Hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz and Reebok have teamed up to release the Swizz Beatz Kamikaze" limited edition sneaker on May 13th, 2011.

If the shoe's green (or red), grey and black combination look familiar to you, it’s because the shoe is a reinterpretation of the Reebok Kamikaze II -- the shoe of 90’s NBA star and former dunk champion Shawn Kemp. Reebok plans on releasing only 84 pairs of the Swizz Beatz Kamikaze, with each pair including a numbered tag and an official Swizz Beatz signature. For a limited edition shoe, the Kamikaze is very reasonably priced at $100 USD.

The Swizz Beatz Kamikaze is the first official collaboration between the multi-talented artist and Reebok. He is also the curator of the Reestyle Collective, a group of artists that will produce a wide range of creative content for Reebok including art, music, dance and style.
