Reebok has prepped the Kamikaze II Low in a “Spearmint/Maximum Orange” colorway that seems to nod to the boisterous jerseys worn in the 1996 NBA All-Star Game. The inspiration — and the colorway — are fitting, as Shawn Kemp, the high-flying forward that the Kamikaze II was originally created for, started in the game, scoring 13 points and throwing down a handful of highlight-reel dunks.
The Kamikaze II’s signature zig-zagging upper serves as an extremely apt canvas for the bright “Spearmint/Maximum Orange” colorway. Bases take on the signature “Spearmint” tone while overlays contrast with a crisp white hue. “Maximum Orange” appears on the DMX-filled midsole’s heel, where it’s speckled with more “Spearmint” hits, and a bright pink is introduced into the mix on the forefoot, heel and tongue’s Vector logos. More white and “Spearmint” embellishments collide on the midsole’s forefoot, and the outsole brings all four colors together to complete the look.
Expect the Reebok Kamikaze II Low “Spearmint/Maximum Orange” to release on the Reebok webstore come July 16. Its MSRP is set at an even $100 USD.
