We have seen some of the great pumps released/rumored.  The original, the Twilight Zone, the Court Victory, the Omnizone, the AXT?  Anyway, why the greatest pump (in my opinion of course) of all is not being released is a shock to me.  While the OG pump was shock and awe to the industry (it was how much?!), the Pump Fury has become a cultural phenomenon (see my counter kicks article).  Point is, a limited run, with some cool stuff thrown in or available, could really ride this wave off good pub and good sales for Reebok lately.  What I am thinking, release 1,994 pairs, charge $200 bucks, include the shoes, keychain, t-shirt, an inflator, and pump booklet.  Perhaps even a laminated 8 1/2 x 11 original print ad.  Make it special, release it to the specialty shops that deserve it, and continue to build excitement and talk about the Pump.  Here are some pics of the shirt, keychain, and some shoe photos to show you just how cool the original model was.  Yes it can break down quicker than the new versions, but besides strengthening the back heel plastic tab, leave it alone.  Collectors aren't going to be running in these, and I could almost promise nobody would wear these enough to break the graphlite bridge.  DO IT REEBOK!

I agree, along with the Kamikaze's as well.  I like what Reebok is doing in a way, holding off on retroing things, keeping the original shoes more rare and special, but you have to capitalize on this type of market, retro shoes sell right now, and Reebok has some shoes in their past that can hold their own against any Nike release.  Another one I would do again in a few years would be the original DMX Run







(Not the original colors but close)

The Furys got from Pacific Place Marathon. Its once in a millionth to get in that mall. 2 sizes left, 10 and 8. The socks are new releases!! All store carries nikes should have them. I saw the socks in Beijing few days ago but they are hella too much!! i forgot they were 79 or 89RMB tho~ and +17% sales tax~ OUCH!

Very nice, I like the Furys but held off myself and bought a hockey jersey instead, ha ha. Maybe some later time I can pick them up

I like that the respect pack has mesh on the front of the shoe, I like mesh on the Furys compared to some of the other materials used

Good to see the Love for one of my all time best designs. Glad you all like the shoe. Unfortunately the original will most likely never be made since the tooling was destroyed when the original factory in Korea went out of business.
