adidas Originals reconstructs classic silhouettes in the ‘Never Made’ Pack. Encompassing a variety of sneakers from the brand’s past, the shoes are enhanced with updated technology, blending futuristic soles with mismatched uppers.
The pack includes the 98 X Crazy BYW – a hybrid model for greater flexibility in the foot, ZX 930 X EQT – noted as, “the classic-meets-contemporary Boost EQT midsole”, Country x Kamanda that dons a suede upper with a textured gum sole, and the Micropacer x R2 – an influential design with an NMD Boost sole.
Going into this collaborative project with the Adidas Originals crew on our interpretation on the EQT Running Support ‘SL 80’, and with the NYC Marathon only a few days away, we decided take this opportunity to ‘pay it forward’ and give recognition to our family members, colleagues, neighbors and clientele who have supported Packer Shoes from the start of our opening ten years ago here in Teaneck, NJ.
The entire staff at Packer Shoes in conjunction with the Adidas Originals team would like to thank EVERYONE who participated in the #OurSupport Friends & Family Walk this past Sunday (10.26.14) in support of both the The Wounded Warrior ProjectandThe Bradley Carbone Recovery Fund. Complimentary pairs of our upcoming “SL 80” adidas Originals EQT Running Support and #OurSupport t-shirts were handed out to all how participated in the 2 mile walk from the Teaneck Armory straight down Teaneck Road to the store.
We would also like to take this time to send a special thank you to the adidas Originals team for putting in the extra effort and time into this project and help in setting up the #OurSupport walk. You are true professionals and a blessing to work with. Special thanks also goes out to Bradley Carbone for making the trek with us on Sunday. You are all a true beacon of hope and you will always have #oursupport as our longtime friend and industry colleague.

For Consortium SS14, two of streetwear’s most prolific brands and long term adidas partners, Neighborhood and Undefeated, finally come together to produce a collection of luxurious, blacked-out wares.
UNDFTD’s fashion-forward athletic approach is perfectly translated through the choice of two very different shoe models, the Micropacer and Official Mid 80s, whilst NBHD’s premium-cut nature and use of bold graphics is reflected on the uppers. Amidst the bridle leather and full nap suede lies a bold bold triple branding, showcasing UNDFTD’’s iconic Five -Strike logo and NBHD’s skull and crossbones motif within a tongue label that pays homage to the vintage years of adidas France.
Alongside the footwear, the collection includes two t-shirts, one black and one white, featuring bold branding across the chest.
UNDFTD x NBHD Consortium Pack will release April 19th at 12pm noon in-store at Packer Shoes(Remaining stock – if any – from our in-store launch will be made available at 3pm that afternoon online @PackerShoes.com).
