3. Reebok Kamikaze II (1996)
It ain’t hard to tell that after the successful retro release still going strong in 2013 we could use these back for good. For a minute in the mid-90s a lot of serious basketball shoes were dropping—and Shawn Kemp helped push Planet Reebok to the next level. The simplistic use of white and black EKG-esque lines were the foundation of the aesthetically pleasing kicks. Throw in the comfortable Hexalite cushioning and stable ankle support and you were ready to average a double-double and throw down dunks on the best of ’em… vertical pending.
