Reebok Royal BB4500 Hi History
Reebok has been known to always cook up something new to offer to their followers. Because Reebok believes that athletes always want to run faster, Reebok first offered running shoes with spikes. The company, later on, ventured into offering different kinds of shoes. Reebok was the very first shoe company to offer a line that is exclusive to women, and that product catapulted their fame in the shoe market.
Reebok introduced the Reebok Classic line which is composed of lifestyle shoes. It encompasses the Retro Basketball which is an athletic shoe that became fashionable in casual events. 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.
