Editor’s Notes: Dime is following its recent Kamikaze II Low collaboration with another release alongside Reebok. For this particular foray, the Montreal outfit has chosen to reimagine the BB 4000.

The Reebok BB 4000 is an outdoor basketball sneaker from the late ’80s and early ’90s that has since transitioned to more of a lifestyle model. Here, we find it dressed in two colorways, one with a brown suede base and another predominantly done up in white leather.

Dime’s BB 4000 collab harkens back to a botched restoration attempt of the Ecce Homo (Behold the Man), a 1930s painting depicting Jesus wearing a crown of thorns. The artwork has been transferred onto the tongue tag on each pair of BB 4000s.

Dime and Reebok have yet to officially announce the BB 4000 project, although retailer BSTN currently has a release scheduled for January 1, 2021.
