Sneakers: Packer x Raekwon x Diadora N.9000 ‘Purple Tape’ Kicks

Packer 4

Raekwon is teaming with Packer Shoes and Diadora to unveils the new N. 9000 ‘Purple Tape’ Sneakers. The kicks pay homage to Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album which is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year. It was only right to combine efforts and apply it to a staple shoe from one of the shared-favorite brands of both Rae and Packer over the years with the made in Italy Packer x Raekwon x Diadora N.9000 ‘Purple Tape’ kicks. We can expect the kicks to launch next Thursday, August 20th, exclusively at S.O.B.’s in NYC with a special added last tour date concert performance by Raekwon later that evening. Stay tuned to PackerShoes.com and SOBs.com for additional release and show details.

‘Featuring a luxurious premium suede and mesh construction dipped in multiple purple pantones, the “Purple Tape” N.9000 brings together all of the callouts featured on the original cassette tape. The co-branded Packer x Raekwon x Diadora tongue label is direct drawback to the “Parental Advisory” tag featured on the explicit version of OB4CL with “1995” side embroidery paying homage to the release year of the album. Additional features include “side 1” & “side 2” embroidery rear of both shoes and corresponding album track listing both footbeds, clear purple tinted rubber outsoles, metallic silver midsole and 4 shoe lace options sure to make the tape “pop”.’
