Neighborhood x Invincible x adidas Consortium NMD_R1 PK – Black ($200)
Taiwan’s Invincible boutique links with Japanese powerhouse NEIGHBORHOOD for a minimal take on the adidas NMD_R1 PK. Taking inspiration from NEIGHBORHOOD’s 2004 release of the adidas Superstar, this version adds a colorful tiger embroidery on one suede heel patch and ornate lettering on the other, along with leather on the eyestays and co-branded midsole bumpers and tongue tabs for a detailed take on the model.
Available Thursday night at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available Friday, December 29th in-store at both Packer locations.
UNDFTD x adidas Consortium Prophere – Tiger Camo ($160)
With the addition of the Prophere, adidas has moved away from the slimmer construction of the NMD and UltraBoost which reshaped the market. In keeping with the military approach of UNDFTD, this version boldly dresses the upper in tiger camo set against a chunky black outsole. Military UNDFTD branding also appears under the laces, while the Five Strike logo hits the heel cup to round out the collaboration.
A “lux” edition of the adidas UtraBoost is billed as a “bonus track” from the Sneakersnstuff and Social Status Sneaker Exchange collaboration from earlier in the year. Originally a sample, which was scrapped for a black and white model which took its place, the colorway sees the light of day again to close out the year with hairy suede on the tongue and suede on the toe to pair with Primeknit on the upper. This lux edition also features the Sneaker Exchange logo on the tongue as a reminder of the union of the two boutiques.
Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available tomorrow, December 20th in-store at both Packer locations.
We are proud to define the next chapter of the ongoing adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange in mutual cooperation with European retailer, Solebox.
In the spirit of the Sneaker Exchange campaign, we were inspired by the idea of geography and what it meant for two shops from two continents to come together to create a common vision.
For our concept, we looked to the Earth’s tectonic plates — specifically the place where the North American and Eurasian plates meet. Within a national park in Iceland, the Silfra Rift not only joins the two continents together, but is also a world renowned scuba diving sight known for its clear waters and the unique ability to swim in between the huge rock walls of the continental plates.
The Packer x Solebox x adidas Consortium “Silfra Rift” pack features the adidas UltraBoost Mid and the adidas Energy Boost and will be exclusively dropping at both partner stores on Nov. 4th.
Stay tuned for further info leading up to the release…

Kasina x adidas Consortium Superstar Boost – White/Gum ($220)
Korea’s Kasina and adidas Consortium get together for the release of a modified Superstar that pays respect to the Korean “Taesahae” tradition of cobbling shoes. Just like Korean culture, the shoe is a blend of new technology–like the use of BOOST cushioning–and heritage, like the choice of the Superstar. “1997” appears on the heel of the white nubuck upper, a nod to the year the Korean boutique opened. Co-branding also appears on the tongue and footbeds to cement the collaboration.
Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available tomorrow, October 21st in-store at both Packer locations.
adidas Consortium x The Good Will Out NMD_CS1 – Triple Black ($220)
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.
Available Friday night at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available Saturday, September 23rd in-store at both Packer locations. First come, first serve.
Highs & Lows x adidas Consortium EQT Support ADV – Sand/Olive ($180)
Australia’s Highs & Lows again collaborate with adidas after tackling a 2016 EQT Support 93 and 2014 version of the EQT Guidance 93. This EQT ADV mixes a beige Primeknit upper with hits of olive on the eyelets and lacelocks for an earth-toned execution. Highs & Lows branding appears on the heel, tongue tag, and below the laces over a beige midsole with a gumsole on the outsole’s toe and heel.
Available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available tomorrow at noon at both Packer locations.
adidas Consortium and Danish apparel brand Norse Projects team up on their new “Layers” collection featuring two silhouettes: the Campus 80s PK and the Terrex Agravic. The Campus features a black Primeknit upper and added lace loops for stability, all sitting atop a classic outsole. The Terrex Agravic utilizes a sand ripstop nylon upper and Gore-Tex lining, sitting atop a segmented Boost midsole and Continental outsole. Both shoes feature abrasion-resistant welding on the upper and are finished off with co-branded insoles and tongue labels.
adidas’ success has been linked to toeing the line between performance and heritage, and with this “RUN THRU TIME” pack, the Brand with Three Stripes again explores that relationship. Inspired by the Boston Super and Marathon TR models from the archive, the UltraBoost Mid and Energy Boost implement Primeknit construction and Boost cushioning with a nod to the minimal designs of runners from the past. The UltraBoost Mid features a cuffed sock construction in blue with blue suede mudguards and eyestays, along with a grey heel cup and a cageless construction with knit stripes. The Energy Boost features tonal grey Primeknit with a plastic cage with grey suede hits on the toe, heel, and tongue over a Boost midsole with a red stripe. Two Climacool caps also accompany the collection, one in blue and another in white, with a reflective logo and white and red stripes.
The entire collection will be available at midnight EST Tuesday, July 18th at PackerShoes.com. Also available on Wednesday, July 19th in-store at both Packer locations.
