Following the first launch of the Kendrick Lamar x Nike Cortez during the Grammys last month, the next pair releasing will reference Lamar's alter ego, "Kung Fu Kenny."
The pair was first previewed at Kobe Bryant's jersey retirement, sporting a red, black, and white make-up. Details include the words "Don't trip" on the tongue with Chinese characters on the toe that translate to "damn," a nod to Lamar's latest album.
As of now, official release details have yet to be announced by Nike. With the NBA All-Star events happening in L.A. this weekend, a potential release during the festivities is likely.
