PRO-Keds has been in the sneaker game for decades, gaining prominence in NYC as the hip-hop/b-boy head’s sneaker brand of choice. Things have changed over the years for the brand and the surrounding sneaker game, but amidst the hype and an outpour of today’s new releases, a tried and true classic like the 69er Lo will always be relevant. The recent ‘Backyard BBQ‘ powered by the three-way collaboration between PRO-Keds, notable sneaker fiend Biz Markie and longstanding retailer Packer Shoes, was a celebration of the good old days, bringing back some old-school flavor to a mostly new-school crowd. If you haven’t picked up one of the 750 limited-edition pairs, head to Packer Shoes to cop yours, and check out the video recap after the jump to see what went down at the BBQ.
