Reebok was one of the biggest companies in the early 90’s are far as showcasing new innovative technology in their sneakers. The Pay-Dirt was introduced in 1992 as a training sneaker for such big name athletes as Emmit Smith and Frank Thomas, both whom ended up getting signature shoes with Reebok. The combination of great colors, materials and different textures make these very admirable not to mention the pump technology that has rapidly shot its way back into the market. As part of their Pre-season Collection, Reebok will be releasing these trainers once again in August 2008. No retail price is set as of yet.
The people at Silas teamed up with Reebok to revamp one of their classics. The shoe comes in all black with gold accents on the tongue and a yellow bottom sole. It is covered with black faux-croc skin that provides a very sleek yet raw feel. There is a very hard-to-catch Silas logo on the side of the shoes. This is a pair that will stand out in any crowd.
First came the Dub Zero. Second, the Spiz’ike. A third time is no surprise from Jordan Brand. The latest hybrid from the Jordan camp is the 6 Rings model. This shoe is a clash of every sneaker His Airness wore while stacking up those Championship rings in the 90’s for the Chicago Bulls, not to mention some of Designer Tinker Hatfield’s best work. We can clearly see a mixture of the Jordan VI, VII, VIII and XI, XII, XIII. The first color way to release will be a Concord AJXI inspired masterpiece with another Black/Red (pictured) version in full production form set to release after. Expect these to hit Jordan Accounts starting November.
