The Nike SHOX BB4 to Return in 2019

With Vince Carter wearing the Nike SHOX BB4 throughout the 2019 NBA season, it was only a matter of time before we heard news of a re-release.

While this isn’t the first time the SHOX BB4 has returned in Retro form, the shoe has had a bit of a resurgence in popularity due to the nostalgia factor as Vince Carter has been lacing up various colorways the entire season.

According to @street8oy, the original launch colorway of the SHOX BB4 will return August 9. That date can change, but for now we’ll mark our calendars.

Not only will the original launch color be re-releasing, but the pair Carter wore during the 2000 Summer Olympics when he jumped over French center Frederic Weis will as well. @street8oy has stated that this version of the shoe is slated to release on June 29.

Pricing is currently up in the air, but the news is something to be excited about. Many will be hit with nostalgic feels of their own as in the year 2000, the SHOX BB4 was many hoopers weapon of choice.

Share your thoughts on the news of the SHOX BB4 returning and let us know if you plan on grabbing a pair once they’re available.

  1. I still have the house of hoops version from 2012. If they release the white and red or the white with black patent leather, those would be a cop at the right price

    1. Hopefully they keep the original tech in this release. I have the 2012 retros and they stripped out the forefoot zoom and monkey paw on the medial side.

  2. Im excited about this pair. I did not have the chance to have this way back when i was in highschool. I hope this performs well on court & hoping that this have a nice cushion aswell

  3. Yes!!! I have the olympic one retroed about five years back. Good outdoor shoe. KILLER traction indoors. With the right price it’s a cop for me.

  4. I remember when I had the white n red bb4 in high school I brought them shits back the next day. Most uncomfortable shoe to ball in. That metal plate dogged into my ankle left it all cut up and bloody
