By the end of last year, Kendrick Lamar made waves by leaking a fresh on-feet look at his collaborative effort with none other than Nike. Dubbed the “Kenny“, the Compton rapper showed off a red-and-white-version of the west coast classic Cortez which was equipped with a lace holder and featured Chinese lettering. But that colorway seems to be postponed for now, as Kendrick rocked out at the college football National Championship halftime show in another new pair.
This premium leather upper on this Cortez is kept in crisp white but comes with a twist: both the side Swoosh and the Nike branding on the tongue label have been replaced by “DAMN.” letterings to reference Kung-Fu Kenny’s 2017 standout album of the same name.
