In 1994 Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon released his debut solo album, “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.” The album was a hit, and released at number 4 on the Billboard Top 200. Packer shoes has teamed up with Diadora and Raekwon to commemorate this monumental album with a Collaborative design of the N.9000. The Colorway is derived from the original cassette cover, yes I said Cassette. You will notice an embroidered 1 and 2 on the heel of the shoes that reference Side 1 and Side 2 of the tape. The album references are extremely detailed on this release, make sure to check out the pics below and try to find everything.
The Packer Shoes x Diadora x Raekwon “Purple Tape” drops August 20th exclusively at S.O.B.’s in New York City in conjunction with a special show by Raekwon.
