Mike Packer of Packer Shoes Has Finally Joined Instagram

The man, the myth, the legend Mike Packer has joined Instagram after holding out for several years — and we can’t wait for the stories he’s going to tell.

A true OG of the industry, Mike Packer has collaborated with nearly every sneaker brand at one point or another. Now, he’s taking to Instagram to discuss the history and heritage of Packer Shoes.

Packer Shoes has been around since 1907, when it was originally named Packer Bros. — that’s before Yeezys, before Michael Jordan ever laced up a pair of Jordans, before Nike was even a thought, and before the Great Depression.

Yaron Weitzman wrote a fantastic piece about Packer last year called Mike Packer, the Jewish Sneaker King of Teaneck, N.J. — it is definitely worth the read.
