TDE, Reebok and Kendrick Lamar have teamed up for the Reebok Ventilator shoe, the first of his capsule collection.
The immortal words of K.Dot “If Pirus & Crips, all got along” inspired the shoe and that message of unity has led the collaborators to release a video of two Compton gang members: G Weed, a Piru and Jigga, a Crip to discuss gang life, the environment they grew up in, how music influences the youth – and finally, their thoughts on the just released sneakers.
The Reebok Classic features a tonal paperwhite upper made of premium pigskin nubuck with perforated detailing and a pigskin leather lining. The neutral palette reflects Lamar’s hope to bring peace to the streets and the Hits of red and blue symbolize the divide between prominent gangs.
