Packer Shoes have turned to their New Jersey roots for their latest colab with New Balance. This 580 'Pine Barrens' was inspired by the Jersey Devil, a state-specifice boogie monster creature. Rumoured to be the thirteenth son of the devil and some 17th Century bad gal, the monster apparently terrorised the pine barrens that worked the forest. Ballistic mesh and premium suede is covered with a mixture of earthy tones and devil-inspired colours, and a forrest graphic adorns the tongue label.
Only 500 pairs of the Packer x New Balance 580 'Pine Barrens' are available worldwide. The shoe will be released on Friday March 25 at both Packer locations, and their online store.
