A classic ’80s basketball sneaker — which came with a sizable outrigger for lateral stability way back then — the Reebok BB 5600 is available once again for a new generation.

Back from 1986, the Reebok BB 5600 has been re-released in two colorways — White/Collegiate Royal and White/Black — for $90 each.

Originally worn by the Celtics’ Danny Ainge and Dennis Johnson, the BB 5600 features a supple leather upper, padded tongue and collar, and a traditional lace closure. The looping side panels flaunt vintage Reebok branding while the shoe rides atop a durable rubber outsole.

Now called the Reebok BB 5600 Archive, the shoe is available now at FinishLine.com for $90.

  1. I already ordered my pair of the black/white! This was the first Reebok I can remember being worn by NBA players and started my love for mid 80’s to early 90’s Reebok basketball shoes. I started wear testing for Reebok in 1990 and was a part of testing the Twighlight Zone Pumps, the first Battleground Pumps and some of the initial Above The Rim branded Reebok basketball shoes. Wearing a size 14 now (I wore a 12 when I tested) it is hard to find any of the retro Reebok basketball shoes in my size. I’m really excited to see them when they arrive at the end of this week!
