Packer Shoes and Reebok have already teamed up for some of the last year’s hottest collaboration projects, but for their latest endeavor, the two brought along another notable name in the sneaker world who has been no stranger to putting his signature touch on a pair of shoes. With an impressive list of sneaker collabs already under his belt, renowned artist, Stash, now brings his vision and trademark color scheme to the Reebok Pump Graphlite. As you can see, the shoe sports a variety of shades of blue and grey for that classic Stash feel, but there’s more than meets the eye with these kicks thanks to some carefully considered material choices. The Stash x Packer x Reebok Pump Graphlite sports a combination of premium suede and ballistic nylon, with hits of 3M and a Reebok Play Dry membrane treatment to make the shoe water repellent as well. In addition to the materials, added touches come by way of Packer/Stash embroidery on the heels, as well as special insoles and a numbered tag inside each shoe.
The Pump Graphlites will be limited to only 289 pairs – 189 for the street address of the original Packer store in Yonkers, plus 100 to celebrate over a century in the shoe business. The shoe will release during a special in-store event on Thursday, March 31st at Packer Shoes in Teaneck, NJ, in addition to the Packer online store. Check out some detailed pics of the shoe after the jump and stay tuned for specifics on the launch celebration coming soon.
