November 9th marks the 25th anniversary of arguably the greatest Hip-Hop album ever released by a rap group, the highly-regarded rap classic Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by none other than Wu-Tang Clan. Many fans of the collective will be celebrating in their own way, but those living in New York City will be able to celebrate alongside Footaction with some really fly Wu Wear merch.
As the flyer above shows, Wu Wear — one of the the group’s many lucrative hustles outside of rap — is linking with the sportswear retailer for a three-day Footaction NY33 Pop Up Series. From Nov 8 – 10, the 125 W 33rd street location in the heart of Manhattan will host a bunch of festivities, including customization booths, embroidery, painting and a commemorative cap-off celebration that may see a few familiar guests in attendance. See below for a breakdown of the events:
