UPDATE: We now have word, courtesy of Packer, that this collaborative Reebok Aztrek will release Friday, March 15, at 12 p.m. EST in-store at both Packer locations and online at PackerShoes.com. They will be priced at $115 USD with sizes ranging from 7-to-13.
Since the Aztrek’s well-timed reissue last year, the style has been sought after for its chunky silhouette that pays homage to quintessential ’90s style, while still remaining relevant through updated color ways and materials. Building on that, the Reebok Packer Aztrek features tones of grey and a clean-lined suede overlay.
Packer‘s neutral take on the sneaker is an about face from previous collaborations: a bold, Nintendo 64-inspired iteration by BILLY’S dropped last year, featuring a bright primary color story. Model Gigi Hadid’s take on the Aztrek for her Reebok collection included pops of neon.
The more muted version by Packer will be available this Friday and is listed at ¥13,000 JPY (approximately $116 USD). This is just one of Reebok’s forthcoming partnerships — JJJJound recently teased a collaboration with the brand.

The Reebok Aztrek by Packer is an exercise in subtle simplicity — applying the shoe with a greyscale wash that allows the lines and shapes of the design to come to life through tones and textures. Contrasting shades of grey premium suede and pigskin come together with OG mesh underlays and reflective 3M accents to present the Aztrek through an alternate aesthetic lens. Available 12 Noon EST Friday, March 15th, in-store at both Packer locations and online at packershoes.com. ($115/mens size 7-13)
