Packer Shoes is one of my favorite sneaker spots for sure, generic and this last event is one of the reasons why.

In 2004 famously wore two different colors of his adidas T-Mac3 representing the east and the west in the All Star Game.

This year they got retroed, and non other than Tracy McGrady himself to celebrate at the store in Teaneck New Jersey. Fans both new and old came thru, waited patiently online to cope their own pairs…

I of course made sure to cope a pair for myself, which I got signed by the man T-Mac.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase…” (Martin Luther King, illness Jr.)

Often while watching NBA games whether live at an arena or at home on television, help besides getting the opportunity to watch some of your favorite players in action, one of the main attractions are the footwear each player is wearing. So last season when Iman (whose name means ‘faith’ or ‘leader‘) debuted this special player exclusive on the court against the Lakers at MSG, we immediately initiated the conversation with adidas of trying to bring this shoe into production for a retail release. You could say this project was brave leap of faith into unknown territory. The same braveness and faith Iman gave Knicks fans last season as they started their resurgence back into the NBA’s elite.

Though the Knicks lost Iman last April after suffering a torn ACL in the first game of the first round playoff match up versus the Miami Heat, faith was not lost. After being cleared for full contact practice yesterday, faith has definitely been restored.

To celebrate his return to the hardwood and paying homage to another man who has evoked hope and faith in many, we are proud to announce the release of the Packer Shoes x adidas Top Ten 2000 Iman Shumpert P.E.

Limited to 500 pairs world wide, the ’2WO INE’ Top Ten 2000 will be releasing in Teaneck after the Knick’s annual Martin Luther King Day game – January 21st @ 21:21 (9:21 pm EST) with Iman in-store and later that evening online @ PackerShoes.com.

Each pair is numerically numbered up to 500. Purchases will be limited to one (1) pair per customer.

Packers X DJ Neil Armstrong – ABA Americans / Much love to Jersey

Liner Notes :
New Jersey, arguably the most slept on state of our country. This mixtape, like the sneaker release is all about giving props to Packer shoes, and Jersey’s forgotten history.

The Team Now known as the Brooklyn Nets has moved around quite a bit. But before they were called the NETS, they were called the Americans in the American Basketball Association.
And the Americans Played in Teaneck New Jersey from 67 – 68.

Like the Americans, every artist on this cd has “roots” in jersey. Yes – even SugarHill Gang, one of the pioneer hip hop groups was originally from Englewood NJ. The Song ‘Beggin’ by Newark born Frankie Valli came out in 1967 when The Americans made their ABA debut.

Shouts to Packer Shoes and adidas for bringing this all together.
