PRO-Keds link up with hip-hop heavyweight Biz Markie on a special set of the brand’s iconic 69er low. Done up in a premium leather motif, the shoes come in both olive green and black colorways (limited to 300 each), with an additional white joint made exclusive to Packer Shoes (limited to 150). Additionally, the kicks feature a gold stamp on the tongue showing off Biz’s mug and special insoles. These will see an official launch this Sunday, June 26 at Packer Shoes during the store’s joint Backyard BBQ with PRO-Keds. Only customers who purchase the shoes (in-store and online) will be able to attend the exclusive event which will see Biz perform live with special guests. All three colorways will be available for purchase in-store tomorrow and online Wednesday. Out of state orders will be shipped as usual. Price is set at $90 USD, with each shoe accompanied by a 1 GB BIZ USB keychain and commemorative Packer Shoes x Biz Markie T-shirt.
