Some feelings were hurt in the process of Reebok’s attempted bring-back of the Frank Thomas Big Hurt retro earlier this year. First the sneaker was delayed and then subsequently shelved all together due to Thomas seeking profits from all shoes sold under the Big Hurt namesake, and the brand and man continued to bump heads in court considering his contract ended with the vector brand in 1998. Today we get a look at what could have been, with 7 colorways of the sneaker showing off a the three teams in which Frank suited up for over his 18 year career in the White Sox, Athletics, and Blue Jays.

Feelings Hurt: Frank Thomas Sues Reebok Over Big Hurt Retro

reebok big hurt frank thomas lawsuit 570x381 Feelings Hurt: Frank Thomas Sues Reebok Over Big Hurt Retro

The retro return of the Reebok Big Hurt is apparently one that the sneaker’s namesake, Hall of Fame hitter Frank Thomas, didn’t sign off on. According to TMZ, the White Sox legend claims that he had a deal with Reebok running from 1995-98 that allowed them to use his nickname to sell the shoes, with this year’s re-introduction of the sneakers obviously falling well outside that range. The lawsuit, filed in Illinois, has Thomas asking for profits made off any sales of the 2014 Reebok Big Hurt as well as the immediate ceasing of all sales of the shoes. Let us know if you think Thomas is in the right down in the comments and watch for updates on the Big Hurt debacle on Sneaker News.

Reebok Big Hurt – Blue – White – Royal

They started calling Frank Thomas ‘The Big Hurt’ in Chicago back in the early 90s; might’ve had something to do with him completely clobbering the ball en route to two consecutive MVPs before he turned 27.  The fact that he stood 6’5″, 240 was another good reason, so even at the tail end of his hall of fame career, this 500+ HR hitter remained an imposing figure.  This Reebok Big Hurt in white and tonal blue seems to connect with the Toronto Blue Jays with whom Thomas spent most of his last two seasons (and keep in mind, there’s an ‘Oakland Athletics’ colorway coming up honoring those last 50 or so games of 2008).  They’re just a bit of red away from a perfect match to Toronto’s iconic powder blue pullover jersey, and you can see more details on this would be ‘Blue Jays’ Big Hurt below.
