Feb. 9, 2023: On the 32nd anniversary of Dee Brown’s iconic no-look dunk in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest — which helped introduce Reebok Pump technology to the masses — the brand revealed its debut “Pump Universe” footwear collection.

Chapter one features the Question Pump ($180), the Shaq Victory Pump ($180) and the Legacy Lifter 3 Pump ($220). The Question Pump, according to Reebok, answers the question, “What if Allen Iverson was a dunk contest champ?” To provide the answer, the brand reimagined Iverson’s first signature shoe with uppers reminiscent of the Pump Omni Zone 2 that Brown wore during the dunk contest and a hybrid “Q” x Dee Brown no-look dunk logo. As for the Shaq Victory Pump, Reebok answered the question, “What if Shaq battled Michael Chang at Wimbledon?” This look blends Shaquille O’Neal’s first signature shoe with nods to the Court Victory upper, midsole and outsole, and features new “RBK” branding and a revised Shaq tennis logo. The Reebok “Pump Universe” Legacy Lifter 3 Pump is available now via Reebok.com, and the Question Pump and the Shaq Victory Pump will release Feb. 17 on Reebok.com and with the Foot Locker family of brands.
