Return of the Instapump OG

Reebok Instapump is Reborn For 2019

“At the time, some people thought the Instapump Fury OG was an affront to everything that running and performance was about, because it was that different. And to this day, you either get it or you don’t. No apologies. No compromise.” – Steven Smith

We admit it: in 1994, the Instapump wasn’t for everybody. A running shoe that was completely lace-less, missing a huge chunk of its midsole, and stuffed with every bit of bleeding-edge footwear tech the early 90s had to offer? That was always going to be the kind of sneaker that you either “got”… or you didn’t.

Meet us in 2019, and despite how many contemporary hype sneaker designs take inspiration from the Instapump, the honest truth is that there are plenty of people who still don’t get it. Twenty-five years later, the Instapump’s silhouette, features, and performance quality feel just as bold as ever. This year, we introduce the reborn edition of the Instapump Fury for 2019: the Instapump OG .

Don’t call it an update: the Instapump OG is the same sneaker that blew people’s minds in 1994, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Pioneering in its technology, rebellious in its aesthetics, the reborn Instapump is the essence of Reebok’s early 90s vision to create a truly essentialist sneaker. Every layer of the Instapump’s material has a purpose and a reason for being—and it’s hard to improve on that. The future was then—and now it’s back again.

The Instapump OG will be available on April 5th on Reebok.com.

Kareem Bunton’s Creating a Scene in Brooklyn

Kareem Bunton is a veteran of the NYC nightlife having romped around at revered spots such as Mr. Fongs, VON, Union Pool and even Max Fish. He’s also got musical collaborations with Run the Jewels, Prefuse 73, and TV on the Radio under his belt. Now he’s loading up all of his experience in the limelight and taking it to a refreshing venue in Bushwick.

New York nightlife has found a new breeding place in Brooklyn, so it’s no surprise Bunton’s World Famous is taking root there. BWF is embracing an unexpected vibe of a Tangier hotel bar – obviously one enticing to the young urban “cool kids” ready to relive their ‘90s dreams.

“What I like best about the’90s scene,” he says, “was that it didn’t really matter what you had in your pocket or what you did in the daytime. Looking good, being a great dancer, or just having a lovely personality were often enough to get you through the door. Building a space is easy, creating a scene is not. To do this we are attempting to build a sense of community by hiring old school DJ’s and youngsters.”

The cozy 1400 square foot space will be importing the Tangier’s tropical vibes with drinks that’ll make you mistake Brooklyn for a sultry tiki bar on the beach, high in contrast to the mainstream cocktail lounge. Lucas Moran of Mr. Fongs will be constructing the menu, “Think flavored daiquiris, hurricanes, rum runners,” says Bunton. “It’s usually my preference to keep cocktails simple and quick to make. Waiting 10 minutes for a drink while listening to an unsolicited speech about botanicals is not my idea of a good time.”

In a time where emphasizing unity and equality is pertinent, Bunton’s mission is to bring together the diverse community of artists and fashionistas into a memorable night of dancing reality away to old-school hip-hop.

Remaining unconventional and consistent with his exotic theme, Bunton says, “We are going to structure the schedule by genre rather than promoters or weekly residents. Different DJs will be able to share their interpretations of reggae, afrobeat, nuyorican soul.”

In addition to creating a unique and sexy scene, Buton’s World Famous also has a captivating retail element made up of t-shirts and snapback hats flush with the classic Bunton’s logo for the stylish enthusiasts of the scene to rock.

Debuting during New York Fashion Week on Friday, February 15th at 1005 Broadway, Bunton’s World Famous is a venue to explore for those ready to delve into a sultry salvation.

Reebok Classic Launches New ‘Ready Now’ Campaign

Reebok Classic is taking it back to the ‘90s with the launch of the new Pyro, the first sneaker silhouette to be highlighted as part of the brand’s all new ‘Ready Now’ campaign. The 90s was a time when individuals dared to challenge the sartorial status quo, pushing creative expression to new heights in order to express their identity. ‘Ready Now’ embodies the bold creative expression of the 90s.

The ‘Ready Now’ campaign launches with Kabrina Adams, style outlier and frontwoman of the all-female skate crew The Skate Kitchen. Throughout the campaign imagery, Kabrina showcases how she brings her singular, downtown, non-conformist style to the Pyro. “I don’t like being labeled,” Kabrina says, “I don’t wanna do what I’m supposed, to do I want to do what I want to do.”

Tapping into Reebok Classic’s unparalleled heritage, the Pyro is a true original. Rereleased for the first time since its launch in 1992, the runner enables the creative freedom of the wearer, with an unapologetic design that represents a striking vision of retro sports style. From the same running family as the Aztrek, the Pyro is known for its notable circular design details and was one of the first models of the 90s to feature Hexalite technology in the heel, offering maximum cushioning and shock absorption-without adding weight.

Pryo is available now on Reebok.com and retails for $80.

Reebok Announces #SplitFrom Campaign

In continued anticipation of the launch of the new Sole Fury silhouette, Reebok announced the new #SplitFrom campaign.

Sole Fury and the #SplitFrom campaign is inspired by the creation of “Split Cushioning,” an innovation developed in the 90’s that radically split from conventional design by removing a piece of a shoe’s midsole. It was a calculated innovation with a bold look, and 25 years later, its influence is seen on feet across culture from the gym to the street.

The new campaign features six visionary young creatives who embody the same forward-thinking spirit as the sneaker: to #SplitFrom the pack and redefine culture. Collectively, the result is an exclusive Zine—a physical book that embodies the campaign that was both shot by and features all six subjects.
