The XENO adidas Originals ZX Flux is inspired by snakeskin, particularly the Xenopeltis snake found in Southeast Asia.
The designers took the snake’s highly iridescent scales and pushed adidas’ history of snakeskin to another level. This predominantly black shoe is capable of exploding into bright colors that span the entire spectrum of the rainbow with a single flash from a camera. It doesn’t just reflect one color, either. As the light shifts so too does the color. In that sense, the shoe is completely transformed whenever you see it through the camera lens.
Part of the XENO pack which consists of a Superstar 80 and Metro Attitude, the adidas Originals ZX Flux XENO is now available in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.
The ASICS archives are deep with buried treasure, and one of their rarer gems have just surfaced to the delight of many running aficionados.
The GEL SIGHT was originally created for the Japanese Olympic team in 1992 and the model never officially released outside of Japan. Now it finally makes its global return, true to its original form down to the smallest detail; from the custom toe pattern, to the “Build Up” midsole, to the visible window technology found underfoot on the outsole.
The OG “World Challenger” colorway referenced Japan’s Olympic aspirations, and now sets its sights on the retro runner competition as it makes its long awaited comeback in 2015.
The ASICS GEL-Sight OG “World Challenger” is now available both in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.

Building on a history of pioneering innovation and craftsmanship, the 29th iteration of the successful Air Jordan franchise is the world’s first basketball shoe to be tailored for flight. With the launch of this year’s signature Air Jordan release, the brand continues its commitment to bringing innovation and style to the hardwood with the best on-court footwear and apparel for the world’s greatest athletes. Each year, the Air Jordan launch serves as a platform for the Jordan Brand to push consumer expectations for the style and performance of on-court basketball shoes. Since 1985, the launch of the brand’s most premium performance product has debuted innovations such as Visible Air in the AJ III, carbon-fiber materials in the AJ XI, and most recently, Flight Plate technology in the Air Jordan XX8.
The Air Jordan XX9 is no different – featuring two revolutionary technologies: an evolved Flight Plate coupled with the first-ever performance-woven upper. This design creates a shoe that feels and plays as if it were tailored specifically to each athlete’s foot.
The Air Jordan XX9 features the world’s first performance-woven upper. Finding inspiration in Italy, the home of some of the world’s greatest craftsmen, the Jordan design team created an upper that provides structure, support, interior comfort and exterior abrasion resistance. Using state-of-the-art weaving machines, the team learned they could provide all four major elements of the shoe in a single layer of material.
The performance-woven upper delivers superior abrasion resistance, along with an entirely new look on the outside of the shoe. The structure and fit of the shoe are engineered through Flight Web tunnels, and strategic panels of stiffer and softer flex to enhance natural motion. The absence of numerous layers and adhesion technologies creates an incredibly comfortable, sock-like interior lining with superior breathability. Using webbed straps that wrap the foot and integrate with the laces, the Flight Web fit system offers superior mid-foot lockdown that moves with the athlete. Woven channels in the upper enhance the Flight Web fit system, while a double-lasted heel helps dampen the impact on hard landings. Articulated padding in the collar adds to the premium, signature feel of the shoe and helps prevent the heel from slipping.
The Air Jordan XX9 also features the newest iteration of Flight Plate. Harnessing the energy of every step for explosive liftoff and optimal energy return, the evolved Flight Plate maximizes the responsiveness of the Nike Zoom Air units in the forefoot through the use of a Pebax® moderator plate. The plate provides managed compression and deflection of the Nike Zoom Air cushioning units, creating a larger sweet spot for optimal performance. In this year’s shoe, the forefoot and heel are linked by a tendril – a small bridge of outsole – providing a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
Built with premium materials and an innovative construction process, the Air Jordan XX9 acts as a North Star for the rest of the brand, introducing and perfecting technology that will set the precedent for Jordan Brand’s signature performance shoes. Paying homage to the brand’s rich history of premium products, the Air Jordan XX9 features Italian craftsmanship, and a product that early wear testers, such as Russell Westbrook, say raises the bar for comfort and fit right out of the box.
Committed to helping athletes take flight, performance is a core value for the Jordan Brand. While most signature shoes are constructed around a signature athlete’s foot, the Air Jordan will provide a tailored feel for every consumer. Be sure to keep an eye on Jordan Brand athletes during the post-season to see the shoe in action as competition reaches its peak.
Look for the Air Jordan XX9 in black / team orange – dark grey to launch this Saturday – September 6th in-store & via email order at Packer Shoes.
