After dropping the first part of their “Community Linx” collection, Raekwon, Diadora, and Foot Locker continue their collaborative partnership and this time paying homage to the City of Brotherly Love.
Community Linx is a collaborative franchise series allowing Raekwon to design product capsules built with and for local communities. Each capsule provides direct aid to their community by providing tools, resources, and a wealth of knowledge to local, up-and-coming musicians.
“This is an empowering program and allows young artists to be embraced by some of the legends,” said Raekwon. “Shoutout Foot Locker, Champs Sports, and Diadora for helping bring my vision to life. We’re now in Philly with it on the heels of a successful NYC launch, and I’m excited to see what the city offers. There’s so much talent here, and we want to give people the opportunity to build and grow for the culture.”
The sneaker features a maroon upper made up of mesh, leather, and suede with black and grey accents throughout. The Diadora logo is seen on the quarter panels in black with 3M reflective trim with the heel featuring 3M as well with Raekwon’s branding on the right heel and Diadora’s on the left. Lastly, a white midsole and black outsole finish off the sneaker.
The Raekwon x Diadora N9002 “Philly” is set to drop exclusively at Foot Locker and Champs Sports on April 21st, retailing for $120. Check out the official photos below and for all the latest drop dates, head over to our Sneaker Release Dates page.
