After a few teaser previews whetted the appetites of Reebok-hungry fans, we’re finally getting a first detailed look at the Reebok Kamikaze II designed by Packer Shoes. Inspired by the 1996 NBA All-Star Game and the snazzy jerseys worn by the game’s best, the Packer Shoes x Reebok Kamikaze II captures all the bright, festive colors of teal, pink, and orange and combines it with a multi-toned grey upper – a stark contrast to the actual All-Star versions that Shawn Kemp wore in that famous game. Adding to the theme of the All-Star Game in San Antonio is the chili pepper detailing on the Reebok vector logo and the insoles of the shoes – a fitting choice of detail considering these Reeboks are definitely “heaters”.
Along with the shoes, Packer Shoes has a collaborative capsule of Mitchell & Ness gear – a caricature t-shirt, a 1996 All-Star Hardwood Classics snapback, and an authentic jersey. In an already crowded year filled with Reebok partnerships, Packer Shoes easily rises to top and may be remembered as the best Reebok release of the year. The Packer Shoes x Reebok Kamikaze II “Remember The Alamo” and the entire collection of apparel will release on Friday, August 2nd (in-store and online) exclusively at Packer Shoes, so enjoy the detailed gallery below.
These are nasty! Living in San Antonio its only right I get these and rock em downtown at the Alamo!
Best colorway yet..i had the black green and white colorway in the 7th grade...but this colorway makes the entire shoe pop
oooh fuck yes sneakernews if you do 800 reposts of this and make them impossible to get im gonna be super pissed. i have yet to miss out on a pair of kamikazes that i wanted and i damn sure dont want these to be the first
beautiful cw and as Big Inf. said, that color placement is just stupid, i would love to rock these and i havent had a pair of ree's since middle school
@JFresh_136 I know....Packer releases are always pandemonium.
Or we don't need any "second looks" or "cop or not" posts or anything that will build unnecessary hype. PLEASE.
