While the NBA 2K the series has become a mainstay in modern homes, it could be said that basketball video games peaked with the release of NBA jam. The iconic 1990s arcade game still puts a smile on hoops fans of all ages, and Reebok is teaming up with Nice Kicks to honor the game’s legacy through a pair of head-turning Kamikaze II Lows.
The reborn ’90s shoe features a deep black suede upper and 3M overlays dressed in a static paint pattern. It’s then touched up with hints of teal and purple, giving it that iconic ’90s Charlotte Hornets look that’s been all the rage lately. The shoe is finished with an embroidered red Reebok logo to the front and sits on a semi-translucent outsole for an icy touch.
Ancient NBA jam players will be pleased to see Shawn Kemp’s in-game attributes imprinted on the insoles of the sneakers – the former Seattle Supersonic, whose signature shoe was the original Kamikaze in his heyday, was quite overpowered in-game, serving a fan favorite to this day. Finally, the special edition colorway is completed with a black 3M tongue and Kemp’s signature to the medial heel.
In the lyrics of NBA jamfrom the famous in-game announcer, these colorful kicks are on fire. The Nice Kicks x Reebok Kamikaze Low II ‘Jam’ is available now from the Nice Kicks online store for $120.
