Reebok Kamikaze II Retro
The first model marking Swizz Beatz‘ reign at Reebok was inspired by Shawn Kemp’s dominant period with the Seattle Supersonics, and it’s been so long since we’ve seen the original, a good portion of the sneakerhead community has never had a chance to cop these. But after the success of the Kamikaze III, Swizzy looked back to the 1995 sophomore effort that inspired its distinct lines, and now we have even further proof that indeed, ‘Reebok Back.’ The Reebok Kamikaze II is a throwback to the Sonics’ 1996 NBA Finals run, yet another example of why some older heads think that season’s sneaker output roughly matched the Chicago Bulls’ record setting 72-win campaign. Expect this OG colorway later this year with more to follow in 2013, so click through for more and stick with Sneaker News for the specific details.
This one kid said these sucked. He must be a new sneaker head. There were a lot of heat back then besides the Air Jordan series. Anyway these are hot. I'd pick one up.
i never liked the 2s back in the day living in seattle as a huuuge kemp/sonics fan. the 1s tho? those are dope as fck.
Remember vividly not having enough Xmas doe to cop the Jordan XI's , so scooped these and a Joe Smith Rookie Warriors jersey ....Ironically that shit was mismatched as fuck back than , but IDGAF ...good memories
In before the hypebeasts! I still have my OG I and II's. These sat for years, yes years, back in the day. Now kids will buy them up because it's 'cool'. Death to hype and resellers!!
or maybe kids is gonna buy them because they respect the history of them and didnt have a chance to own a pair of OGs. Quit blaming hype for everything.
