Packer Shoes and adidas have come up with some of the best collaborations the sneaker community has ever seen, and their latest project is certainly no different. Taking on the iconic ZX 9000, the shoe is a nod to New Jersey, more specifically, the state’s official flower – the Meadow Violet.
Painted in a beautiful earthy palette, the buttery smooth suede and mesh construction seems to represent soil, while bold purple hits at the lateral and medial panels, tongue, and heel, symbolise the flower itself, resulting in a subtle yet striking contrast that’s perfect for the autumn and winter months.
For an additional pop of colour, the heel cage is dipped in a forest green hue, keep with New Jersey’s nickname, Garden State. Round it all off is a floral-printed insole that’s also emblazoned with Packer x adidas co-branding, finalising the collaborative look.
If, like all of us, you want the Packer x adidas Consortium ZX 9000 ‘Meadow Violet’ in your collection, it’s available now over at Packer’s webstore. A wider release is scheduled for the coming months, so make sure you keep it locked at @thesolesupplier and @thesolerestocks over on Twitter and we’ll let you know as soon as they launch!
