Nike and Kendrick Lamar have officially unveiled his next Cortez collaboration with the brand which will be hist fourth in the collection.

Dubbed the Nike Cortez Kenny 4 House Shoe, the silhouette takes the Cortez’s classic lines and applies a simplicity and convenience of use from an Angelino staple: the house shoe.

“House shoes have always been part of LA culture,” says Lamar. His intent with the Kenny IV was to retain the ease and comfort of the slipper, but also allow people to still feel sleek. “The shoe is all about being able to get up and just go out in style.”

In that vein, Lamar believes the shoe successfully attaches personal thought to classic, vintage style. What’s more, it synthesizes the values of Lamar’s home community in an unbounded way. Lamar notes that, in the shoe’s making, he was fascinated by all the possible color palettes and the many ways you can give a shoe character.

Get an official look at the sneaker above and look for the Nike Cortez Kenny 4 House Shoe on October 14th for $100.
