Brand: Kendrick Lamar x Nike
Key Features: The upper is constructed using a mixture of white leather and red mesh that sits atop a white and black serrated foam midsole. A black pull tab runs the length of the laces, featuring “Don’t Trip” detailing that extends through the middle of the tongue. A white, embroidered Chinese translation of ‘DAMN’ is present on the forefoot.
Release Date: Rumored to drop NBA All-Star Weekend
Price: Rumored at $100
Editor’s Notes: Kendrick Lamar’s second Nike Cortez follows in the footsteps of his DAMN kicks, which dropped late last month. This time, however, the Kung Fu Kenny iteration is done up primarily using red and featuring more details.
First spotted on foot in late 2017, we have our first look at detailed images thanks to Sneaker News. Rumored to be dropping at NBA All-Star Weekend in K-DOT’s hometown of Los Angeles, this rendition is even better than the first thanks to its eye-catching detailing.
