Good to know

Being a model that was rooted in basketball, expect that its fit will be on point. The full-grain leather upper and high-top construction are always a classic combination attributed to the sport. The Reebok BB 5600 Premium is offered in men's sizes ranging from 7- 13.

Keeping up with today's trends, the Reebok BB 5600 Premium style spells nothing but a throwback to the 80's basketball courts. To parallel its freshness, wearing it with athleisure items is best. Ticking it with pants or wearing it with joggers would show off its silhouette. More so, an all-black outfit will be excellent in showing off the striking scarlet detailing on the upper. 

Even though there are tweaks infused on this premium edition, the nostalgia brought by these sneakers is still its unbeatable feature. The Reebok BB 5600 Premium basketball sneakers do not only revive Reebok fans, but even those who are simply on the hunt for a unique retro can indeed find appreciation for this pair. 

Before the emergence of footwear titans like Adidas and Nike, there was a brand that reigned called Reebok. The brand name was adopted in 1958 but was primarily founded in 1895 by J.W. Foster who introduced one of the first pairs of track spikes. 

Building its legacy and tradition that revolves around athletic footwear, Reebok continued to produce spikes throughout the 60s and 70s.

With Paul Fireman taking over the brand in 1979, Reebok widened its audience from only in England to the United States. The expansion also called for extensive product ranges. Still tackling the performance-based footwear, Reebok delivered products that cater to other sports including basketball. 

One of their releases is the Reebok BB 5600, a basketball shoe that was flaunted during the 80s. While it did have some glory days, Reebok has been reviving some of its silhouettes and interpreting it as a lifestyle model. The Reebok BB 5600 Premium, for example, is one of the versions made. 

  • The Reebok BB 5600 Premium shoes can be purchased for $90.
  • Currently, there are two colorways available for these: a black/scarlet and chalk/black.
