Platinum-plague certified super producer, Just Blaze, is not new to the sneaker game. A world renowned 'lo head, and previous collaborator with both Packer Shoes and Saucony, the DJ has unveiled his latest effort for the brands, aptly dubbed the 'Casino' collection. Recruited by his native state's sneaker boutique, New Jersey's Packer Shoes, Blaze puts his soulful stamp atop a pair of Saucony's running silhouette, the Grid SD. Inspired by a rare Polo button down and the classic roulette tables found within nearly every gambling house, the kicks arrive in a mostly red upper with sharp green contrasts reminiscent of the felt topped tables, and gold highlights. Tight detailing like the numbers 00 and 36 tag the heel of the sneakers, and a special white dot on the left shoe represents the roulette ball. Finally a pair of kicks that gamblers worldwide would appreciate. As part of an entire collection, the sneakers also come with a tote bag, a bucket hat, a tee shirt, a special pair of dice, and a custom set of playing cards. Packer is hosting a special pop up shop in NYC's Lower East Side, at Wallplay Space on October 16.
