Reebok announced last week that it would be renaming its “Kamikaze” model of basketball sneakers. Originally debuting in 1994 as the signature sneaker for Seattle SuperSonics forward Shawn Kemp, the zig-zag upper perfectly encapsulated Kemp’s ferocious, high-flying style.

“As Reebok continues to grow alongside the ever-evolving tapestry of global cultures in which it is so deeply rooted,” the company said in a statement. “The brand will formally rename the Kamikaze model.”

The Kamikaze was a pillar of Reebok’s basketball segment during a particularly booming period of the mid-’90s which saw the brand represent everyone from Shaquille O’Neal to Allen Iverson. In honor of the Kamikaze’s place in the basketball sneaker canon, we kick off this week’s list with a special edition of its most popular iteration, as well as many more from that classic era in hoops fashion.

No other retailer has the same breadth and depth of selection as Grailed. From Italian Uptempos to Carmines (and everything in between)–in no particular order, these are our picks for Grailed Sneaker Stories of the Week.
