Sneakersnstuff x Reebok Kamikaze II “Polkagris”

June 20, 2013 | 4

Get a sweet taste of the latest Sneakersnstuff x Reebok collab!

The guys over at Sneakersnstuff is back at it again with another dope collaboration with Reebok. This time, the Kamikaze II is used as the base.

Dubbed “Polkagris” or “Polka Pig”, this sneaker is inspired by great Swedish entrepreneur Amalia Eriksson. Check out the full details for the inspiration below and look for these to hit SNS on June 26th with a retail price of $130.

The Reebok x Sneakersnstuff Kamikaze II Mid ”Polkagris” takes its inspiration from a great Swedish entrepreneur Amalia Eriksson, who back in the 1850’s cooked up this delicious mint flavoured candy in an attempt to cure her daughters cold. The candy known in Sweden as Polkagris (Polka pig) has ever since become popular all over the world.

Back in 1989 when Bobby Brown was singing about his prerogative and Tone Loc was talking about Wild Things, Shawn Kemp came into the NBA at just 19 years of age and very rapidly got famous for his explosiveness on the court. As the name tells you, the Reebok Kamikaze II was the Reignmans second signature shoe and first came out in 1995, and we are very proud to have been able to work on such an epic sneaker.

To really get that Polkagris feeling on the Reebok x Sneakersnstuff Kamikaze II Mid we of course went with a pretty obvious white and red color combination, but also coating it to give the whole shoe a bit of a marbeled effect – just as a proper Polkagris.

    not bad. I got the Sonics “Reignman” colorway with the rain drops on shoe. SICK! I love them. One guy stopped me and said oh shit that’s not water…lol.. Shit like that Makes a Sneakerheads day!

    Anyways I found that reebok has been setting a new bar when it comes to cushion on the retros. These, ES22 and Iverson questions are SUPER comfy. I even wear them around the house on my hardwood instead of slippers. It’s refreshing to see others wear something else but jordans. JB is slipping…
