The latest from Reebok and Kendrick Lamar is almost here. The partnership first released a collaborative Ventilator. Due to his past gang involvement, Lamar opted to send a message of unity. His first release came with a Blue vs. Red theme. The sneakers, though separate in color, stood for peace. Still, Kendrick continues harping on that message with his latest project, the Kendrick Lamar x Reebok Classic Leather.
Kendrick Lamar x Reebok Classic Leather Release Date
Reebok’s Classic Leather model is the collaborative choice here. As such, this sneaker maintains the standard CL’s main features. A stitched leather upper features some interesting design choices. Each sneaker of the pair comes with half of the Red or Blue design scheme. Thanks to the designs’ location on the outside lateral panels, the shoes come together nicely. Bringing them together shows the Red/ Blue theme, emphasizing unity and peace between gangs. The shoe’s look is finished off with a Gum outsole.

The quality on these joints looks terrific. There’s only one major reason these shoes get slept on: they’re Reeboks. But, that’s unfair. The fact of the matter is that this pair, much like K.Dot’s Ventilators, is executed really, really well. In fact, the fact that it’s a Reebok model is one of the main reasons you should be on the lookout for these. The Classic Leather is a no-frills, high quality shape that maintains quality materials.
The job done on this particular iteration is both creative and conservative. While the details help this CL standout from other versions in its history, there’s no sacrifice of the shoe’s material quality. Don’t sleep!
