The 80s film 'Coming to America' is a classic comedy most adored by native New Yorkers. The film captured the essence of the Big Apple and now Packer Shoes has teamed up with Starter to create a collection that honors the iconic film and the lively city.

Starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, Coming to America features comical dialogue as well as memorable street style. One of the most iconic looks in the film showcase Murphy and Hall decked out in tourist apparel including New York Jets and Mets starter jackets. Packer Shoes and Starter have recreated the character's tourist experience by re-releasing the iconic starter jackets.

To display the newly released jackets, Packer Shoes launched a lookbook starring New York natives Action Bronson and Meyhem Lauren role playing as Coming to America's main characters.
