Packer Shoes is back with their latest exclusive drop.

This time the New Jersey-based retailer dug deeper into the New Balance vault. The end result? The long-awaited debut of this 'Unreleased PE' edition of the New Balance P740. Originally worn by James Worthy in the 1980s, this white and purple colorway was made exclusively for him, while he played for the Los Angeles Lakers and was never released to the public. Nearly three decades later, they are now officially set to drop. Identical to the original PE edition, this pair features a white-based leather upper with purple accents.

The 'Unreleased PE' New Balance P740 hits packershoes.com as well as Packer Shoes in-store location in Teaneck, New Jersey on Saturday, August 16 in limited fashion.
