Released during the Fall of 1993, Wu-Tang Clan‘s debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, helped re-establish the prominence of East Coast Hip-Hop scene and tapered the influence of gangsta rap from the West Coast. In commemorating the album’s 20th anniversary and its influences on street culture, especially that of New York, DC Shoes decided to pair with the remaining members of Wu-Tang Clan in creating a celebratory collection. Inspired by the original album art, the limited edition pack includes a New Era cap, a pea coat, and leather boots, all with Wu-Tang’s signature color of black and gold accents. The collection also includes a vinyl record and a short film Streets & Boards & Bees & Swords, a documentary that highlights the similarities between the albums and skateboard culture. All is set to launch tomorrow, November 14, through DC Shoes and Wu-Tang Clan’s online stores.
Release Date: November 14, 2013 (Tomorrow!)
