Following this month's return of the Shaqnosis, the next release from Reebok's famed 50/50 "Mobius" Collection will be the Big Hurt, the signature model former major league slugger Frank Thomas wore in 1996.
One of the most popular players of his day, Thomas had one of his finest seasons in '96, batting .349 with 134 RBIs and 40 home runs. He was also named an All-Star for the fourth time.
Like other recent Reebok retros, the Big Hurt returns pretty much as you remember it. Alternating black and white panels, unique CMEVA midsole and an excessive amount of branding that somehow just works for the shoe's design.
Showcased at Bread & Butter Berlin, the Big Hurt is due out in its original Black/White and White/Black colorway as part of the Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. Let us know if you're excited about this Reebok classic's return and stick with Sole Collector for release updates.
