Scouted as an elite high school basketball player out of Elkhart, Indiana, Shawn Kemp signed a letter of intent to play for the University of Kentucky, though a subsequent string of unfortunate incidents would end up derailing Kemp’s college career. At 19 years of age, Kemp would declare himself eligible for the 1989 NBA draft, where he would eventually go in the first round to the Seattle SuperSonics. Reebok Classic asks “What if?”, unveiling a Kentucky Wildcat-themed colorway of Kemp’s signature Kamikaze II Mid. Rendered in Kentucky blue-and-white, the Kamikaze II Mid “Letter of Intent” drops on August 16th at select Reebok retailers — including Foot Locker, Jimmy Jazz, Finish Line, DTLR, Shiekh, Champs and Shoe Palace — and at Reebok.com.
Release Date: August 16th, 2013 (Friday)
