Well, it appears that the wait won’t be too much longer given that the black/white/green OG colorway has been spotted out in the wild. Pictured are a couple covert glances at the sneaker snapped from a recent influencer event that the brand held, which played host to a ton of upcoming goodies. See more angles below and tell us if you think the Reebok Kamikaze can have the same success as the Reebok Kamikaze II.

Classics Revisited: Reebok Kamikaze I & II (1994-1995)

May 29th, 2012 by | 18 comments

reebok kamikaze original 1994 Classics Revisited: Reebok Kamikaze I & II (1994 1995)


Yesterday’s feature of Frank Thomas’ Reebok Big Hurt for Classics Revisited placed an unforeseen spotlight on one of the most unique sneakers of the 90′s, and like it did during the original run, the Big Hurt response was mixed, to say the least. But moving from the diamond to the hardwood is the first signature shoe for a top athlete known for thunderous slams of his own – Shawn Kemp of the Seattle Supersonics. Kemp and Gary Payton formed one of the most exciting duos in NBA history while climbing up the ranks of the Western Conference, and it was during that early to mid-90′s tenure that earned him the nickname ‘Reignman’ for his vicious downpours on feeble defenders in the paint. In 1994, Reebok introduced Kemp as part of its elite group of athletes with the Reebok Kamikaze – a radically new design that minimalized the Reebok logo and emphasized a dynamic design to match Kemp’s electrifying persona.

In addition to the footwear was a line of Shawn Kemp apparel that was advertised as ‘Super-Human Gear For Mere Mortals’, and the success of the sneaker as well as Kemp’s rising popularity led to second model known as the Reebok Kamikaze II (which Kemp wore during the 1996 clash against the legendary ’96 Bulls in the Finals). The Kamikaze line came to an end with the II with the introduction of the Reebok Reignman in late ’96, but the Kamikaze later reprised its role as part of a Swizz Beatz collaboration that opened up new doors to a new collection of Retro-inspired lifestyle/street footwear. The Kamikaze is certainly one of the most recognizable titles of 90′s sneaker history and tied to one of the most exciting Power Forwards to ever play the game, so get familiar with the Kamikaze and Kamikaze II below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on Reebok’s 90′s renaissance!

Reebok 90′s Basketball Showcase

May 27th, 2012 by | 31 comments

reebok 1990s basketball showcase Reebok 90s Basketball Showcase

Allen Iverson, Swizz Beatz and Rick Ross, the return of the Shaqnosis and Shaq Attaq – things are coming together quite well for the basketball division of Reebok Classics, so hopefully last Thursday’s re-release of the OG Reebok Question is just the start of a string of great releases. Last year’s release of the Swizz Beatz x Reebok Kamikaze is a clear sign that the brand is keeping the Kamikaze close to heart, but the truth is, there wouldn’t be any better way to revitalize the brand by re-releasing some of its most cherished original models like the Kamikaze; just check out the reader response from our report of the return of the Reebok Shaq signature line and you’ll see that the demand is there.

The truth is, it’s not just one or two models that the public is looking for, so this showcase of Reebok’s greatest hits of the 1990′s is a nice reminder that the Retro sneaker scene is ready for co-dominance; the Reebok Kamikaze, Blast, Reignman, The Shroud, The Answer saga, Black Top – just entertaining the thought of a string of Reebok Basketball re-issues gets us hot and bothered (and it’s not just Basketball, the Reebok turf shoes were bangers). Check out a quick showcase of these classics below and let us know which of the bunch you’d like to see hit stores again, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for any more updates on Reebok’s apparent Retro push.

Reebok Kamikaze III Mid – Holiday 2011 Colorways

reebok kamikaze 3 mid holiday 2011 1 Reebok Kamikaze III Mid   Holiday 2011 Colorways

It’s been about six weeks since we’ve seen a new Reebok Kamikaze III Mid colorway hit retailers, but luckily, there are still a few on the way for the holiday season.  This throwback to the mid-’90s takes on an interesting twist with a Freshwater-like colorway you might have expected to see from one of Nike Sportswear’s Ken Griffey Jr. retro line.  A blue and red pair could be seen as a Sixers getup to move things back to a more familiar RBK territory, while grey, black and white is sufficiently neutral that no one can lay claim to it, yet the combo is essentially impeccable.  Check out all three in greater detail after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for the US release dates.  via EK
