Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez Officially RevealedRelease: 26 January 2018
There have been a few hints, leaks and peeks, and for a while we’ve been aware that a Cortez was cookin'. Finally the shoe has been confirmed, the official flicks are out and it leaves us with one thing to say: damn. After seeing Kung Fu Kenny rocking a wild pair of black and red ‘Don’t Trip’ Cortez, we have to admit that the embroidered white version set to release later this month is somewhat of a disappointment.
Fair dues, as a standalone sneaker, it’s pretty fresh. The primo gained leather upper and contrasting red stitching epitomes cleanliness. The classic Cortez has been treated with the dignity of an elderly sneaker; I guess we were hoping Kendrick would shake things up a little. Nevertheless, this won’t be the last we see from the pair, fingers crossed.
