The collabos and inline releases that Diadora has been putting out lately aren’t just a comeback, but a statement! The Italian brand has been showing how good they are at what they have been doing for decades: manufacturing shoes at a high quality without forgetting the style component! Enter the Packer x Raekwon x Diadora N.9000 “Purple Tape”.
The N.9000 has been this year’s flagship model. And the choice was absolutely right! The retro runner is sleek without yelling performance. It’s stylish without losing wearability. It’s just one of the best picks a sneaker aficionado could be in lately. The collaboration with Raekwon and Packer celebrates the hip hop legend’s classic “Purple Tape” in the best way possible – with a dope-looking classic made in Italy. The fact that Diadora is able to make an all-purple shoe without it looking corny says a lot about the brand’s designers. I’m impressed!
Wu-Tang is for the children!
