The outdoor courts have thawed out, meaning it’s finally the time of the year when everyone can hoop outside, and RBK is celebrating with the retro return of the classic Reebok Blacktop Collection. Directly associated with the ’90s street ball golden age, the Blacktop Collection were originally designed specifically for the concrete courts. With the bold toughness to match, the shoes transitioned into style icons as well. Now two of the most notable models from the line return in original form with the Blacktop Boulevard and Blacktop Battleground. The Boulevard is the slimmer silhouette with Blacktop stamped on the tongue, while the Battleground features RBK’s famous Pump lockdown. Both of the revisited renditions return in a black and white-based colorway, jolted with the loud colors from the era. Get any of the quartet when they release in limited quantities May 9th at key retailers Jimmy Jazz, Expressions, Shiekh, City Gear, Villa, DTLR, Reebok.com.
