One of the East Coast's longest-running footwear shops will mark a milestone with the help of Asics and J.Crew. Packer Shoes, which opened in Yonkers, New York, in 1907 and exists in its current form in Teaneck, New Jersey, will release the quartet of Gel Lyte 3 styles seen here for its 110th anniversary.
The sneakers will be available first at the J.Crew Liquor Store (located at 235 W Broadway in New York City) on Thursday, Sept. 28, in the oxblood and white colorways. The Liquor Store will release the navy and charcoal colorways on Friday, Sept. 29. After that, all four will release again alongside matching New Era caps at noon on Saturday via Packer Shoes locations in store and online. J.Crew will also release pairs again on Saturday via its San Francisco Centre, The Grove, Red Church, On Lan, and online stores.
The Packer Shoes x J.Crew x Asics Gel Lyte 3s retail for $160 each.
These Gel Lyte 3s are a continuation of Packer Shoes' "Dirty Buck" Gel Lyte 3 from 2015, and find their inspiration in the sort of dress shoes that the store would have sold en masse in its previous incarnations.
