In resurrecting the Kamikaze II Mid, Reebok takes a fond look back to a time when Seattle had its own NBA franchise, one led by a power forward named Shawn Kemp, aka the Reign Man. Among the most explosive dunkers in NBA history, Kemp wore the Kamikaze II Mid at the peak of his career, when the Seattle Supersonics reached the NBA Finals at the conclusion of the 1995 – 1996 season. (Unfortunately for the Kemp and the city of Seattle, the Chicago Bulls were unstoppable that year, setting an NBA record by winning 72 regular season games.) The kicks are reproduced in true OG fashion, wearing the Kamikaze’s distinctive zigzag black and white design, accented with hits of green at the Reebok branding and midsole. Look for the Reebok Kamikaze II OG in White/Black/Rivet Green to launch January 18th at select retailers and online.
