Reebok’s got even more digging to do as far as retro basketball silhouettes that are set to return. Apparently in the pipeline is a Reebok The Shroud retro. The Shawn Kemp model debuted back in 1997 and featured the namesake zippered covering along with Ultralite cushioning and an EVA sockliner on the innards. It was definitely an unorthodox model for its time, but we feel like plenty more would be accepting of them in this current era of shrouded shoes like the Jordan XX8 and the reborn Glove. Browse some images on them below and tell us if the return of the Reebok Shroud has got you excited.

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.
