After being with Reebok for several years and releasing collaborations on silhouettes like the Classic Leather, Ventilator and Club C, Kendrick Lamar recently joined Team Swoosh and people were already waiting impatiently to see what he’s cooking up with Nike. As is known, the Compton rapper is a huge fan of the Nike Cortez, which also is one of west coast hip hop’s favorite models and has been rocked by other rap legends from the CPT like Eazy E. Now Kendrick took to Instagram for a first look at his very own collab on the shoe which turned 45 years old this year.
Dressed in a classic color scheme of red and white, the shoe features black laces and a lace holder which reads the words “Don’t Trip”. The fore foot also features some Chinese symbols which are interpreted as nod to the rapper’s “Kung Fu Kenny” alter ego which he introduced on this year’s standout album “DAMN.“.
