both Packer locations and online at PackerShoes.com. Quantities are limited, available only at Packer.

Please note that the jackets run big and it is recommended to go one size down.












Back in January, we paid homage to a moment in New Jersey Devils history with the release of “The 334 Club” white satin Starter jacket. Now, we’ve partnered with Starter and the Devils once again to honor an even greater milestone, the franchise’s first Stanley Cup championship.

The classic green Starter Devils jacket has been brought back from the archives, true to its original form with the added touches of a championship patch on the left sleeve and a co-branded Packer patch on the inner lining.

Lord Stanley’s Cup will be making its way to the Prudential Center later this month, but before it does, you’ll have your chance to get your hands on the special edition jacket seen here on 1995 champions, Ken Daneyko, Stephane Richer, Claude Lemieux and Randy McKay.

Limited quantities of the jacket will release 12 noon EST Saturday, March 11th, exclusively in-store and online through Packer for a retail price of $150.

On January 22nd, 1987, a blizzard hit New Jersey that, by all logic, should have been more than reasonable grounds for postponing the Devils game scheduled for that night. But the powers that be decided that the show must go on, and the face-off with the Calgary Flames would proceed as planned.

Braving a foot of snow and insane road conditions, 334 dedicated fans decided that a little blizzard wasn’t going to keep them from making their way to the Meadowlands that night. When they arrived, they were treated to a virtually empty arena where they were allowed to sit wherever they wanted to witness the action-packed 7-5 win.

In appreciation of the fans’ extreme loyalty, a Devils representative went around the building taking the names and info of all the brave souls in attendance that night. They were later presented with special shirts and pins and became known as “The 334 Club” and honorary members of the New Jersey Devils family.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of that night, Packer and Starter are teaming up once again with a special limited edition run of the classic white satin Devils jacket in honor of “The 334 Club”

The jacket, along with a small “The 334 Club” Starter capsule, will be available for purchase this Friday, January 20th exclusively through Packer.

Releasing online Friday, 10am EST at PackerShoes.com.

Releasing in-store Friday, 12 noon EST at our Jersey City location.

(Please note: only the jacket will be available in-store. Additional items will be online only)

Classic Satin Jacket ($150)

Sublimated Taslan Pullover ($100)

Practice Jersey ($80)

Script Snapback ($30)

Logo Beanie ($25)

* As a bonus, a complimentary pair of tickets to an upcoming New Jersey Devils game will be included with each satin jacket purchase.

Packer and Starter join forces with Footpatrol in celebration of this weekend’s NFL action in the UK. With the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams set to face off this Sunday in London, we’ve teamed up to resurrect an iconic retro Starter jacket for each team.

In honor of the intercontinental culture clash, both jackets feature an embroidered Union Jack arm patch and a London street sign-inspired co-branded inner label.

In addition to the jackets is an unstructured 6-panel cap featuring the classic Giants logo flipped for a London motif.

The Footpatrol and Packer for Starter “London 2016” Collection will release in limited quantities in-store only on Saturday, October 22nd at Footpatrol in London.

For those not in the London area, the collection will also be available online at PackerShoes.com Sunday, October 23rd, going live at kickoff time, 9:30am EST.

Jacket sizes range from S-2XL, priced at $150 each. Hat priced at $30.
