While this past August’s “Remember the Alamo” Time Capsule paid homage to Shawn Kemp’s participation in the classic 1996 NBA All-Star Game, this iteration of the Reebok Kamikaze II Mid draws it’s inspiration from iconic Chili Pepper used as logo for that weekend’s festivities.
Taking a more literal approach to the nightshade family member, the “Chili Pepper” Kamikaze II Mid is constructed using a mix of red suede with orange full grain leather overlays along the upper, heal and tongue. Instead of going with the traditional stem green, lime green accents were applied to the co-branded vector logo, alternate shoe laces and to give the shoe that extra kick.
Additional details include the reign man-font “1996″ stitching below the laces with Packer Shoes x Reebok “Chili Pepper” Ortholite insoles for additional comfort.
Look for the Packer Shoes x Reebok Kamikaze II Mid “Chili Pepper” to launch exclusively in-store and online Friday, December 13th.
