A forgotten model from Reebok's basketball golden era, the Rafter will soon resurface in original and new colorways.
Famously worn by Sam Cassell and Dee Brown, the Rafter originally released in 1995. While Reebok Basketball was heading in a tech-heavy direction, the Rafter was a simple leather high-top, highlighted by a braided rear lacing system. Below, a sculpted rubber outsole with herringbone zones.
Almost 20 years later, the Rafter is back, bringing with it the features you remember from the original. While we don't have an official release date yet, here's an early look at the colorways you can expect to see in stores soon, including the original black and white pair. Let us know if you're happy about the Rafter's return and keep it lock for updates.
