On the other end of lobs from Gary Payton during the ’94-’95 NBA season, Shawn Kemp debuted his first ever signature shoe  — the Reebok Kamikaze. Its Seattle-inspired colorway and uniquely blocked upper set the tone for classics mid-90s Reebok footwear that would follow.

Last year, Reebok kicked things off by bringing back the Kamikaze 2. In 2014, they’re bringing back the original in celebration of its 20th Anniversary. The shoe returns with its white leather and black nubuck upper, along with green accents on the tongue, heel and outsole.

Kemp’s classic Reebok basketball shoes will be available here for $115 this Friday at 8:00 a.m. / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

words // Brandon Richard

Reebok celebrates the holiday season by introducing a three-pack of sneakers inspired by the classic tale A Christmas Carol. In the story, Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas visit the cold-hearted, tight-fisted and greedy Ebenezer Scrooge with the goal of transformation.

In Reebok’s Pack, the Ghost of Christmas Future is represented by Allen Iverson’s Question. Shaquille O’Neal’s Shaq Attaq is the Ghost of Christmas Present and this all-new colorway of Shawn Kemp’s Kamikaze 2 depicts the Ghost of Christmas Past. The shoe brings varying red shades, white and steel grey together on the shoe’s upper, which has been constructed with textured synthetic leather, patent leather and suede. Finishing off the festive style below is a red translucent outsole.

You can pick up these Reebok Basketball shoes here for $100 tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

words // Brandon Richard

No, you’re not mistaken. After initially releasing this past February as part of Reebok’s ‘Then & Now’ Pack, the ‘Seattle Supersonics’ Kamikaze 2 is back for another round.

Inspired by Shawn Kemp’s prime years in the Emerald City, this colorway is white-based with metallic green, yellow and black accents. What really makes this shoe standout is the addition of synthetic rain droplets throughout the upper, a salute to Seattle’s famous weather and Kemp’s ‘Reign Man’ nickname.

After selling out earlier this year, these Reebok Basketball shoes re-release here next Monday, November 25 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.
