Reebok is currently going through a transition phase with its Kamikaze II as it has officially been renamed the “Hurrikaze” out of respect for Japanese war culture. During this period, the silhouette will still be released in various colorways under its original name, one of which is this new iteration that is dressed up in Seattle Supersonics-friendly tones to honor NBA legend Shawn Kemp.
The kicks are devised with smooth leather uppers, most of which are outfitted in white to let the team-inspired accents do the talking. Zig-zag overlays across the base layers and midsoles have been styled with a bold green hue, the former of which comes readied with fake water droplets to call out Kemp’s “Rain Man” nickname while the latter feature yellow speckles. Further hints of yellow also touch down on the Reebok tongue logos and forefoot and heel vector insignias to complete its Sonics-inspired ensemble.
If you want to add these to your rotation, make note that select retailers like Finish Line will be dropping them on April 15.
