Kendrick Lamar recently collaborated with Nike to create a new look for its popular 'Cortez' model, which was dubbed the 'Kung-Fu Kenny,' to reflect the alter ego that the rapper uses.

The sneakers boast a sleek and narrow build, with the uppers overtaken primarily by a deep hue of vivid red and white, with the latter providing some contrast and marking Nike's iconic Swoosh logos on the sides. Overlaying the black laces is a matching band that goes through the entirety of the tongues, which boast the words "DON'T TRIP" in a Gothic white lettering. In addition, Chinese lettering marks the sides of toes in white, which is said to have a double entendre meaning that translates to "Supposed to Die" and "Damn."
