Allen Iverson, Swizz Beatz and Rick Ross, the return of the Shaqnosis and Shaq Attaq – things are coming together quite well for the basketball division of Reebok Classics, so hopefully last Thursday’s re-release of the OG Reebok Question is just the start of a string of great releases. Last year’s release of the Swizz Beatz x Reebok Kamikaze is a clear sign that the brand is keeping the Kamikaze close to heart, but the truth is, there wouldn’t be any better way to revitalize the brand by re-releasing some of its most cherished original models like the Kamikaze; just check out the reader response from our report of the return of the Reebok Shaq signature line and you’ll see that the demand is there.
The truth is, it’s not just one or two models that the public is looking for, so this showcase of Reebok’s greatest hits of the 1990’s is a nice reminder that the Retro sneaker scene is ready for co-dominance; the Reebok Kamikaze, Blast, Reignman, The Shroud, The Answer saga, Black Top – just entertaining the thought of a string of Reebok Basketball re-issues gets us hot and bothered (and it’s not just Basketball, the Reebok turf shoes were bangers). Check out a quick showcase of these classics below and let us know which of the bunch you’d like to see hit stores again, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for any more updates on Reebok’s apparent Retro push.

Wow i haven't seen "The Shrouds" since i had them joints in middle school. Will pick em up in a heart beat if they drop again.
I WANT ALL THE KAMIKAZE 1 & 2 AND I WANT THEM REEBOK JOINTS THAT LOOK LIKE THE REEBOK RUSH 2'S BUT ZIP DOWN
Some great memories there but reebok need to remember the rest of the world need to be able to score a retro as well!!!
fuck them they pulled a nike 16 pairs of questions in the jimmy jazz in nyc and not all of em had them. i thought reebok would learn from the competition and do a bit better. then again i can also blame it on the kiddies that hype every damn brand!
I think at some point every sneaker head chose a path, Reebok being one of them. I chose otherwise. Right around the time that I bought my very first pair... I'm guessing most people did the same considering Reebok's market share.
Those all bring back memories of high school, back when I would play basketball with my Shaq Attaqs, and my Shaq jersey. Everyone I played with called me Shaq, I was a 6' tall 130lb white kid LOL
In the retro stakes Reebok kills Nike and JB when it comes to material quality. Sorry but it's true.
Keep the reebok shrouds. I remember when the shrouds came out in unison with the air zoom flight 97 the glove. Air zoom flight 97 > reebok shrouds. gary payton > shawn kemp
if they release the OG kamikaze 1 & 2 sonics and the blast.... I'll forget the overpriced Nikes for this year!....
Yea reebok should release em all but dont make it limited. Im still pissed dat i dint get the dam questions!
Man all these retro reeboks takes me back to elementry. If they drop some of these reeboksI will def cop.
If they're Smart, Reebok will Release/Retro these ORIGINALS just like they did with the Questions! Shroud's & Kamikazee II's... PLEASE!
jordans sat forever too back in the day fool. this selling out in 10 min at every release shit didnt happen until now......
I think Jeremy Scott broke adidas. I'm a hard core adidas fan from way back but damn, those wings n things you sing about throw em out!
who you telling FOOL I been doing this long time no matter brand I had nikes (jordans)Reeboks Adidas fila converse la gear when they first shoe dropped and they were expensive Ewing pony but my point I can remember long lines short lines no lines I like sneakers but I'm not willing to make there pockets fatter for some thing I would be able get my self if them suckas weren't in line in the first place. everybody complain bout resellers on Ebay don't buy them off Ebay they will be sitting on shoes for ever and have to bow down and cheapen the price or get a REAL job. simple don't buy on Ebay if its something that just came out. but people are stupid and mostly lazy so what ever
