Rocketing back from the archives with the same high-flying energy that catapulted it into sneaker stardom, the Reebok The Blast returns to the court with a nostalgic nod to the 1996 Houston All-Star game. A silhouette revered for its association with basketball legends Nick Van Exel and Shawn Kemp, The Blast has remained a symbol of late 90s on-court flair. It’s been a long eight years since its 2014 reissue, and now it's time to welcome its second retro release that is beaming with color and history.
Donning an iconic asymmetrical build with overlapping sidewalls, The Blast’s audacious design is ready to make heads turn once again. This edition, dubbed “The Alamo”, tips its hat to the vibrant All-Star Game jerseys worn at the Alamodome in Texas. Swathed in a deep monochrome upper, a fusion of grey and black serves as the backdrop for the vivacious hues that take center stage. Pink, teal, and orange burst forth from the soles, eagerly racing up to grace the heel’s pull tab.
With a tasteful marriage of shadowy tints and lively colors reminiscent of the Packer Shoes x Reebok Kamikaze “Reign On The Alamo,” this iteration of The Blast stands as a jubilant tribute to an unforgettable moment in basketball history.
