If Pirus and Crips all got along…
Kendrick Lamar x Reebok Classic.
Committed to continually pushing boundaries through partnerships with likeminded individuals and industry trailblazers, Reebok Classic announces its next step in collaboration with Grammy-winning Top Dawg Entertainment artist Kendrick Lamar, launching a signature, limited edition capsule collection for FW15. His first time designing for the brand, the range brings Lamar’s powerful vision to life, inspired by his hometown of Compton, C.A.
Centered around the idea of bringing peace and awareness to the streets, the Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar ‘NEUTRAL’ collection features two of the brand’s celebrated silhouettes, the Reebok Classic Ventilator and Club C, both executed in a muted colourway to emphasize the message of a call for neutrality. Accents of red to the right foot and blue to the left foot feature alongside debossed ‘RED’ and BLUE’ heel logos, symbolizing the existing divide between the Bloods and Crips, two of the most prominent gangs in L.A.
The Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Ventilator features a tonal paperwhite upper made of premium pigskin nubuck with perforated detailing and a pigskin leather lining. This neutral colorway is contrasted by minimal hits of blue and red on the sockliners, embroidered tongue labels, debossed heels and woven rope laces. A secondary set of waxed tonal laces are also included. In celebration of the silhouette’s 25th anniversary, the Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar ‘NEUTRAL’ Ventilator drops first on the 18th of July followed by the ‘NEUTRAL’ Club C. The limited edition Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Ventilator will be available on Reebok.com, Shiekh, Shoe Palace, Bait, DTLR and Shoe City for $125 starting 7/18.
