Vintage Ad: Glenn Robinson and his Reebok Rail
words & image // Zack Schlemmer
After a steady flow of Reebok's basketball favorites that returned from the vaults last year including the Kamikaze II, Shaq Attaq and Shaqnosis, Reebok Classic is back at it again this year with more of the brand's greatest hits. Up next: The Rail, Glenn Robinson's debut signature shoe. Big Dog's kicks from 1996 continued the brand's unmistakable mid-90's flare with a bold and aggressive design featuring a sweeping "rail" across the upper and visible Hexalite cushioning in the midsole.
In anticipation of the first-ever return of The Rail tomorrow, January 31st, we bring a vintage ad out of the archives featuring Big Dog—making sure you know that you aren't going to stop him from scoring when he gets on the court. Pick up the OG "Bucks" colorway tomorrow, and look for this black/white/red version to be back on the shelves soon from Reebok Classic.
