Last month we saw Kendrick Lamar teasing us on his instagram with a first iteration of the Cortez ‘Kung Fu Kenny,’ complete with DAMN. written in Mandarin and “Don’t Trip” ribbon on the laces, finished with rich red and white colourway.
This time round, the Cortez takes a very different turn, in a clean all white colour. DAMN. is stitched oin the lateral side of the show, in Nike’s own typeface, embroidered Swoosh on the opposite side in the same thread colour, and a black tongue with DAMN. branding above the swoosh, mimicking the classic Nike logo.
The ‘Kenny I’ moniker hints to more probable iterations of the Cortez silhouette, but in any case, this model drops on Nike’s SNKRS app on January 26, for USD 100 (approximately RM 400). While we like this version very much, we can’t help but place hope that King Kendrick releases the first version Cortez as well.
What’s say y’all? Cop or Drop?
