After receiving a sneak peek at Kendrick Lamar and Nike’s “DAMN.” Cortez, we recently received a first look at the next collaborative shoe from the artist and sneaker giant. Playing with the silhouette of Nike’s retro Cortez runner once again, the upcoming Kung Fu Kenny-inspired colorway features a contrasting red and white upper accented by a large Swoosh on the sides of the shoe and a classic Cortez sole unit. While Chinese script on the toe area and a “DON’T TRIP” lace holder finish the design of the shoe.

Take a first look at the Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez “Kenny” above and let us know what you think. Also, Nike recently gave the retro Air Zoom Spiridon runner a clean cream makeover.
