We think it’s safe to say that Packer Shoes might have outdone themselves with this latest pack. Their upcoming Reebok Classics capsule is inspired by the 1996 NBA All Star Game, and specifically by forward Shawn Kemp, who was known for his high flying dunks. Included is an updated version of Kemp’s old ’96 All Star game jersey, as well as a t-shirt, cap, and last but not least, a dope pair of Reebok Kamikaze 2 that matches perfectly! Check out the info from their site below, which details each item:
