adidas Originals Rivarly OG – CryWht/Blue/Orange – ($110)
adidas brought an 80s basketball silhouette called the Rivalry out of the vaults a few months back as part of its capsule collection with Eric Emanuel, and the model returns with a New York Knicks colorway. This OG version offers full grain leather across the upper with hits of orange on the collar, Three Stripes branding, and tongue. Blue hits the midsole, Three Stripes branding, Trefoil heel logo, liner, and toebox. An original Rivalry logo hits the tongue tag for a final nod to its predecessor.
The Reebok Aztrek by Packer is an exercise in subtle simplicity — applying the shoe with a greyscale wash that allows the lines and shapes of the design to come to life through tones and textures.
Originally introduced in 1993 as an all-purpose, all-surface runner, the Aztrek has aged like fine wine. Conceptualized by renowned footwear designer, Christian Tresser, the contours of the shoe maintain a bold balance between aggressive and elegant — a feat we sought to amplify with Packer’s collaborative take on the silhouette.
Contrasting shades of grey premium suede and pigskin come together with OG mesh underlays and reflective 3M accents to present the Aztrek through an alternate aesthetic lens that completely reimagines what the shoe can be.
Available at 10AM EST Friday, March 15th, online at PackerShoes.com and 12PM Noon EST in-store at both Packer locations. ($115/mens size 7-13)
