PACKER EQT SL80-8
When we were given the opportunity to work on the EQT project with Adidas there was something that just felt right about taking the EQT Support (a shoe that has gained a worldwide cult following over the years) and tying it back to other iconic Adi shoes and color ways with a flip of materials that we hoped would be as timeless as the OG.

Our first EQT was inspired by a groundbreaking shoe celebrating its 30th anniversary (the adidas Micropacer). Our second, based on a shoe coming up on it’s 35th, is a bit more subtle but just as iconic in the Adidas running archives – the adidas SL 80. This isn’t the first time the navy/gold of the inspirational SL 80 has been reinterpreted on an Adidas shoe but taking the simplicity of the original design and reinterpreting it on the EQT Support felt like a good compliment to the Micropacer OG.

Being one of Adidas’ original runners, we felt that releasing this project right around the NYC marathon was only right as well.

The release of this EQT shoe, one of the many projects we have been fortunate to have been involved with over the ten years since we opened up in Teaneck also gives us a moment to pause, look back and be thankful. Over that time much has changed — but thankfully much has stayed the same. During the first years we were open, the internet and social media were not the powerful tool that they are today. The community that has supported us — from customers to those in the industry — helped build the base that we thankfully continue today. With the release of this shoe we are going to give a portion of the sales from each shoe to two causes which we feel is a integral part of that community:

The Wounded Warrior Project – Our first Adidas project was based off the history of the NJ Americans who played two miles down the road at the Teaneck Armory. We have gotten to know many of those who work there and have been customers over time.

The Bradley Carbone Recovery Fund – We have known Bradley from his early media days at Complex thru his current position over at Adidas. Always a friend and supporter of the industry and store, Brad was involved in a serious snowboarding accident a few months back. Since then, a fund was started which has thankfully almost reached it’s goal; this shoe and some of it’s proceeds will help bridge that gap.

2014 OCT 10 RBK KH HANON ZX550-14

For Fall / Winter 2014, Consortium release a one-to-one reissue of the original ZX 550, a shoe that has sadly been missing from adidas’s own archive so far.

Ensuring the shoe is treated with the utmost respect, this version stays true to the 1986 original in every detail – from the colourway and materials used to the unique outsole construction. A combination of mesh, synthetic suede, and leather is expertly executed in black, grey, white and flashes of red on the upper; whilst the model’s distinctive midsole is delivered in black-and-white.

In order that the ZX550 could be brought back to life as close as possible to the original, the Consortium design team were lucky enough to borrow an OG model from London based collector Robert Brooks, who first refreshed the silhouette last year as his contribution to the highly limited adidas Collectors Project.

The adidas Consortium ZX550 OG releases Saturday – October 11th – in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.

Retail is set at $115 USD.

Putting an extravagant spin on a sportswear classic, adidas Consortium brings us a dramatic contrast that appeals to fans of both realms in the form of the Adizero Adios 2.

Diving deep into the vaults of their performance line the first time giving it a lifestyle perspective, the fall/winter adizero Adios 2 collection features four models in two separate releases for the cooler season. Made with the meticulous detail and forward-thinking designs famed by Consortium releases, the adizero profiles still features technical elements — synthetic suede and waterproof mesh at the sneaker’s forefront — while implementation of fashion-forward prints are seen to panel its uppers.

The adidas Consortium Adizero Adios 2 launches this Saturday, August 31st in black/yellow and crystal/mint both in-store and online PackerShoes.com (12pm noon EST). Retail is set at $140 USD.

Paying tribute to their hometown of Aberdeen (The Granite City), the Hanon x adidas Consortium Centaur displays a premium blend of suede, mesh and nubuck. The grey upper of the Centaur depicts the seasonal change of Aberdeen’s granite landscape. At the rear of the shoe there is a dark grey suede with a heavy nap representing the gloom of winter which is offset by a dual layered silver mesh and light grey nubuck that leans towards the fairer months of the year. Additional features appear by way of red accents, granite three stripes, multi print sock liner and dual branding via debossed heel tabs and embroidered Consortium tongue pulls. The Hanon flame appears on the left shoe whilst the Adidas Trefoil is applied on the right. Each Hanon Centaur comes with silver foil footbed labels, three sets of laces – one tonal, one contrast and one with a reflective weave.

Accompanying the Hanon model, we also have 3 colors of the updated Centaur 2013. Retooled with a heat sealed no stitch upper and constructed from a breathable mesh overlay, the 2013 model also features panels of synthetic suede on top of a white midsole and a camouflage style patterned outsole.

Releasing this Saturday (2/2), all 4 Centaur models are now available for pre-order both in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.
