Shawn Kemp, aka The Reign Man was a beast back in the day, teaming with the trash talking Gary Payton for alley oops and a high-flying game that would make the AND1 mixtape tour look like a JV game. Kemp’s partnership with Reebok led to some footwear gems along the way, most notably, the Reebok Kamikaze. While most would prefer the loud and attention grabbing combination of the original Kamikaze, which is probably why this predominantly green colorway never made the cut. Reebok Kamikaze SK-40 Shawn Kemp Sample Edition was created back in 2014 with the SK-40 branding on the ankle, its clear these were tied to Shawn Kemp’s days as a Seattle Supersonic. If you’re a die hard fan, you can grab this pair on eBay now.
