To be brutally honest, the last time any major changes were made to Reebok‘s roster of athletes, Allen Iverson was still playing in the NBA and Reebok was the world’s third largest sports equipment brand. Now, what was once the oldest athletic shoes manufacturer will be reviving its basketball footwear program with the introduction of Reebok Q96 and Reebok Pumpspective Omni.
Designed with inputs from players and from the timeless forms of Question Mid and Pump Omni Lite, the Q96 and Pumpspective Omni will feature many of the already familiar elements. But don’t call them “retro” since each gone through a set of benchmarks as a way to ensure the designs perform optimally. The Q96 ($115) and Pumpspective Omni ($125) will be making their first retail appearances at Foot Locker, Finish Line, Champs Sports, Jimmy Jazz and Reebok.com starting on Friday, November 1st. You also catch a glimpse of them in action this NBA season as few of the pros, including rookie Nerlens Noel, debut these heritage-inspired performance editions.
Release Date: November 1st, 2013 (Friday)
