Reebok’s “The Pump” was a line of high-top basketball shoes released on November 24, 1989. At the time of release, The Pump cost $170, the highest priced sneaker on the market by $70. The model quickly became popular in the 1990s. The artist Gary Simmons immortalized the shoe in his 1991 piece titled “Pump It Up”, featuring bronzed Reebok sneakers on a plexiglass shelf.
