For the fourth installment of adidas Consortium’s Sneaker Exchange program, Newcastle’s END. links up with Boston’s own Bodega to reinterpret the 1970s classic Haven and the new INIKI Runner. Taking cues from contemporary clothing, the INIKI features patchwork Boro denim and Sashiko stitching throughout the upper, while sitting on a white Boost sole and gum outsole for a crafted look. The Haven is draped in a soft grey suede, with Boro denim on the 3-Stripes branding and a gum outsole tying the pack together.
Available this Friday, July 7th at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available Saturday, July 8th in-store at both Packer locations.

It appears that the next big silhouette for adidas is the Iniki, which deftly blends the old and new. Two women’s models dropped, each with uppers crafted from suede and neoprene well suited for spring in purple and cream and green and cream. Boost midsoles add the modern flair, with a classic gum outsole to tie the look together.
Both styles are available now online at PackerShoes.com.
