Celebrating 25 years of this iconic model which kick started an arms race in basketball footwear technology, Bodega creates the 1989 Reebok Pump, designed around the golden era of basketball culture. It is not the first time Reebok collaborates with big names of the fashion industry. This time, the trainers which marked back then the 1989 year and from since then, symbolize the basket culture and rap music, feature a blend of suede, nubuck and leather and with all those textures at play it’s easy to get away with a subdued colorway. Maroon, grey, black and gum are all included in this fall friendly palette and the colorblocking really pushes the look over the edge.
They are set to release at Bodega on November, 15th and you can probably find them at other shops in the Reebok Certified Network shortly after and online too.
