The basketball court has long been a place to show out athletically as well as sartorially. Check out the best basketball shoes of the 2020/2021 season — it proves that the hardwood flex has never been healthier.

Since the days of Converse Chuck Taylors, basketball shoes have proven their style by crossing effortlessly over into the lifestyle arena. But while it feels like there’s a new, more technical style every week, sometimes it’s worth looking to the classics to make your mark. Enter Reebok. Reebok basketball shoes typified the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, and their retro charm has lost no appeal whatsoever.

From Shaq to Allen Iverson, Reebok has represented some of basketball’s biggest names which should put it in the conversation with the best basketball shoes brands, right? Well, while names like New Balance, Puma, and Under Armour have broken into the modern NBA by signing stars like Kyle Kuzma, Kawhi Leonard, and Steph Curry, Reebok has taken a backseat. Its designs, though, haven’t. It’s hard to find kicks with as much retro appeal as the Reebok basketball shoes collection.

So, to shine a light on one of the most underrated basketball shoes brands around, we’ve rounded up our favorite Reebok basketball shoes which are sure to take you back to the days when Shaq was breaking backboards.
