How Many Knicks Fans Want These Reebok Pump Twilight Zone “New York” Sneakers?
Don’t look now, New York Knicks fans…but your team might actually be headed to the second round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs! For the last decade or so, Knicks fans really haven’t had a whole lot to celebrate because, well, the Knicks haven’t really been all that good. But, thanks to the efforts of guys like Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith, the 2012-13 Knicks team appears to be a force to be reckoned with. It’ll be interesting to see if they can keep things up once they make it to the second round—er, make it, if they make it to the second round—but, for now, life is good for Knicks fans. And it’s about to get even better…
To help the Knicks celebrate their recent success, Swizz Beatz and Reebok have decided that now is the perfect time to re-release the classic Reebok Pump Twilight Zone sneaker in a “New York” colorway. The Twilight Zone sneaker features patent leather on the toe box, a mostly-white upper with hits of blue on the tongue, and an orange midsole to make it look like the Knicks official team sneaker. We don’t know if any of the guys on the Knicks will actually step out in these—most of them seem to ride with Nike or adidas—but if they do, we’re sure the sneaker blogs would take notice. These are fresh.
If you’re a Knicks fan looking for a pair of sneakers to rock with your jersey—or you’re just someone who can appreciate the old school look of the Twilight Zone sneakers—Reebok will be dropping these next Friday. Unfortunately, they will only be available in limited quantities through Reebok retailers and Reebok themselves. But we’re sure that a lot of sneakerheads out there will be preoccupied trying to snatch up a pair of Air Jordan V “Grapes” next weekend. So take advantage of that and make sure you get your hands on a pair of these. You won’t be disappointed.
