Packer Are Dropping Another Violet-Inspired adidas ColabRelease: 12 October 2019
After honouring New Jersey's state flower and 'its tremendous ability to thrive amongst all the madness' with a ZX 9000 release, Packer Shoes and adidas are back with another violet-inspired Consortium collaboration.
This latest drop sees the two cooking up a 'Mega Violet' edition of the new ZX Torsion, which is a contemporary and celebratory nod to thirty years of adi's Torsion tech. As Packer put it, the colab 'tells the story of the meadow violet’s transformation from a proud symbol of nature's beauty to a corrupted byproduct of its environment.' The resulting design sees the original 'Meadow Violet' colour palette 'polluted' with darker, muddier tones across pigskin, hairy suede, and nubuck construction. Purple accents remain intact, naturally, and appear on the stripes and outsole to go along with plum-coloured mesh.
The 'Mega Violet' will be available for $150 both in store and online come Saturday, October 12 at 12PM EDT.

For the second phase of Packer's collaborative ZX capsule with #adidasconsortium, the focus remains on our surrounding environment, and, more specifically, how it can affect us. • The Packer x adidas Consortium ZX Torsion “Mega Violet” tells the story of the meadow violet’s transformation from a proud symbol of nature's beauty to a corrupted byproduct of its environment. While the gradient purple stripes remain the same from the first shoe to the second, the color palette surrounding them becomes polluted with dark, muddy tones that effectively mutate its identity from something pure and natural to something twisted and aggressive. • The Packer x adidas Consortium ZX Torsion “Mega Violet” ($150) will release this Saturday, October 12th, at 12 noon EST in-store at both locations and online at PackerShoes.com.
