Tomorrow sees the return of one of Reebok's all-time classic basketball shoes, the Pump Omni Lite, which was famously worn by Dee Brown in the 1991 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
Dee Brown brought attention to the Reebok Pump system to the casual sneaker fan, as he pumped up his Omni Lites en route to a no-look slam dunk and the 1991 Dunk Contest Championship. Now over twenty years later, the OG Omni Lite returns again in the same colorway Dee dunked in with this version in black leather with white and orange accents, complete with a fully functional Pump system.
Dee Brown's iconic Pump Omni Lite returns Friday, June 14th in limited quantities to select Reebok Classics retailers including Jimmy Jazz, Shoe Palace, and Sheikh Shoes, as well as online directly from Reebok.com. Will you be pumping up a pair of Omni Lites tomorrow?
