Good to know
The Reebok Pump Court is available in men’s sizes only. The sneaker is designed with a mid-top. Due to its mid-top, the shoe provides more support and hold compared to low top sneakers. For a customized and locked-in fit, the Pump Court is crafted with Pump technology and a TPU strap.
The design of the Reebok Pump Court is a mixture of the past and the future. Reebok adds its 90s tennis shoe style to the fierce and futuristic look of the shoe that defines the overall aesthetic of the shoe. The Pump Court looks nice with jeans and joggers paired with hoodies or shirts.
The first thing one might notice is the Pump branding found in the middle of the strap on the midfoot. The Pump technology present in the Pump Court features inflatable chambers fitted within the shoe that allows its wearers to adjust the fit by either inflating or deflating the areas of the shoe around the ankle. The TPU strap backs the Pump technology by providing a locked-in fit. The upper is made up of mixed materials, which is responsible for giving the shoe a textured look.
Reebok, although the family business started running as early 1895, was not founded until 1958. At this time, the family business was taken over by Joe and Jeff Foster, grandson of Joseph William Foster. Reebok got its name from “Rhebok”, which was a type of African antelope.
In 1989, the brand’s signature technology, which was found in the Reebok Pump, was released. It was the first shoe to have an internal inflation mechanism to allow a unique fitting cushion, by either inflating or deflating, that provides a locked-in fit. The Reebok Pump is a line of athletic shoes that features the Pump technology.
One of the brand’s latest products is the Reebok Pump Court. The sneaker has taken inspiration from Steven Smith’s prototypes made in 1995. However, this sneaker was never intended to be produced and only sit as a prototype for years until it was shown on the runway during Paris Fashion Week as part of the Juun. J AW 2020 collection. The Pump Court is also noticeable for its likeness to the Instapump Fury.
