With the Pump, Reebok has a design playground with seemingly no constraints on what is aesthetically possible. There are many examples of Pumps that push design boundaries, or totally ignore them: the untamed Mita Sneakers x Reebok Insta Pump Fury Camouflage Tiger Camo, the light-up Solebox x Reebok Omni Zone Pump with glowing panels, the graphically confusing Safety Pack; even the “regular” colors of the Spring/Summer 2011 Insta Pump Outdoor pack are pretty wild – and that list only goes back a few months. Now, a lesser seen model – the Dual Pump Runner – keeps the tradition alive. The upper incorporates leather, mesh, and nylon; primarily black, but with an art deco blue pump and lace. The midsole and tongue incorporate the traditional Reebok checkerboard, in black and red – the design inspiration of which is hard to identify. And another Reebok standard – the double stripe – is executed in silver. The theme for this shoe might just be a total disregard for themes; and in that sense it’s a success. Probably not one that you’ll be able to match perfectly to an outfit, but an interesting option. Check the images after the jump. via: SN.
