The Cam HICKS x Reebok BB4000 II Is Inspired By Family and The DMV

Marco Negrete

Any creative who has worked with a major brand knows about the “Research and Development” (R&D) meetings, where you’re asked to come in so they can “pick your brain.” Creative Director Cam Hicks, who has worked with brands like Louis Vuitton and Stone Island, is familiar with these meetings and used the rollout for his new Reebok BB4000 II to poke fun at the process. In the promotional video, the owner of the HICKS brand travels to Reebok’s Boston Headquarters and is tricked into participating in an R&D meeting filled with industry buzzwords. The video eventually unveils his Reebok BB4000 II colorway, which his family and DMV roots inspire.

Hicks credits Reeboks as a staple growing up in Virginia and Maryland thanks to his family wearing Classics and Allen Iverson’s influence. “It’s going to sound cliche, but family was the driving inspiration for this collab on the BB4000 II,” said Hicks. The colorway pairs Chalk, Orange, and signature HICKS turquoise with a premium leather upper, suede detailing, and a premium leather tongue lining. Additional details include branding on the heel and tongue, a stone-printed footbed, and a message reading ‘Act like you been there before’ on the inside ankle. The HICKS x Reebok BB4000 II is available now at and will see a wider release at Reebok and select retailers on April 5. 


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
