Packer & Adidas Team Up On The First-Ever Ultra4D Sneaker Collab

Nov 23, 2020

When adidas created the Ultra4D, it did so with the intention to usher in a new era for adaptive sneakers. The specimen’s Futurecraft 4D technology was lauded as a more substantial cushioning system for runners, utilizing a latticed construction that would “change the game” for athletic design. While that promise fell (subjectively) short, the Ultra4D was still a technically-pleasing shoe, helping it to remain in the spotlight. Now, adidas is partnering with New York’s Packer for the sneaker’s first-ever collaborative release.

While many might find it odd that adidas has chosen Packer as its first partner in the release of a collaborative Ultra4D, it was never too far outside of the realm of possibility. The outfit, which was established in Yonkers, New York, all the way back in 1907, has stood at the forefront of culturally-rooted footwear for over a century. These days, the brand specializes in the elegant refinement of modern sneakers, making the 4D a prime contender for bespoke recreation. As such, the Packer x adidas Consortium collaboration has resulted in a handsomely-perceived navy blue silhouette outfitted with an EVA heel clip, Nubuck toe guard, Primeknit/mesh upper, and subtle branding, making it a sight to behold. To round things out, the shoe’s 4D midsole — crafted using adidas’ Digital Light Synthesis technology — helps to reinforce your every step. Head to Packer’s website to pick up a pair for $250.
