Worn by Raekwon in Wu-Tang Clan's 'Can It All Be So Simple' video, Polo's Snow Beach pullover has been one of the most revered pieces of hip hop fashion for more than two decades. In recent years, it's experienced somewhat of a resurgence after being exposed to a brand new generation. Now, it appears that Packer Shoes has teamed up with producer Just Blaze and Saucony to pay homage to the iconic jacket.
Previewed in the teaser shot below is a Saucony runner decked out in the Snow Beach scheme of navy, gold and red, along with special Snow Beach-themed packaging. The silhouette hasn't been announced, but it could be the Grid 9000 based on the photo.
With the teaser, Packer added the caption, "#LoHead season is upon us." Just Blaze, who famously flourished during Pologate, said, "I'm cookin up some marvelous sh** with @packershoes and @sauconyoriginals. #LoHead."
