Reebok Reissuing Pumps To Celebrate Their 20th Anniversary

Reebok Pump 20th Anniversary (Image courtesy Acquire)
By Andrew Liszewski

I grew up during the peak of sneaker fanaticism, and the release of the Reebok Pump was akin to Apple unveiling the original Macintosh or the iPhone. It basically blew our grade school minds, and I can’t believe (or refuse to believe) that it’s been 20 years since they were first introduced.

To commemorate the big 2-0 Reebok will start a year-long celebration on November 20 that will first see a re-release of the original Pump basketball shoe, followed by re-releases of other iconic models continuing through 2010. But don’t expect to be able to go into your local Foot Locker to snag a pair. According to Acquire, the shoes will only be available at select retail outlets around the world, including:

atmos (Tokyo), Kasina (Seoul), Juice (Hong Kong), Stolen Riches (Toronto), Espionage (Sydney), KICKS/HI (Hawaii), UNDEFEATED (L.A.), Bodega (Boston), Saint Alfred (Chicago), HUF (San Francisco), Commonwealth (Virginia), Packer Shoes (New Jersey), Size? (London), Sneakersnstuff (Stockholm), Patta (Amsterdam), colette (Paris), Solebox (Berlin), Hanon (Scotland) and 24 Kilates (Barcelona)

Boy I hope my parents buy me a pair!

    Hey Bob, we have to come up with an idea to get rid of the thousands of pump sneakers packed in the warehouse.

    Bob: Why don't we re-release them? Put a flashy tag on them and use words like “anniversary” and “retro”? We'll have sucker…..I mean people lined up to get this cra….fine footwear.

  • mcman

    Anyone that has the word “sexy” in their name must look good with anything on their feet. Except maybe anvils….

    I think it's a neat anniversary item, but I still don't like them. :-p Just my taste was different then everyone else's I suppose.

    Half the time I can't decide if I like re-issues for the ability to get a product again, or if they exist because none of the designers could come up with a new product that they could get managment to approve.
