Feel, strut, and enjoy the vintage mood with the Reebok Pump Omni II

Reebok brought one of the most celebrated basketball shoes back to the shelves to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Launched in 1989 as basketball footwear, the Reebok Pump Omni Zone 2 became famous when it was seen worn by 1991 Slam Dunk champion Dee Brown during his iconic "No Look Dunk."

People who grew up in the '90s definitely know the importance of the Omni 2 in the sneaker culture in general. It was the silhouette that popularized the Pump technology, a game-changing technology in the world of footwear. 

Sneaker features:

  • Its upper is made of premium, soft leather with a white TPU caging system for support and added protection.
  • It features a corduroy lining that makes this pair more unique and adds a dash of a cozy feel.
  • Found on the midsole is the Hexalite that provides soft and responsive cushioning.
  • On its tongue, Pump technology is displayed that you can adjust according to your preferred fit. 
  • Underneath is the rubber outsole that delivers durability and a reliable grip. 

What is Reebok Pump?

Reebok debuted the Pump mechanism in 1989 as an air bladder system. This tech has an inflatable chamber that you can inflate or deflate for a custom fit around the ankle and entire foot. This mechanism lets the wearer enjoy a snug fit giving more stability and support while playing basketball or simply traversing the urban streets. 

Reebok Pump Omni Zone 2's famous folk: Reebok Pump Omni Lite

Instead of re-introducing the Omni Zone 2 in 2007, Reebok introduced a fresh iteration molded from the classic Omni Zone 2. Dubbed the Reebok Pump Omni Lite, this limited release model features an accurate recreation of the nostalgic bball footwear. After several years, Reebok decided to deliver the Omni Lite in General Release quantities and recreate it in different colors and styles every year.
