Kendrick Lamar’s official partnership with Nike is off to an exciting start as we get a first look at a pair of red Cortez sneakers with the “DAMN” tour type on the tongue. Previously affiliated with Reebok Classics, Kendrick Tour took the stage for his global DAMN tour this year while wearing the Cortez, a shoe that has significance in his hometown of Compton. In addition to this red pair, there are samples of a white/black and black/white colorway of the shoes featuring the same “KL” initials on the heel as well as the same tongue label. Despite its simplicity and straightforward design, this Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez should be highly sought after among sneakerheads and Kendrick fans alike. Stay tuned for release updates.
