UPDATE: So we heard along the grapevine this hot piece of hardcourt sole slipped through some sneaking fingers, stress not! Overkill and Titolo have size runs available right now, and some tasty new photos to go with em. Get on it!
In a current state where everything seems to be getting slapped with a 'retro' title, Reebok shows that they do not take the term lightly, as we take an in-depth look at the Reebok Pump Battleground Blacktop retro pack. For those lucky enough to walk the world in a pair of these original puppies, you will understand the gravity of this release. Sitting pretty in white and black based options, the real story with these street-warriors is the tribal traits that hold down the rear. Especially enticing is the black joints, which boast purple suede supplementing around the collar, encasing barreling blue waves of rawness. Don't let the concrete turn down the flayvah on your feet, the Battleground Blacktop is back to claim its title of kings of the courts. Find both editions readily available from May 9, via select stockists including Sneaker Politics and Rise.
