Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary – White/University Red ($140)
30 years ago, Nike released the innovative and genre-shifting Air Max 1. Earlier this year, in celebration of Air Max Day, they re-released the OG red and blue colorways in limited quantities, and now the red colorway is set to release again in all of its original glory with suede and mesh over its iconic white midsole.
EDIT: Nike has pushed the launch of this shoe back. The shoe will be available Tuesday, September 26th in-store at our Teaneck location and by email order at firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2015, when adidas introduced the NMD_R1, a minimalist juggernaut of a sneaker came on the scene in the same colorway adopted here to the NMD_XR1. This “OG” colorway features black on the upper, TPU cage, and outsole over a white Boost midsole with red and blue bumpers. A black leather heel tab holds the white heel pull, cinching the look.
Available now in-store at both Packer locations and online at PackerShoes.com
The Air Jordan 13 returns in one of its original colorways that Jordan wore in the 1997-1998 season in team red, which winds through the midsole, mudguard, heel, and collar. White takes up most of the upper in tumbled leather, while black on the outsole provides contrast.
Available this Saturday, February 18th in-store at our Teaneck location and by email order at email@example.com.
Two made in the USA New Balance classics arrived, with the M996 which was first produced in the US in 1987. This model arrives 30 years later in a muted suede and mesh upper and looks as fresh as the day they arrived. The M1300 arrived in 1985 with a $130 price tag, which was among the priciest running shoes ever seen at the time and has since become a collector favorite. Arriving for 2017 in Steel Blue with a gray suede overlay, this M1300 has a look that has been on point for decades.
Like Nike Flyknit, Nike Flywire, and Nike Air technologies, the Nike Huarache platform was born in performance running and swiftly applied to other sport categories. Designed under the lens of reduction, the Huarache platform was one of Nike’s earliest attempts to give athletes exactly what they need to perform and nothing more. Twenty-three years after the debut of the Air Huarache, Nike Sportswear reintroduces shoes that combine the functionality of South American sandals and the fit of neoprene waterski boots—the Air Huarache Trainer.
Having successfully created a basketball rendition of the Huarache, Hatfield and Avar set out to create a cross-training shoe as well. The upper utilized a similar exoskeleton-innersleeve combination—with one addition. Recognizing the need for superior lockdown during resistance training and aerobic activities, a mesh strap was added, giving birth to boundary-smashing performance footwear.
The minimalist design of the Huarache dramatically reduced weight and inspired a new generation of Nike footwear designers to create footwear stripped to only the necessary components for elite performance.
The Nike Air Trainer Huarache Premium OG launches this Saturday – September 27th – in-store and via email/iMessage order at Packer Shoes.
