When it comes to the new colourway of Reebok’s Kamikaze II basketball sneakers, bolder is definitely better.
The shoe, which was originally launched in 1995 as the signature of NBA retiree Shawn Kemp, still offers a plush upper and the hexagonal cushioning that this line is known for. That said, it now has added flair with its new “Batik Blue” colourway which is an absolutely eye-catching reminder of the decade it was released.
“We think these men’s B-ball shoes speak for themselves. A fierce high contrast design. Soft and supple upper. Signature hexagonal cushioning. No detail has been overlooked. Your competition may cry. Just warning, ”Reebok wrote, in a description of the product as fierce as the shoe itself.
The colourway features a deep blue and crisp white color blocking design with a bold wave pattern. This makes it possible to perfectly showcase the details of the upper of the shoe, which is made of synthetic nubuck and has leather details. It has an EVA midsole, which is a foam-like material that will evenly disperse weight for the most comfortable stride. Finally, it has a rubber outsole and a lace-up closure that make it as comfortable as it is resistant.
“Wow, I was almost speechless when I first put them on and walked out,” one happy reviewer exclaimed. “The colors have just burst – prepare to be stopped by people everywhere you go in these kicks.”
The Reebok Kamikaze II has a release date which is currently set for August 20 via The Reebok website. It comes with a price of $ 120. It is also available in another colourway which features a sand colored leather combined with an aqua blue hue which highlights the textures of the leather and suede.
