The encore to Kendrick Lamar’s red and blue capsule collection is finally set to drop on Friday, November 25. This classic leather lux collection — olive greens, which emphasise the theme of unity and growth are themed around calling for peace between two LA gangs {no, really!}. The in-sole of the shoe is red and blue which when combined makes green {read monies}. With only 16 pairs up for grabs in India, you can bet the queues are going to be round the block.
