Kendrick Lamar’s first sneaker in collaboration with Reebok proves to be a memorable one. Not only does Kendrick help provide a great looking iteration of the Ventilator, he also continues his anti-gang violence rhetoric through powerful details on the shoe. The references are clear, with each pair donning either “BLUE” or “RED” on the back, and “NEUTRAL” inscribed behind the tongue of each shoe. Unifying red and blue colors is poignant symbolism of K.Dot’s pervasive call for peace amongst gangs in his music. TDE branding on the front of the shoe tongue rounds out the details of the sure-to-be highly sought after shoe. Click through for more detailed shots of the Kendrick Lamar edition Reebok Ventilator.

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
