Reebok is home to some of the most iconic basketball silhouettes to hit the planet such as Allen Iverson‘s Question Mid and the Kamikaze II that’s mostly associated with former Seattle Supersonics legend Shawn Kemp. The latter model is now set to increase its output this season in low-top form by channeling its original black and white color scheme.

The greyscale palette presentation here is essentially the same as the model’s 25th anniversary bring-back which dropped in 2020, only it is translated on a chopped down variation. The Mid-90s installment of the upper half is anchored by a solid black nubuck layer which rests below crispy white leather overlays that ascend and descend almost like a range of mountains. Branded hits make appearances in three different areas including the forefoot, heels, and tongues, the first two sections sporting the classic vector insignia while the tongues spell out the Boston-based company’s namesake.

Midsoles continue the them by seeing through to stealthy backgrounds, and come decorated with more angular patterns painted from the forefoot to the heel.

For retro hoop stans looking to grab a pair, they are available now via Reebok in Europe for €130 (approx. $158 USD).

In other news, a brand new Vetements x Reebok Spike Runner 200 has been unveiled.
