The latest Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez is just around the corner

Posted on Oct 18, 2018 in Nike

We’ve seen Perea Street (@pereastreet) rock them the past few weeks and they actually had the global release last Sunday. This Saturday, you too can be rocking Kenny’s latest collaboration with Nike. The highly-anticipated Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez Kenny IV ‘House Shoe’ has its roots in LA Culture but resonates on a much wider scale.

“House shoes have always been part of LA culture,” says Lamar. His intent with the Kenny IV was to retain the ease and comfort of the slipper, but also allow people to still feel sleek. “The shoe is all about being able to get up and just go out in style.”

The classic Cortez gets a makeover, with design cues from the irreverent house shoe. An oversized tongue replaces the traditional laces with a drawstring clasp found at the heel to get that perfect fit. Thunder Blue, Wolf Grey and Turf Orange are found throughout the shoe to give the basic white sneaker some added flare.

The Nike Cortez Kenny IV “House Shoe” drops this Saturday, October 20, exclusively at Commonwealth. The shoe will be available upon the opening of their Rockwell flagship. The shoe retails for Php 4,995.
