Lamar collaborated with the brand’s partner Ian Parley on the split capsule shoe, which features a longitudinal seam down the middle — a nod to the musician’s split between fame and the social responsibility that comes with it, Reebok said in a statement.

The Compton, Calif.-born Grammy winner’s kicks include blue and red accents that express division between gangs and his call for neutrality.

Lamar recently took part in a vintage-inspired campaign for the brand’s Perfect Split Leather Pack, available online.
