Call it the new school, but Kendrick Lamar definitely has already defined himself lyrically and culturally from his peers in the rap game. From being an underdog to an epic legend in all fronts, he has dominated the scene and will continue to do so.
What better way to celebrate it with his very own Nike Cortez? A Lamar favorite and a Compton staple, this shoe nods at the rapper’s past, present and his future, possibly ranking up there with Tupac, Biggie and N.W.A, this guy’s shoe is simple, yet hits the spot hard. Straight outta Compton, with all-black upper with white detailing on the Swoosh, heel, and tongue tab sits atop a white and black midsole.
A subtle yet effective red ribbon decorates the tongue for that wicked underrated effect. Definitely a must cop for the K. Dot diehard or the Cortez completist, we highly recommend that you grab a pair today. It’s a shoe that holds both music and sneaker culture in one nifty package. It’s under the name of a rap legend who’s legacy is already cemented in the pantheon of rap/hip hop!
