A Grand Slam is always a good excuse for a special sneaker release, and the crew at Packer are celebrating the latest in style. To commemorate the 2018 US Open, Packer bring us a two-shoe Diadora colab influenced by the legendary runners and tennis shoes of the early 90s. The colab, dubbed the 'ON/OFF' Collection, encompasses sublime period-correct make-ups of the N9002 and Rebound Ace, made under the theme of on- and off-court wear.,
The Rebound Ace — the 'ON' component of the collection — draws inspiration from Diadora's own US Open kits from 1991 and has been assembled beautifully in Italy from a combination of kangaroo leather, tumbled leather and mesh. The collection's 'OFF' entry — the N9002 — embraces the same Italian construction with a white, blue and fluro orange colour combo. This deliciously vintage-inspired runner features a combination of premium leathers, suedes and mesh, as well as hits of 3M for pop. Both come finished with custom heel loops, lace dubraes, and tongue logo branding.
You better hurry if you want to cop these retro-styled beauties. The Packer x Diadora 'ON/OFF' Collection has just gone on sale at Packer's Jersey City retail location and through the Packer webshop. Available while stocks last!
