Reebok Basketball has recently shaken things up by appointing the larger-than-life Shaquille O’Neal as the President and the legendary Allen Iverson as the Vice President. These two powerhouses are poised to revolutionize the brand and take it to incredible new heights. But brace yourselves sneakerheads, because that’s not the only exciting news from Reebok – they are also set to pay tribute to one of their most iconic basketball shoes from the ’90s: the Reebok Pump Vertical.
The Reebok Pump Vertical shot to fame alongside the hilarious Marlon Wayans in the movie “Above the Rim”, and also graced the feet of the mesmerizing Penny Hardaway in “Blue Chips”. Now, as it celebrates its 30th anniversary, this legendary sneaker is making a glorious comeback at the close of October.
The “Above The Rim” capsule collection is a nod to Reebok’s undeniable impact during the golden era of basketball culture. Leading the charge is the illustrious Pump Vertical, sporting the same sleek “Black/White” colorway that Bugaloo rocked in the film. With jet-black synthetic nubuck overlays and crisp white accents, this shoe captures the essence of ’90s basketball style in all its glory. And let’s not forget the classic ATR embroidered branding on the heel and tongue, as well as the vintage Pump technology that completes this iconic look.
Sneakerheads, mark your calendars and get ready to spend some serious cash, because the “Above The Rim” collection is dropping on October 27th, with the Pump Vertical retailing for a cool $160. But don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging. Feast your eyes on the highly detailed imagery of this sneaker masterpiece while you wait in anticipation.
