The Raekwon x Packer Shoes x Diadora N.9000 "Purple Tape" already has a sequel, seen here on-feet for the Wu-Tang Clan rapper here.

The sneaker was worn by Raekwon during the "Purple Tape" release party in NYC, and is made in a color scheme to match the album artwork from his classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.... There's a caveat on this one though – it's a friends and family affair only for now, and no retail release is planned.

While that might upset Wu diehards, they can cheer up knowing there's another chance to pick up the Raekwon x Packer x Diadora "Purple Tape" on the horizon. This weekend, a wider release is going down, with a full retailer list available now via Packer.
