History of Reebok Pump Omni Lite 

The Reebok Pump Omni Lite was originally launched in 1989 but it was only in 1991 NBA slam dunk contest that it got noticed by sneaker fans. Boston Celtics point guard Dee Brown won the slam dunk contest wearing this iconic shoe.  In his signature “No Look Back” dunk, Brown wowed the crowd during the competition by adjusting his Omni Lite’s pumps before doing the stunt.

This seemingly new technology of the Pumps at that time sparked a generation of basketball fans who have considered this footwear trendy and advanced.

Since then, Reebok began releasing retro versions of the shoe and collaborated with a few retailers such as Lemar Dauley, Basquiat, size, BSTN, and Bape for unique colorways of the iconic basketball kicks. This latest version of the Reebok Pump Omni Lite released in 2017 is designed with the classic silhouette updated with modern styling.
