Memories - Reebok BB5600

Reebok BB5600 classic basketball sneaker: white leather with red and blue trimReebok entered the US basketball shoe market around 1986. As I remember their original entries, they were three high-top models referred to by the codes "BB4600", "BB5600,"and "BB6600". To me, it seems that the BB6600 was promptly ignored by the sneaker buying public; the BB4600 was the most popular, followed by the BB5600.

Another colorway known to exist was black leather with white trim. Contemporary Christian music artist Paul Smith was wearing a pair of them on the front and back covers of his 1988 project, No Frills.
