Kendrick Lamar X Nike Cortez 1

Kendrick Lamar Reveals Cortez Colab

Date: December 20 2017

After signing to Nike back in August, Kung Fu Kenny has finally landed some kicks. Kendrick Lamar shared his pair of tricked-out Cortez on his socials and Nike Boys are abuzz.

Lamar needed only a few well-placed additions to transform the sneaker into his own creation. Most impactful is the nylon running down the lace system, which advices that we ‘Don’t Trip.’ Japanese characters appear again on the medial side and the red uppers are built from fine mesh. Kendrick’s lacing technique is also noteworthy; it adds a special touch to the shoe and we’ll definitely be replicating when we get our hands on a pair. As for when that will be, we’ll let you know as soon as Kenny announces a release.
