Reebok 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.
The BB5600 let you know they were a Reebok shoe from both sides and the heel. Nike had a shoe called the Terminator
same time, which featured the "Nike" name prominently in the heel view.
