Another celeb kicks collab is coming hot on the heels — I mean rubber soles — of Rihanna's Creepers and Kanye West's Yeezy Boost 750s. Rapper Kendrick Lamar and Reebok have partnered for their third sneaker capsule collection. Their new collab celebrates the iconic Classic Leather sneaker. Lamar and designer Ian Paley teamed up to put their own custom spin on the original design. The shoes come in both adult and children's sizes, so the whole fam can be outfitted in these cool kicks. When are the new Kendrick Lamar x Reeboks available to buy?
According to the press release Bustle received, you can shop the Reebok x Kendrick Lamar Classic Leather shoes on Friday, July 1. How much are the kicks? Adult sizes are $109.99, while the Grade School editions are $64.99. Pre-school kicks are $59.99 and the Toddler versions are $41.99.
While the shoe is not technically unisex, the equivalent of women's sizes are available, with a mix of smaller Men's and larger Grade School sizes. So the range covers all women's sizes, as well, which the PR team told Bustle via email.
Lastly, where can you purchase the latest round of Lamar x Reeboks? Select retailers include the Reebok site, Shoe Palace, and Sneaker Villa.
So that's all of your "where and when" critical intel. But what about the look and the design? Those have a deeper meaning.
As the press materials noted, the aesthetic is deconstructed and the shoe boasts a seam running down the shoe, separating the blue and the red.
There's something for everyone. Plus, those tiny toddler shoes are too cute.
Your entire family can rock a pair of Kendrick Lamar x Reeboks.
These sneakers will also go with anything, because they are so classic.
The split seam and new design are a metaphor meant to represent the crossroads and major decisions that the rapper has faced in his life.
The design is deceptively simple. There are cool details that make them standout, namely the splits.
Check out how the brand's logo is split and is placed in different locations on each shoe. It's not exactly symmetrical, which I dig.
No, this is not just another celeb sneaker collab. These kicks have a deeper meaning in the design and they look incredibly cool. Shoes such as this remind us of the power of fashion. It's about expression of something more.
Happy shopping on July 1.
