The KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER continues the rapper’s attempts to unite the Bloods and the Crips.
As we explained with the Ventilator drop the concept behind the colourway is the idea of neutrality, with a balance between the Blue (Crips) and the Red (Bloods), which are two of the largest gangs across America and prevalent in Kendrick’s hometown of Compton. Like the Ventilator the CLASSIC LEATHER features a neutral coloured upper, which is offset by BLUE and RED branding on the left and right heel respectively. The blue and red theme continues on to the laces, with both colours providing some detail to the predominantly neutral laces, as well as the undersides of the tongue labels, which feature NEUTRAL branding, and the tri-branded insoles. Down below are clean white midsoles, and the ever popular choice of gum outsoles round off the look. Whether these will improve relations between the gangs, we don’t know, but we respect Kendrick for what he is trying to do and the colourway is undeniably clean.
The KENDRICK LAMAR X REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER is scheduled for release soon, so make sure to keep checking back with us for updates. In the meantime you can check out the brand’s current offerings via the banner below.
