UPDATE: With the drop date right on our door step, we're take a revamped look at the beast that is the OG Black Pump. In all its ankle soaring glory, these boots are legit – nuff said! Look for them at all good Bok spots commencing tomorrow, including WISH ATL.
In 1989, the Reebok Pump came out and blitzed the basketball footwear world. Gimmicks were in, from visible air cushioning to shoes that tightened by rotating a dial instead of lacing up, but Reebok trumped 'em all with the basketball-shaped tongue pump and connected bladder that gave you a perfect fit. It was a momentous development that still holds a special place in the hearts of many sneakerheads, and this year marked the 25th anniversary of the OG drop. So, of course Reebok had to bring it back. Along with a stack of other special collaboration releases, the two original colourways are returning, and this black banger is sure to be a big hit. It might be hard to get your hooves into these if you don't act quick, so holler at your nearest Reebok retailer pronto to see if they'll be stocking when they arrive on November 28.
