Packer Shoes x Dominique Wilkins x Reebok PUMP 20th | Event Recap

Basketball and sneaker fans camped out for almost 24 hours in anticipation of the release of Packer Shoes’   version of the Pump20. Unlike many of the other versions of the Pump20 that were hand-crafted by retailers across the world, the Packer model is an homage to the heritage of the game and the man who inspired the design–Domique Wilkins. Mr. Wilkins was on hand to sign sneakers, boxes, and posters for the lucky 31 people who were able to get a pair. Packer also released 29 pairs of the original colorways of the pump in black and white and white and blue.

To coincide with the release of the sneaker the 5th Platoon’s own DJ Vinroc released a mixtape of classic hip-hop fused with commentary and highlights of The Human Highlight Film. Those who bought a sneaker had the fortune of getting a free copy of the mixtape, a limited run t-shirt that was also individually numbered, Packer x Reebok hangtags, stickers, and a huge poster of Dominique. Freshness had the fortune of getting a few minutes to speak with the man of the evening, so stick with us to see that interview very soon.
