You don’t have to be Jordan or LeBron to make a show your own. See, Celtics guard Dee Brown gave basketball—and sneakers—a moment so iconic that he will forever be synonymous with the footwear he chose to rock that day. The scene: 1991 Slam Dunk Contest. The dunk: No-Look. The shoe: Reebok Pump Omni Lite. He pumped them up, dunked the dunk and took home the hardware, engraving the image of his Pumps soaring through the lane into memories on onto posters everywhere. Says Brown of that moment, via Reebok: “To this day I’m identified with one shoe and one shoe only – the Reebok Pump.”
Reebok is bringing back Brown’s iconic sneaker, as the Pump Omni OG will hit key retailers and Reebok.com for $115 on Friday, June 14.
