Eastbay Memory Lane // Reebok Kamikaze II Mid & Low

words // Brandon Richard

Now that the Reebok Kamikaze II is back in several original colorways, let’s take a look back at when they originally dropped in 1996.

Here’s a page from a Spring ’96 Eastbay catalog, featuring the Kamikaze II in Mid and Low-cut variations. As you can see, the Black/White and Black/Red colorways that released today are in the mix, along with the green-accented “Seattle” colorway and Shawn Kemp’s White/Navy All-Star shoe.

Not to be overlooked is the polyester Kamikaze shooting shirt and short set, which unfortunately hasn’t been re-released…yet.

Take a trip down Eastbay Memory Lane with us and enjoy this vintage look at the Kamikaze II.
