Although USA Basketball‘s “Dream Team” captivated the hearts and minds of the general public at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain, 1994’s “Dream Team II” and the 1996 Olympic team made an indelible mark on international hoops as well. Shaquille O’Neal was a member of both teams, while Shawn Kemp was on the ‘94 squad and questionably excluded from the ‘96 team — much to the chagrin of one Michael Jordan — so now Reebok is paying homage to the two dominant, dunking, dashing big men’s international exploits with patriotic iterations of the Shaqnosis and Kamikaze II.

Both serve up a similar white, red and blue color scheme, each using its layered upper to accentuate its palette to the fullest extent possible. Design lines are put on full display as well. The Shaqnosis’s signature circles start in navy blue before branching out to white and red, while the jagged pieces of the Kamikaze II offer red on the heel and blue on the forefoot, with a buffer provided by a white midfoot. Each also equips Reebok Vector branding.

Although this dynamic duo is similar in several ways, there are slight diversions to be seen as well: the Shaqnosis uses a signature Dunkman logo on its heel, while the Kamikaze II opts for pops of hi-vis reflective material on tongue and heel alike. Both are finalized by navy and white midsoles stuffed with DMX cushioning.

The Reebok Shaqnosis and Kamikaze II “USA” are both set to release on the Reebok webstore come June 27. The Shaqnosis is priced at $140 USD, while the Kamikaze II slides in at $120 USD.
