Following back to back American League MVP seasons in 1993 and ’94, Reebok zeroed in on Chicago White Sox first baseman Frank Thomas. Maximizing the strengths of this superstar player feared for his power at the plate, RBK named Thomas’ signature series after the nickname describing his stature and its capacities. The Reebok Big Hurt returns some seventeen years after its debut, this sample evincing a few alterations as compared to the 1996 originals. The colorway is a mix of the first two, with the red-Vector’d branding from the inverted white/black edition borrowed to add some extra flare to this white-striped black suede OG. Subtle shifts at the midsole include a Hexalite cutout at the heel, so have a closer look below and stick with Sneaker News for release info.

"Subtle shifts at the midsole include a Hexalite cutout at the heel, so have a closer look below and stick with Sneaker News for release info." - As far as I know these always had a hexalite "cutout at the heel" had the OG when I was a kid.
These were so cool back in the day. Frank was my 3rd fave player after Griffey and Canseco lol. But looking at the shoe now, it's pretty ugly
@Jamixx08 I didn't see where they said it was a new feature on this model. I think they were just describing the shoe
