Extra Butter has long been known for their affinity for cinema and have never been shy about embracing the theme, whether it’s the decorative visual motifs of their two storefront locations or the various in-house design projects they’ve produced over the years. Now, parallel to their reverence for the art of film making, the EB crew is out to flex their own creative prowess and direct some cinematic visions of their own.

Back in January, Packer Shoes kicked off the ten year anniversary of their Teaneck, NJ store with the release of their first ever ASICS collaboration. Rather than taking the safe route and opting for one of the brand’s more established silhouettes, Packer chose to explore new ground by giving the newly re-introduced Gel-Kayano Trainer its first collaborative whirl with the “All Roads Lead to Teaneck” concept – a theme that paid tribute to the shop’s loyal customers and their decade strong eagerness to travel from all over to make their way to the store.

In every major sport, the star players will always attract the attention of corporate heavyweights looking to align their product with popular and marketable athletes. Footwear is no doubt a common denominator among all the sports and the big name brands have been scrambling to sign the big name players for decades now. Tennis and basketball were the industry pioneers when it came to introducing the concept of the signature shoe, but in the ’80s the spectrum broadened significantly into other sports with football emerging as one of the prime targets for market expansion.

There once was a time when it was just about completely unheard of for independent skate shoe brands like Etnies, DC, and Duffs to be on the same wall as Air Jordans and running shoes, and there was little common ground to justify those two worlds ever crossing paths. There were definitely early basketball models from Nike, adidas, and Puma that caught on with ’80s skaters, but on the retail end, it was still two drastically different worlds.

From Superman, Diesel, and Shaq Fu to the Big Aristotle, Banana, or Baryshnikov, over the course of Shaquille O’Neal’s legendary basketball career, he has gone by more different names than you could ever hope to count. And while it didn’t exactly originate on the basketball court, one of the most fondly-remembered of them all came from Shaq’s role playing the character, Neon Boudreaux, in the 1994 movie, Blue Chips. The film may not have brought home any Oscar hardware for the cast and crew, but as far as b-ball movies are concerned, it has gone on to become a certified classic.

It’s pretty evident that the legacy of ASICS as a brand will be best remembered for their contributions to the running shoe category, but there was once a time when they were a well-respected name in the basketball world as well. In fact, that’s where the company got its start back in 1949 when founder, Kihachiro Onitsuka, began manufacturing basketball sneakers out of his living room. Since then, the brand has branched out and excelled in a number of different sports and footwear categories, but basketball will always remain an important part of their history.

When it comes to sports, perfection is an elusive prize, and whether you achieve it or not, it’s that undying pursuit of perfection that drives players to become truly great. You can make the argument that Kobe Bryant has come as close to mastering the game of basketball as anyone who’s ever played it. Years of hard work, determination, and intense focus have resulted in a legendary on-court run highlighted by five NBA Championships, two Olympic gold medals, and league MVP honors, and despite all that success, Kobe is still as hungry as ever. Although injuries have derailed the better part of the last two seasons, knowing how hard he’s ready and willing to push himself towards greatness, you can never count Kobe out.
