It has been known that the man behind that late 90’s Ruff Ryders sound was working with Reebok since last year. And the first release from the collection is dropping on Friday May the 13th . However with design inspiration from both Shawn Kemp and Allen Iverson’s Reebok signature models, the sneaker comes in shades of grey with red contrast elements.
Like I said before the release date is Friday the 13th of may with only 84 signed pairs available at a select few shops.

Although I’m not a big fan of reebok this sneaker is actually hot. It’s not one to stand out in line a week for but it could be included in a collection as one to own for the sole purpose of saying years from now “I got Swizz shoe”. It seems to me that reebok is quick to allow rappers to design a shoe under their name. Look at the lines Jay-Z “S.Dot”,50cent “G-Unit” and now Swizz Beatz with the Kamikaze.
