Rapper Kendrick Lamar Hopes His New Reeboks Will Bring World Peace and Equality

Kendrick Lamar

Rapper-of-the-moment Kendrick Lamar hopes his new $109 Reebok sneakers will promote peace, unity and equality in the world.
The 29-year-old Compton, California native became a “brand ambassador” for the sportswear giant in 2014, and he has used similar ideological guerrilla marketing to sell sneakers to his fans.
Kendrick’s latest creation is a new twist on Reebok’s Club C model, and features acid-washed denim in black and white on the upper part of the shoe with a red label on the sneaker’s tongue.
