It’s no coincidence that Nike has had so many athlete endorsers whose popularity and selling power have transcended their respective eras.

Even before BAIT opened the doors of its first retail location back in the Summer of 2012, we had already caught wind of their Olympics-inspired ASICS “Rings Pack”. The ambitious five-shoe collection not only made the statement that BAIT would be hitting the ground running when it came to collaborative projects, but also cemented a strong relationship with ASICS that has since gone on to produce other co-branded fruits like last year’s “Phantom Lagoons” Gel Saga and most recently, an intriguing conceptual three-pack of Gel Lyte IIIs.

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.
