UPDATE: The Packer x adidas NMD_R1s dropped at Packer stores last week and promptly sold out. But you haven't missed out on securing a pair of your own just yet. The vintage-inspired NMDs will see a wider release at select Originals stockists including Solebox on November 19.
Packer have been entwined with the sportswear industry for more than 100 years, and are showcasing that legacy through this NMD colab. Heritage is actually more fitting of a theme for the NMD than most. The shoe itself references the lineage of adidas runners by taking cues from the Boston Super, Rising Star and the Micropacer – and repackages them for modern times. Packer Shoes have followed suit with the colourway of this NMD_R1 PK, referencing sporting history via the clothing styles of yesteryear.
The nomad has been dressed in the eclectic matte colours of vintage sportswear with pops of muted and mint, and a navy blue gradient that adorns the Primeknit upper. It may have come just after Halloween, but if you were dressing up as your favourite 70s Olympian – these would be the keystone of the fit.
This adidas NMD_R1 PK will be available on November 12 from Packer locations, and Packer online.
