Kendrick Lamar, who is signed to the TDE record label, performed with special guest Rihanna for a rendition of their “Loyalty” collaboration from Lamar’s 2017 “Damn” album.
On foot, the artists wore two very different yet similar footwear styles, with Kendrick opting for Abloh’s ComplexCon-exclusive Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 and Rihanna donning the brand’s “For Walking” Leather High Boots.
Lamar’s Air Force 1 sneakers currently resell for upwards of $1,000, while Rihanna’s knee-high boots retail for $2,105 and can be purchased from Off-White’s e-commerce site now.
The Air Force 1s worn by Lamar weren’t included in “The Ten” collection, but were instead a make up released exclusively at the ComplexCon event in November as part of Nike’s “AF-100” launch, which also included collaborations with Acronym, Just Don, Roc-A-Fella Records and Travis Scott.
Abloh’s Off-White x Nike “The Ten” collection was one of the year’s biggest sneaker stories, and the group’s Air Jordan 1 style took home FN’s Shoe of the Year honors — which Rihanna won the year prior for her Fenty Puma Creeper design.
Meanwhile, Rihanna’s boots are available in various colors and materials, including a zipper-equipped high version and patent leather variations.
