Reebok has confirmed the official rerelease of its Pump Omni Zone II basketball sneaker notably adorned in ’91 by rookie high-flyer Dee Brown as he soared to a dunk contest title with his iconic “No Look” dunk, effectively catapulting “Pump” into the mainstream.
On February 9, 1991, rookie point guard Dee Brown stepped onto the hardwood in front of a buzzing crowd. Approaching half court and sizing up the rim with a ball in hand and the attention of fans all over the world, what he did next would galvanize an industry-wide innovation race that forever changed the trajectory of sneaker history.
“I always planned on pumping them up before my first dunk,” commented the 12-year basketball veteran. “Not only did the “Pump” fit the shoes to my feet, but it was such a cool idea that I wanted to see how the crowd would react when I brought it to life.”
30 years later, Reebok is bringing back Pump Omni Zone II for the first time in its true high-cut design worn by Dee Brown. The silhouette is headlined by its highly-recognizable orange dimpled “Pump” button and custom-fit air bladder extending downward from a futuristic rubberized tongue. Seated atop its retro multicolor outsole is the classic black/white/orange layered upper built from the ‘90s blacktop with the game’s physicality in mind. TPU overlays advance the wearer’s quickness, while adding durability and style to the gritty design.
