Packer stirred up some turn-of-the-century nostalgia with their recent Reebok Answer 4 “Ultramarine” collaboration, a not-so-subtle yet unofficial nod to the Prada Americas Cup luxury sneaker. The redesign executed by Victor Kan and Aaron Kr. of Packer moves the original Answer 4 silhouette closer to the Prada model, but subtle enough to show the clear resemblance of the two rather unconnected silhouettes.
According to photos shared by Kan, a sequel appears to be in the works as their reworked Answer 4 is rebuilt with buttery white leather and silver mesh, a colorway also seen in the Italian brand’s most recognizable sneaker to date. Much like the first drop, this Packer x Reebok Answer 4 features the perfect droplets of red on the rubber zipper, the logo on the sole, and – although not pictured – the exposed cushion underneath. Co-branded insoles and alternate lacing is likely included as well.
Stay tuned for official release details; these will likely retail at $180 and could be exclusive to Packer.
