Packer Shoes is getting in on the Asics Gel Lyte III's 25th anniversary celebration with this collaborative take on the shoe, dubbed the "Dirty Buck."

The sneaker is inspired by a brown shoe style that was popular during Packer's days in Yonkers–remember that the lion's share of the store's 108 years in the game took place there rather than in Teaneck. The pair bridges the gap between that era and the present iteration of Packer Shoes as a more sneaker-oriented spot. In a year set to be busy with GL3 collabs, this design sets itself apart with bits of branding never seen before on the shoe, like the leather patch on the tongue.

The Packer Shoes x Asics Gel Lyte III "Dirty Buck" release date is March 7, and the shoes will hit in-store only at Packer Shoes.
