Affiliation: Packer Shoes
Packer Shoes is one of the few boutiques that has the opportunity to collaborate with nearly any footwear manufacturer and that can be credited to Mike Packer and his century-long history in the game. Not only does Mike deserve credit for the store itself, but also for facilitating the return of Patrick Ewing and Ewing Athletics to the sneaker world. When companies are looking for a voice from an independent retailer, they call Mike.
