Packer Shoes x Raekwon x Diadora N.9000 “Purple Tape” Lookbook
After getting a first look at the sneakers earlier this month, Packer Shoes highlights the upcoming, special edition sneaker celebrating the 20th anniversary of Raekwon's debut album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..., once again.
Packer and Raekwon teamed up with Diadora for a "Purple Tape"-inspired version of their N.9000 model, which is featured in this new lookbook.
The tonal purple sneaker is done up in premium suede and leather, and features co-branding on the tongue as well as "1995" to commemorate the project's release date. Along with the shoe, the set features two black and purple versions of the New York Yankees New Era 59FIFTY, a tee and an Italian-made track jacket.
The "Purple Tape" drops August 20 at SOBs in New York City from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT. The first 95 customers (who are 21 and older) to purchase the "Purple Tape" N.9000 will receive free tickets to that night's Raekwon show at the venue -- the final stop on the rapper’s 20th anniversary tour.
Individual tickets for the show are still available online.
