Toward the end of his NBA career, Shawn Kemp had become a walking cautionary tale for the professional athlete who overstayed his welcome. We prefer to remember the high-flying forward during his mid-1990s tenure with the Seattle SuperSonics, peaking with a trip to the NBA finals following the 1995 – 1996 regular season. Kemp wore the Reebok Kamikaze II that season, a distinctively designed shoe that reflected the Reign Man’s dynamic style of play. Performance benefits took the form of Hexalite cushioning in the forefoot and Ultra Hexalite in the heel, providing impact protection for one of the best dunkers in the game. Available in a duo of OG colorways, the Kamikaze II is set to release tomorrow at select Reebok retailers and online.
Release Date: February 1st, 2013 (Tomorrow)
