The Reebok Aztrek by Packer is an exercise in subtle simplicity — applying the shoe with a greyscale wash that allows the lines and shapes of the design to come to life through tones and textures.
Originally introduced in 1993 as an all-purpose, all-surface runner, the Aztrek has aged like fine wine. Conceptualized by renowned footwear designer, Christian Tresser, the contours of the shoe maintain a bold balance between aggressive and elegant — a feat we sought to amplify with Packer’s collaborative take on the silhouette.
Contrasting shades of grey premium suede and pigskin come together with OG mesh underlays and reflective 3M accents to present the Aztrek through an alternate aesthetic lens that completely reimagines what the shoe can be.
Available at 10AM EST Friday, March 15th, online at PackerShoes.com and 12PM Noon EST in-store at both Packer locations. ($115/mens size 7-13)

To celebrate the release of our upcoming adidas Consortium EQT 91/18, we’ve partnered with renowned mountain bike specialists, Ritchey, to create custom co-branded Timberwolf bikes to be given away to two lucky winners.
The Timberwolf is an all-mountain trail bike, originally introduced in 1984 to meet the growing need for a rugged bike that could handle anything put in front of it. This custom “91/18” edition is fully equipped and loaded from front to back and features a two-tone gradient paint job adorned by Packer and adidas branding elements.
There are two ways to win:
Everyone who purchases a pair of the shoe at our Teaneck or Jersey City location will be entered to win the in-store bike raffle.
The first 100 customers who purchase their pair on PackerShoes.com will be automatically entered to win the online bike raffle.
Stay tuned to @packershoes Instagram account for full details on the drawings and winner announcements.
Picking up where our worldwide exclusive EQT 91 left off, we proudly celebrate part two of the Packer x adidas Consortium “EQT Adventure” collection with the EQT 91/18.
While the first shoe paid homage to the colors and materials of the classic outdoor-focused EQT Adventure line, the Boost™ + Primeknit equipped EQT 91/18 model takes those foundational cues and evolves the concept into something geared for today and beyond.
Using the EQT 91/18’s blend of classic Equipment design and contemporary perspectives as its canvas, the shoe features a combination of materials that give nods to both eras. A wool-blend Primeknit vamp sits alongside a hairy suede quarter for a juxtaposition that creates the perfect bridge between the nostalgic look and feel of 1991 and the modern production possibilities of 2018.
A molded heel and 3-stripe TPU cage add support to the upper, finished with a premium leather lining and rope laces. At its base, a black Boost™ midsole is accented by essential overrun 3-stripe marks branding and a durable rubber outsole.
The Packer x adidas Consortium 91/18 will be available 12 noon EST, Saturday, September 29th, in-store at both Packer locations and online at packershoes.com (sizes 7-13).
As an added bonus, we’ve teamed up with legendary mountain bike pioneers, Ritchey, to create the special custom Timberwolf bike seen here. Featuring a two-tone gradient paint job and Packer/adidas co-branding, the bike will be given away to one lucky purchaser of the shoe. Stay tuned for more details leading up to the Saturday release.
When the adidas Equipment line first launched in 1991, its goal was to be “Everything that’s essential. Nothing that’s not,” and that included a very minimal approach to color. The initial EQT line-up is best remembered for its running silhouettes and their instantly recognizable white/green color scheme — a look that went against the grain by shifting the focus strictly to performance rather than relying on the bright color applications that dominated footwear trends at the time.
But the EQT line meant much more than running, as it covered the gamut of footwear categories and athletic needs. One of the true high-points of the early EQT output was the “Adventure Equipment” line, featuring a full range of rugged outdoor footwear options that not only demonstrated the versatility of the brand’s new direction, but also introduced a wider spectrum of colors and materials.
The Packer x adidas EQT ’91 celebrates the classic EQT Adventure palettes by taking color cues from archive models to create an homage to this seminal era of adidas footwear. The shoe features a combination of premium suedes and leather complemented by heavy duty mesh and technical synthetics.
Limited to only 250 pairs and available exclusively at Packer, the shoe will release in-store 12 noon Friday, September 21st, at the Packer Teaneck grand re-opening for a retail price of $155. An online release will follow on Saturday, September 22nd, at 12 noon EST at packershoes.com.

This time last year, we teamed up with London’s own Footpatrol to celebrate the clashing of cultures as the New York Football Giants crossed the pond to face the LA Rams on British soil. Everyone had such a blast that the NFL decided to schedule some more games in London this season, and with it, another round of limited edition bringbacks from the Starter vault.
As the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints gear up to meet on the Wembley pitch, we’ll be releasing a limited run of classic satin jackets, complete with the Union Jack flag and co-branded inner patch.
($150 each) – Available 9am EST Saturday, September 30th, online at PackerShoes.com.
And if you’ll be in London for the game, check out Footpatrol for their in-store release and gameday get-together.

“THE 1907 COLLECTION”
Full collection, including all four shoes and four exclusive New Era caps inspired by traditional menswear fabrics, available 12 noon EST Saturday, September 30th in-store at both Packer locations and online at packershoes.com.
Also available Saturday, September 30th at jcrew.com and the following J.Crew locations:

“When we initially introduced the “Dirty Buck” concept as part of the Gel-Lyte III anniversary celebration, it was something which was so out of the box design-wise, yet at the same time so fitting for us to represent our roots and the legacy of our original store. When it comes to style — heritage, history and timelessness are more than just adjectives, they’re the building blocks of what fashion is, has been and will be. Does style change and evolve? Of course, but its core values do not.”
“There were so many other great colorways and ideas that we had left on the creative cutting room floor when working on the “Dirty Buck” that we always felt there was more to be done with the concept. With our 110th year anniversary approaching, we thought that telling this story with a partner like J.Crew was not only outside the realm of what traditional retail is used to, but also a natural fit in terms of celebrating the idea of timeless menswear cornerstones.”

(3rd Generation Owner)
See below for our “1907 Collection” mini-catalog, created in the traditional J.Crew aesthetic. Physical copies of the booklet will be available with purchase at the Liquor Store drops, September 28-29th.
It’s difficult for a brand to completely claim ownership of a certain colorway or a combination of materials, but when it comes to the iconic “white/gum” pairing, Reebok could make a pretty solid case for themselves. That look was found all throughout the brand’s golden age arsenal, showcased perhaps most emphatically by the legendary Workout model.
With Reebok celebrating fitness heritage in 2017, we set out to create something that really reflected the DNA of the shoe and the brand, and it’s hard to talk about either without white/gum coming into the conversation. Our concept was to scramble that DNA to take the classic look and completely flip it so that everything that was white on the original becomes gum and everything that was gum becomes white.
Simple enough, but in order to execute that idea to its fullest, we used actual gum rubber for the upper so it not only had the look, but the texture as well. The tongue and side window stick to the traditional nylon construction to maintain the OG feel along with the same plush terrycloth that has been lining Workouts since the ‘80s.
Limited quantities of the Packer x Reebok Workout Lo Plus “Reverse Gum” ($120) will be available @ 12 noon EST this Friday, September 8th, in-store at both locations and online at PackerShoes.com.
Please note that the OG white/gum version pictured will not be available for purchase.
