Yesterday, Packer Shoes played host to one of the most limited sneaker releases in recent memory – the twelve-pair release of the Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond The Gold’ John Wall PE. Packaged in a black suitcase alongside a pair of shades and a Flud watch, the ‘Beyond The Gold’ PE serves as one of the brightest under-the-radar drops of the year, although the line-up that formed at noon on Wednesday says that these were very much zeroed in on by vigilant sneaker hunters. The crowd wasn’t limited to the NJ area either; while the first package went to one NYC resident, lucky #8, which also came with tickets to tonight’s Knicks game as well as a meet-and-greet with John Wall, went to Sebastian Cardaval, who traveled all the way from San Diego, CA.
The twelve pairs were gone fast, but Reebok and Packer Shoes didn’t allow the rest of the attendees to go empty handed, as they also released a limited number of other PE colorways of the Zig Encore like the Kentucky PE, a Red/White PE, and the Purple/Yellow Word of God Christian Academy PE. Reebok also dropped some samples, like a sick South Beach-esque pair in Wall’s size 13 that went to the unlucky 13th person in line (not so unlucky now, huh?). We’ve got a nice photo recap of the Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond The Gold’ John Wall PE release below, so check it out if you couldn’t be there!
