Upgraded version of the BB4600

In 1986, Reebok introduced their basketball silhouette named BB4600. It was such a big hit that almost all high school students you see in the hallway during that time were wearing BB4600 with their acid washed jeans.

In 2004, Reebok released an upgraded version of the BB4600. They launched the Royal BB4500 Hi which features a time-tested performance. It is a basketball shoe that contains a quality leather upper that provides comfort to its wearers. 

It also has an abrasion-resistant rubber outsole that gives good traction. The high-cut design with padded tongue, prominent Reebok branding and mesh tongue made this such a hit to players who seek comfort and support while playing basketball.
