Peep the details on these clean Cortez Kenny 1s slated to drop January 26 on SNKRS.

The rapper took to Instagram on December 19 last year to preview an unreleased red/white Kendrick Lamar Cortez. Judging from his recent Instagram post, the collaborative sneaker will come in another colorway – all white, except for the words “DAMN” in red.

In addition, the black tongue of the shoe features the title of Kendrick Lamar’s critically-acclaimed album “DAMN.” atop the Nike swoosh in red, taking cues from the big-logo trend of 2017.

There’s no telling when exactly this colorway will be released in Singapore, but photos of the sneaker are all over social media as we speak. Nike shared a couple of images via Instagram stories of Kendrick Lamar performing with the sneakers snug on his feet- way to tease the fans and ramp up the hype, no?

Are these a must cop when they drop? Let us know in the comments below.
