As a classic west coast shoe, the Cortez is the perfect fit for Compton native Kendrick Lamar. But after several street-ready takes on the silhouette, the rapper now presents a cozy version of the sneaker. The Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez Kenny IV “House Shoes” are the perfect piece of footwear for a lazy sunday on the couch.
Made with a convenient slip-on construction, the shoe takes inspirations from traditional house shoes that both OGs and average Joes can get behind. A quilted insole provides a fit unmatched by any previous Cortez, while the the soft nylon upper ensures a lightweight wearing comfort. A heel pull tab similar to that on Nike’s Air Moc allows you to adjust the Kenny IV’s to your feet.
Orange details spice up the white and navy blue design of the shoe, with the words “HOUSE SHOES” written across a strap on the padded tongue. Check out some detailed pics of Kendrick’s latest Nike collab below.
