Reebok Classic Kamikaze II Overcast hints at Seattle climate


Everyone who knows about 1990s basketball is familiar with Shawn Kemp and his Reebok Kamikaze shoes, I and II, but in the years since, they’ve reappeared, and the new Reebok Classic Kamikaze II Overcast has come to pay tribute to the city of Seattle.

(For the record, the Overcast is the best version of the Kamikaze II to date. The absolute best.)

First launched in 1996, the Reebok Kamikaze II Mid is the original go-to shoe for Seattle basketball legend Shawn Kemp. The groundbreaking silhouette burst onto the scene coupling an aggressive design with performance enhancing Hexalite technology.

The final drop in this fall’s Reign Pack is the Kamikaze II Mid Overcast which pays homage to the dark and cloudy Seattle skyline. With an all-black upper and a smoky grey speckled midsole, the once-performance basketball shoe can now pair perfectly with your favorite outfit. This tough-as-nails Kamikaze style features a durable ballistic nylon upper as well as a reflective heel tab to keep you comfortable and weather-ready in the extreme conditions of the Emerald City.

The Kamikaze II Mid “Overcast” drops on Friday, December 11th for $104.99 at, Finish Line and Jimmy Jazz.
