Where You Can Cop This Unarchived Classic

The Ellesse Piazza OG debuted in the ’80s but it’s taken its sweet time to come back.

Why? It had to be done right and by the right people.

Teaming up with Mike Packer who sold the shoes in the original Packer store in Yonkers, the premium Italian heritage is resurrected after decades in the vault.

Following over a year of working with Ellesse and flying out to Italy to ensure Mike Packer’s “white whale” of a sneaker returned in true form, the Ellesse Piazza OG is available now exclusively at Packer for $120.

In NYC? They’ve got a themed pop-up shop that you can stop by with the hours and location listed below to cop this archival classic.
