No stranger to high-profile collaborations, like a recent KAWS capsule, the Peanuts gang links up with Vans for a full range of sneakers and apparel. A Snoopy-inspired collection features two adult options and three more for toddlers. Two SK8-Hi reissues rely on black and white, one black suede and canvas model with Snoopy laying on bones in the shape of the stripe and another with Joe Cool appearing on white canvas which is contrasted by black suede on the toe, eyestays, and heel. The Joe Cool SK8-Hi is also available as a zip model for kids, along with a slip-on pink model with an amorous Snoopy illustration on the toe and an Authentic silhouette in blue with an all-over print of skateboarding Snoopy in various illustrations. The apparel range consists of a short sleeve tee and pocket tee in mineral yellow and classic white, respectively. Also available are two variations on the jockey hat in black and heather grey, each featuring a different character embroidered on the front. Rounding out the collection is the Torrey coach’s jacket in white, featuring a cobranded logo on the left chest.
The entire collection will be available tonight at midnight EST online at PackerShoes.com. The men’s footwear will also be available tomorrow at noon at both Packer locations.

Canada’s fleece and lifestyle stalwart Wings + Horns was founded in 2004 as a brand that relied on high quality materials and minimal design. adidas has collaborated with the brand multiple times, and this season brings about another large-scale union with two models in multiple colorways. The ubiquitous NMD_R2 sees two iterations, one in ash grey leather and another in a light grey Primeknit. Each features hand-stiched seams and soft leather lining for comfort over a revamped Boost sole in this second version of the NMD. Two Campus models round out the footwear collection in water resistant leather and hand-stitched detailing in two colorways, navy and grey, that showcase signature Wings + Horns details and simplicity.
All 4 styles will be available at midnight EST Wednesday, April 26th online at PackerShoes.com. Also available at noon EST Thursday, April 27th in-store at both Packer locations.

Puma links up with Amsterdam streetwear brand Daily Paper on a collaborative collection featuring modern takes on some of Puma’s classic silhouettes. First up is the Puma Match, done up in premium leathers and trading in traditional laces for branded velcro straps. The Match is available in two colors: gossamer green and white. The Puma Court Platform updates the classic court silhouette with a platform sole, with premium nubuck draping the upper. Available in gossamer green as well as light grey, with a pop of orange on the midsole for contrast.
Recently, we released the Sesame Street x Puma collaboration pieces for kids, and now two models have arrived for adults, each with two options. The Puma Basket models, one in black and the other in white, get straightforward black and white canvas applications with contrasting outlines of the faces of Sesame Street characters, each over a classic white sole with heel logos from both collaborators. The Puma Suede gets all-over embroidery of Elmo’s eyes and nose on the red suede upper, while the blue model gets Cookie Monster’s eyes across blue suede.

Raf Simons and adidas have a strong collaborative history, and two more models have arrived from their SS17 offerings. With subtle perforated branding on the upper and on the tongue, the Stan Smith keeps it classic in an all-white version, with only the tongue logo in black. Along with the Stan Smith, two luxe adilettes in black and black and cream are also available. Like the recently released Ozweego Bunny, the slides feature text prominently on the upper, “THIS SIDE UP” on the right and “HOLD FIRMLY” on the left.
White Mountaineering and adidas Originals again collaborate for two pairs of the understated Campus 80s model. The black and navy colorways feature pigskin nubuck uppers with subtle branding via diagonal leather striping under the the midfoot stripes and White Mountaineering logos on the tongue and footbed.
The adidas by Raf Simons SS17 collection continues strong with the Ozweego Bunny. The updated silhouette features neutral creams and whites draping the upper in a mix of leathers and textiles. Signature transparent silicone windows are seen throughout, with printed text on the collar and eyestay.
Japanese cult boutique kolor again collaborates with adidas, this time for two Response TR models. Both are more subdued than previous models, and the result mixes earth tones and bright hues in a stretch mesh upper and a flexible FITBAND for comfort while placing a mix of boost on the midsole and Continental TRAXION on the outsole.
Y3’s minimal Qasa model arrives in two colorways, black and royal blue. The black model features geometric patterns under the elastic straps. For the royal model, tonal blues dominate the upper perched on a tubular outsole.
