If the Swizz Beatz remixes aren’t quite your thing then fear not, a bit of the original Reebok Kamikaze heritage is indeed coming back around for a retro tour. That bit is in the form of the Reebok Kamikaze II (a silo you no doubt noticed on the feet of Swizzy and Tyga in our press conference post) which will be arriving in a couple Shawn Kemp approved classic colorways along with a few newer versions whose gaudy appeal almost drips over into the Reebok x Basquiat category in terms of aesthetics. With the OG by the likes of the White/Black/Green and White/Navy joined by surprisingly energetic colorways like the Silver/Red and the Red/Yellow/Gold, will the Kamikaze II have enough punch to re-live the relevance it once had over 15 years ago? Click through to get a look at what’s in store for the Reebok Kamikaze II (and keep in mind that those camo pairs are also in the mix) and stick with Sneaker News for more firm release info going forward.
