Whenever Kendrick Lamar is involved in something, it is a sure fire that it will sell. Now, following up on his recent collaboration with Nike – namely, the Cortez Kenny III and Cortez Kenny IV “House Shoe” – the Damn rapper is boasting new kicks. In a since-deleted post, we now have a closer look at the Kendrick Lamar x Nike React Element 55, but don’t worry, there is still photographic evidence.
Reposted by @freshnessmag, the 32-year-old musician is seen slouching in his usual, effortless swagger, in an oversized plaid jacket and bucket hat while he sports the sneakers in question. In black-and-white, it still leaves much to the imagination however, leak account @py_rates_ has recently unveiled a better image of the sneakers.
Rumoured to drop worldwide on November 5 for $150 USD, the sneakers are donned in the suspected black and white colourway and the silhouette is dressed in contrasting white lateral and patterned medial panels. Elsewhere, small swoosh branding is found emblazoned around the toes and the sneakers are finished off with a drilled React sole unit and contrast rubber filling.
Stay tuned for any further updates.
