Shoe Review: Kendrick Lamar x Reebok Classic Leather (Purchase Link)

The “brand new” Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Classic Leather was debuted by Kendrick Lamar on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon weeks ago. I knew it was only a matter of time before Kendrick did a Classic Leather and I was excited. However, this shoe features the exact same theme and execution from Kendrick’s Reebok Ventilator (albeit with a slightly different neutral hue). I guess Reebok saw that resale prices on the Vents are still sky high so they figured, “Let’s do it again.” 
Here’s the information from Reebok:

Following the success of their collaborations in 2015, Reebok and Kendrick Lamar are marking the second year of their partnership by paying homage to one of the Reebok’s most iconic silhouettes, the Classic Leather

The Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Classic Leather will launch on Saturday, January 16, 2016. This limited release is Kendrick’s second sneaker design, after the Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Ventilator release in 2015. It showcases his personal take on the timeless Reebok ClassicLeather silhouette, celebrating the powerful vision of unity that can be heard so prominently in his music.

The Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Classic Leather is a continuation of the blue/red LA neutrality theme for Kendrick, with the neutral colorway 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 grey laces are also included with this limited edition launch. Kendrick’s connection to Reebok Classic Leather’s also runs deep, as he wore the silhouettes as a kid growing up in Compton.

Again, the Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Classic Leather launches Saturday, January 16 on, Reebok stores, and Shoe Palace for $90.
