In 1987, the Hangtime Hi was released as Saucony's flagship basketball sneaker. One of the first hoop shoes to incorporate snakeskin detailing, the Hangtime crossed over into streetwear culture in the late 80 and early 90s. When approached with the opportunity to add their personal touch to the classic silhouette, Teaneck-based boutique Packer Shoes drew inspiration from the model's timeless appeal.
The 'Woodland Snake' Hangtime Hi was constructed using full-grain woodland camp leather with brown snakeskin accents. Other features include Packer-branded leather tongue tabs and multiple lace options.
Look for this collaboration to release in-store and online next Friday, November 22, along with a limited edition Faded Royalty x Packer Headwear Capsule Collection. More details coming next week.
