Following an earlier work on the Ventilator, Reebok Classic and TDE’s Kendrick Lamar have linked up once again to come up with a touch to the classic leather silhouette.
This time, Kendrick worked with British designer Ian Paley – of Garbstore – to refurbish these classic leather shoes. The most evident aesthetic feature is the presence of a midway longitudinal seam running from mid-sole all the way to the tip of the tongue. This seam separates blue and red portions of each sneaker in a pair. Like he has done in previous collaborations, Kendrick Lamar remains consistent in advocating for unity and gang neutrality with his music and now fashion.
The tongue of each shoe spots half of the Reebok Classic logo, while the other shoe in a pair fills in with the other half. Only the letter ‘K’ from the brand name is left to appear near the eyelets.
The brand name at the back is also split in half. With ‘Ree’ printed in red on one shoe, and ‘bok’ printed in blue on the other.
The Reebok Classic Kendrick Lamar “Classic Leather” officially drops on July 1st at Reebok’s site, ranging from $41.99 to $109.99 depending on sizes.
