After releasing the Kenny Cortez IV house shoes, another Kendrick Lamar x Nike collaboration dropped the Nike React Element 55 Kendrick Lamar. This new iteration of the React Element 55 features a split fabric upper, with a black base on one side and white on the other. The yin-yang inspired pattern pays homage to Kendrick’s rap alter-ego, Kung Fu Kenny, and “pure platinum” and “clear-wolf grey” flow into the dual-toned design as marbling. A transparent oversized Swoosh is printed on the side of the shoe, but two other small black Swooshes create a greater contrast with the multi-platinum upper. Completing the design with React foam technology, the speckled sole offers premium comfort for both running and everyday wear, delivering an overall iconic and versatile sneaker.
