Kendrick Lamar’s Deconstructed Reebok Classic Leather
It’s no secret when it comes to Kendrick Lamar’s mission of unifying the two rival gangs in LA — the Bloods and the Crips of course. This has been the key driver behind the design of the previously released Reebok Ventilator and Classic Leather collab, and still is on the upcoming deconstructed Reebok Classic Leather.
Following previous releases, the ‘Pub Shoe’ takes on a neutral cream suede upper, inheriting a red palette on the left and blue colour scheme on the right. Unlike the previous releases, Kendrick Lamar gets a little creative with this one adding a seam down the middle of the shoe; epitomising the coming together of the two rivals. A grey and white midsole sits underneath it all together with a popular gum outsole.
There are no signs of an Australian release as of yet, but if it does happen, Hype DC and Culture Kings will most likely be your go-to. However, there will be releases at select Reebok retailers from July 1st onwards in full family sizes.
