Reebok, the legendary Boston-based brand that once reigned supreme in both the sporting and lifestyle arenas, is about to stage an exhilarating comeback. In a move that could only be described as groundbreaking, the basketball immortals Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson have ascended to the prestigious positions of President and Vice President of Reebok Basketball, respectively. And if that weren’t enough to send shockwaves through the industry, Reebok has just pulled off yet another coup by announcing the signing of boxing champion Shakur Stevenson, catapulting him into their ever-expanding roster of elite endorsers.
Now, hold your breath, fellow sneakerheads, because this sensational signing doesn’t mean that Reebok is diving headfirst back into the boxing ring. However, they’ve generously bestowed upon Stevenson a magnificent special edition of their iconic Reebok Boxing Boot High, which took the world by storm in the glorious 2000s. Picture this: a unique mid-cut incarnation adorned with a breathable ballistic mesh upper, luxurious microsuede overlays, an ankle strap fit for champions, and a heat-molded heel counter. But that’s not all. The gum-coated outsole is resplendent with numerous branded embellishments, while Stevenson’s monogram, “SS,” is proudly embroidered with painstaking precision along the heel.
This thrilling partnership is all part of the mesmerizing build-up to Stevenson’s titanic clash against Edwin De Los Santos for the esteemed WBC Lightweight title on November 16th. Hailing from the vibrant city of Newark, New Jersey, Stevenson now stands tall among Reebok’s illustrious lineup of awe-inspiring athletes, which boasts the likes of the unstoppable LSU forward Angel Reese and the indomitable Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields.
While we eagerly count down the days until the grand debut of Stevenson’s custom boxing boots, Reebok and the pugilistic maestro have joined forces to bring forth a sensational collection aptly titled “Move Like Shakur.” Brace yourselves for an assemblage of Stevenson’s handpicked favorite footwear, apparel, and equipment, ready and waiting for you to make that power move and secure your own piece of greatness.
So, my sneaker-savvy comrades and aficionados of the sweet science, mark November 16th in your calendars with bold strokes and stay on high alert for Stevenson’s epic showdown. In the meantime, make sure to immerse yourself in the electrifying “Move Like Shakur” collection and gear up, for Reebok is back in the game, and they’re unleashing their full arsenal to reclaim their rightful throne!
