Another hip hop artist with a sneaker. Kendrick Lamar has collaborated with Reebok to conceive a pair of sneakers that unify Compton’s most notorious rivals gangs Pirus and Crips. The one gang is red the other is blue. Its very much an American concept and its not a forwards fashion sneaker like the Yeezys or Jordans. The question is would you buy them at a priced of R1500 to R1800 even if the gangs have no significance in your life in South Africa? Do you think capitalism is also going too far when a brand like Reebok acknowledges and commercializes real gangs?
What are your thoughts?
