Quality top notch. I love how they experiment with different materials on this shoe. This silhouette can take any colors IMO. I was a little disappointed that the color hues are a little brighter than I would like but some may like the way the colors pop.
I would have liked these to be more limited. Reebok more colors with smaller releases would be keep things fresh.
I was a little weary of a retro inspired shoe since the original great and maybe the best looking shoe of the 90's. I was surprised when these came out of the box. The first surprise is how high quality they look especially in the darker colors. The tongue doesn't have a lot of padding but this is a perfect area to shed weight IMO. It is there to protect you from the laces. Cushion is a issue because the foam is dense. It does break in eventually. The heel support is great for a lightweight shoe and you don't slip out like in the original Q. Overall a 8.5/10 A lot of thought went into these. They deserve a spot in your rotation.
Fits a little narrow for me. Can be worn with laces loose due to the PUMP and good support. Main selling point is the Cordura fabric upper which is breathable but durable. There is no substitute for leather to protect your forefoot but this stuff works almost as well. Cushion could be better it is a little firm and needs a lot of break-in time but these are more for casual wear anyways. Overall 8/10

Shaqnosis OG - Youth
Reebok Classic unveils a new model made specifically for the ladies, the candy pink/silver Shaqnosis. The sporty-chic iteration of Shaq’s signature shoe is a soon-to-be staple in every female sneakerhead’s closet this fall.
Impressed that Reebok was able to make a shoe like this in the 90's. The leather bands are neat and even on my pair. Forget the one YouTube video about Reebok quality. The craftsmanship is top notch. The leather was similar to the quality on the Answer IV re release. Comfort is that 90's feel with tons of support and cushioning. Get one if you can.
Perfect colorway for the summertime. Quality is very impressive. There must be four kinds of high quality materials; suede, nu buck, leather rubber. Stitching are impeccable. Need to be seen to be believed. This is how shoes used to be made kids.
From his ferocious dunks to his legendary personality, Shaquille O’Neal shaped the game in ways no other player ever did. His larger than life play inspired a shoe as big as the man that wore them: The Shaq Attaq.
Reebok continues to impress with quality for price. Missed out on the white on whites but the black and pink as clean as colorways come. You can feel the DMX air go to the fore and aft of the shoe which IMO is the best cushioning system ever made,. This is a shoe for mostly long distance/cross country runners. You may not want to sprint in these.
The Kamikaze II is a cool looking update of the incredibly successful original. It features the support of a mid-cut design, and the lightweight cushioning of Hexalite in the forefoot and Ultra Hexalite in the heel.
Best Reebok Retro Yet. Lightweight like today's shoe with a ton of support. Not groundbreaking in its day this is a shoe that I appreciate now that I am older for its construction and its unique design
I am comparing this shoe to the ultralite pumps. These are superior in cushioning and stability to the ultralites. These are serious basketball shoes while the ultralites are more for casual wear. I would rank these shoes with a 3rd gen MJ shoe in terms of looks for the era.
Reebok please make more color options available for the customs!
