Hip-hop legend Raekwon, Diadora, and Foot Locker, Inc. have returned to deliver a third “Community Linx” release – the Diadora N9002 Detroit.
Community Linx is a collaborative franchise series that allows Raekwon to design product capsules built with and for local communities. Today’s Detroit release specifically focuses on the intersection of rap and fashion in the city. This capsule is launched with a local event that provides tools, resources, and a wealth of knowledge to local up-and-coming stylists looking to expand their portfolios.
The Diadora N9002 Detroit features a black colorway with a pop of gold, a leather upper, a rubber outsole for increased durability and traction, and Raekwon’s signature on the heel. The newest drop is available in men’s sizes exclusively sold at Foot Locker and Champs Sports beginning today, June 23rd for $120. The N9002 is an exclusive model for Foot Locker and Champs. If in Detroit, head to Foot Locker Detroit’s 17755 East Eight Mile Road Harper Woods, MI 48225 to purchase.
The Community Linx program kicked off earlier this year with an NYC-inspired Diadora N9002 release paired with an invite-only, four-week beat-making course that brought Raekwon and guest judge, Dave East together with 16 up-and-coming NYC artists through mentorship. The program has also made stops in Philly where local artists participated in an invite-only, four-round performance judged by Raekwon, Bri Steves, and Beanie Sigel which resulted in one lucky winner receiving a personal session with Raekwon. Additional Community Linx launches representing Chicago, Los Angeles, and Houston will roll out through the remainder of the summer.
