Collaborations don’t get more official than this. Jersey-based shop Packer Shoes has teamed up with FILA and the International Tennis Hall of Fame for a limited edition two-pack launching during the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Newport.
The ITHF’s first collaboration consists of the Original Tennis and T-1 Mid, two models that reflect FILA’s heritage in the sport. Off-White suede, a perforated quarter, a terry lining and gum sole highlight the Original Tennis, while the T-1 Mid is designed with an all-over Sycamore green suede upper. Both shoes will come with a rubberized 2D hang tag and custom pull-drawer packaging.
The Original Tennis and T-1 Mid both retail for $110 at packershoes.com, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to junior programs at the ITHF.
