Reebok was one of the biggest companies in the early 90’s are far as showcasing new innovative technology in their sneakers. The Pay-Dirt was introduced in 1992 as a training sneaker for such big name athletes as Emmit Smith and Frank Thomas, both whom ended up getting signature shoes with Reebok. The combination of great colors, materials and different textures make these very admirable not to mention the pump technology that has rapidly shot its way back into the market. As part of their Pre-season Collection, Reebok will be releasing these trainers once again in August 2008. No retail price is set as of yet.
The people at Silas teamed up with Reebok to revamp one of their classics. The shoe comes in all black with gold accents on the tongue and a yellow bottom sole.
