UPDATE: These Shrouds are now showing up at Reebok retailers.
What does the AJ15, the Glove '98, XX8, Shawn Kemp and Reebok all have in common? The Shroud. Bred from the class of '97, this lesser known signature model of the Seattle Supersonics superstar, Shawn Kemp, will make a return for 2015 in all its former glory. Widely misunderstood in its time – and much so still to this date – the Shroud enclosure system is a pinnacle advancement in basketball footwear, enabling the wearer to completely lock down the foot and avoid the situation of loose laces mid-game. EVA sockliners, mesh embedding, zips down the front – these joints are tight! Pencil these into your calendars for a late January 2015 release, and stay tuned for more news to come.
