New Balance’s recently introduced X-90 Recon blends classic design elements from a variety of 99X Series models to create a new shoe that feels right at home sitting alongside the original catalog. Packer expands that formula a few steps further, outfitting the silhouette with iconic color and material references pulled from nine different archive staples.
Through thoughtful execution of suedes, meshes and synthetics, New Balance has always been known for their masterful ability to bring colorways together in nuanced explorations of greys and blues — and in countless cases, a combination of the two. The Packer X-90 Recon poses the idea: what would happen if you took all these blues and greys — from deep navy to sky blues and teals, airy greys to muddy greys and murky charcoals — and arranged them all together in one harmonious design?
Now, what if you took the numerical New Balance model names from the four shoes that went into the X-90 design and the nine shoes that inspired the colors and materials and multiplied them all together? You would have a number so large, we’ve shortened it to simply, the “Infinity Edition”.
The Packer x New Balance X-90 Recon “Infinity Edition” ($130) releases Saturday, October 20th at 12 noon EST in-store at both locations and online at PackerShoes.com (sizes 7-13).
Worldwide exclusive, available only at Packer.
