Reebok Kamikaze II “Acid Rain”
One of the most exciting hoops stars of the 90’s is continually celebrated with every new release of the Reebok Kamikaze II but this Halloween version has taken an exciting form with “Acid Rain.” These stylish kicks were once worn, in original form, by SuperSonic’s player, Shawn Kemp, in his prime but this drop only shares a skeleton of the same shoe. The glow-in-the-dark panels has another aspect and adds another dimension to the Reign Man’s Kamikaze series. The “Acid Rain” will be available at UBIQ, in-store and online starting Friday, October 25, 2013.
Reebok is using the motto “Trick or Treat, Check my Feet,” to promote this release but once you turn the lights out on the Acid Rain, you won’t need a catch phrase or motto. The ‘regular’ mode of these shoes are very unassuming with a standard white upper on the zig-zag pattern that made this shoe so popular. Underneath, the sole is colored in an electric yellow with black accents. But the shoe comes to life when the lights dim. The eye-catching “Acid Green” hue of the shoe’s glow form excites and electrifies throughout the whole upper, save for some black accents on the midsole, laces and branding that disappears into the darkness. These glow-in-the-dark panels reveal this issue to be one of the boldest looks for the series, yet.
As stated above, the skeleton and technology in the shoe has remained consistent. They aren’t just an interesting article but they feature top-of-the-line performance details that won’t leave you hanging on the court. The cushioning beneath the feet is made of lightweight Hexalite cushioning in the forefoot and Ultra Hexalite in the heel to help absorb and all shock. The mid-cut silhouette of the shoe gives you adequate ankle support but still allows for plenty of movement.
The timeless style combined with the hardwood performance that the shoe provides, and the added aspect of how the shoe radiates with that eerie Acid Green glow when plunged into darkness makes this shoe a shocking and provoking drop. The Reebok Kamikaze II “Acid Rain” will be release on Friday 10/25 at UBIQ. Details to come.
