In early December the TDE lyricist was spotted wearing a new version of his running shoe that prompted curiosity from fans and sneaker heads alike.
Aptly named the “Kung Fu Kenny” these Cortez’s are rich with detail. They feature a black ribbon that lives through the middle tongue / laces and heel tag that says “Don’t Trip”. Additionally we get further branding with Chinese letters that translates to “DAMN” in between the mudguard and tiptoe.
This collaboration stays true to the original Cortez silhouette though with its’ signature ridged outsole and eyestay. Its’ build out is composed of leather accents and a mesh upper panel. Additionally a red and white colorway creates a crispy contrast.
While there isn’t an official street date on the Kenny 2’s they are slated to be released this month. Price tag is $100 dollars and will be available at select retailers.
