J.Crew and Asics for Packer

Long before stores like Undefeated and Kith had sneaker fiends lined up around the block, there was Packer Shoes, a pioneering sneaker boutique that first opened in Yonkers, NY in 1907. To celebrate their 110th Anniversary, Packer has called upon J.Crew and Asics to create a special edition shoe to mark this huge milestone. 

The style is based on the ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III running shoe and is inspired by Packer's classic dress shoes. The limited edition sneakers will come in Oxblood Leather, White Buck, Navy Buck,  and Charcoal Suede. The shoes will also be sold alongside a special collection of New Era caps that are done up in menswear fabrics. 

The shoes will be available at the J.Crew's Liquor Store location in NY on September 28th and then will hit J.Crew's online shop and Packer stores on September 30th.
