Should we take this latest Reebok GL 6000 as a sign of begrudging respect from RBK to Nike/Jordan Brand? You could rather convincingly argue that without the Swoosh and His Airness in the way, Reebok could have rode the Pump’s high tide to a dominant spot in the basketball sneaker space. With a faux Elephant print serving as the key texture on these new GL6000s, we’re reminded of how the AJIII cemented the Air Jordan as king of basketball shoes; ‘Cool Grey’ comparisons bound to follow in this pair’s tonal footsteps. Take away the historical context and these are still quite the solid effort, their purple accents adding some much needed energy to the season and a breathable upper just perfect for the coming warm weather.
