Nike will collaborate with new endorser Kendrick Lamar on a pair of West Coast sneakers inspired by his latest album. Shown here are photos leaked by @sinshouhin_com on Twitter of an upcoming Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez dressed in red with references to Lamar's Damn album on its tongues.

The Cortez is a favorite of Lamar's, who has rapped about the model, and an important shoe in his native California.

This Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez features the rapper's initials on the heel and dubraes with the logo of his label, TDE.

Nike has not announced this Kendrick Lamar collaboration, and there is no sneaker release date information for the shoe available yet.

UPDATE 10/13: Nike tells Sole Collector that the pair pictured is an early sample of the Kendrick x Nike Cortez, and does not match the final retail version.
