This fall, Packer celebrates the 110th anniversary of the opening of our original store in Yonkers, NY. To commemorate this milestone, we’ve partnered with J.Crew and ASICS Tiger to grace the beloved ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE® III with the look of four timeless dress shoe styles that have effortlessly maintained their relevance and desirability over the course of a century.

“THE 1907 COLLECTION”
Full collection, including all four shoes and four exclusive New Era caps inspired by traditional menswear fabrics, available 12 noon EST Saturday, September 30th in-store at both Packer locations and online at packershoes.com.

“When we initially introduced the “Dirty Buck” concept as part of the Gel-Lyte III anniversary celebration, it was something which was so out of the box design-wise, yet at the same time so fitting for us to represent our roots and the legacy of our original store. When it comes to style — heritage, history and timelessness are more than just adjectives, they’re the building blocks of what fashion is, has been and will be. Does style change and evolve? Of course, but its core values do not.”
“There were so many other great colorways and ideas that we had left on the creative cutting room floor when working on the “Dirty Buck” that we always felt there was more to be done with the concept. With our 110th year anniversary approaching, we thought that telling this story with a partner like J.Crew was not only outside the realm of what traditional retail is used to, but also a natural fit in terms of celebrating the idea of timeless menswear cornerstones.”

Nike Classic Cortez Nylon LHM – Ink/Ink-White ($100)
We recently saw the release of Latino Heritage Month Air Max 1, and now a Nike Classic Cortez Nylon LHM arrives as another model featuring the work of a Latin street artist. This time, Chilean artist INTI (whose name adorns the black leather heel tabs) infuses different symbols from Latin culture on the unique print across the upper. Black suede appears on the heel, toe, and tongue, providing a solid contrast for the print, while purple hits the Swoosh and a portion of the midsole.

adidas Consortium links up Germany’s The Good Will Out boutique to release a blacked out “Ankoku Toshi Jutsu” NMD_CS1. As an homage to the ninja who moves silently, the heel tabs say “The Art of Seeing through Darkness” and “The Good Will Out” in both English and Japanese. Tonal black Primeknit drapes the upper over all black Boost on the midsole with black pods and a serrated black outsole to complete the look.
