Tomorrow Sep 12 sees the Euro drop of the Diadora N9000 x Raekwon x Packer Shoes ‘Purple Tape’ and unless you won one of the store raffles or you’ve been camping most of this week it’s gonna pretty difficult to cop these purple beauties tomorrow.
In celebration of founder Wu-Tang member Raekwon’s iconic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx album that had a limited purple cassette tape run that if you can find one now it will cost you more than these kicks.
But back to these amazing purple kicks – with the Made in Italy stamp of quality, the icy outsole, that quality suede upper, those track-listed insoles, a bunch of laces, special anniversary box, that parental advisory tongue tag and these are thus far the drop and cop of the year for us.
And thanks to our crew in NYC from The Campout, and Mr. Briggs we were able to secure a pair, and signed shoe and boxes at that. We were invited along with The King of Trainers for a very special photo shoot with the team from Sneakers PR. So let’s see if they’re as hard to get a hold of as the ones in the pic!
See below for a very small list of stockists and maybe it’s not too late…
