For an expansive collection of four shoes and various apparel, adidas teams up with Japanese designer Shinsuke Takizawa’s NEIGHBORHOOD. For the footwear options, an NMD_R1 option adds a TPU sheet with serrated details over black Boost midsole and black bumpers, while a new model called the Chop Shop also uses the geometric teeth pattern set over a white Boost midsole. The classic Gazelle gets blacked out with branding on the heel, as does the fourth and final model, the silhouette formally known as the Iniki, which is now known as the I-5923. Apparel options are also blacked out and include a soccer jersey, track pants, three jackets, and a crewneck sweatshirt.
The entire collection will be available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. Also available Saturday, February 24th in-store at both Packer locations. First come, first serve.

CONSORTIUM UNDFTD X NBHD
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).
Micropacer $220 / Official Mid 80s $180 / T-shirts $60
