these were made in honor of one of my favorite albums of all time, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Back in the day before CD's had taken over this album existedon a purple tape and that always stuck with me. I finally had the time to make these, but I've had the idea for quite some time.
They feature a translucent purple sole, transparent side panels(with a tape graphic), and transparent swooshes. They also have graphics of the lyrics to someof my favorite songs with actual cassette tape strewn throughout the shoe.

but because of your inspiration, and the lyrics printed
Verbal Intercourse was the +@$*.

that woulda been too "easy" (theme-wise).....album artwork has been done before so I wanted to go a different way
