Juun.J Inflate Three Reebok Pump Omni Zone 2 ColabsRelease: 19 August 2021
Korean fashion label Juun.J are continuing their long-running relationship with Reebok, which dates back to a prescient runway-meets-sneakers collaboration in 2008. In 2021, couture meets kicks once again, this time on the Pump Omni Zone 2, confirming Juun.J’s particular preference for inflatable sneakers, as recently evidenced by their Instapump Fury colab. The colab has again opted for minimalist luxury by way of tonal colours and premium materials.
Riffing off the Pump Omni Zone 2’s OG leather build, Juun.J add a luxurious touch with vachetta-style uppers in monochromatic finishes of ‘Wild Brown’, ‘Footwear White’, and black. The details are decadent, including perforated toe boxes, tongues and mid panels; glossy ankle and forefoot plastic lace reinforcement straps; stamped lateral heel counter branding; rawhide laces; and a new oversized plastic heel pull featuring Juun.J’s logo. This interesting addition adds a futuristic touch to a decidedly old-school sneaker all the way from 1991. And while it’s unlikely many sneaker and fashion heads will be trying to recreate the famous Dee Brown No-Look Dunk from 30 years ago in these Pumps, this cool colab will look just as good on feet and feeds.
The Juun.J x Reebok Pump Omni Zone 2 will release directly from Reebok and Juun.J, plus selected retailers, from August 19.
