Did You See That The Reebok Pump Paydirt Mid Was Just Resurrected Out Of Nowhere?

Don’t you just love when sneaker companies decide to bring a sneaker back from the dead out of nowhere? One day you’re sitting around wondering why you didn’t buy a couple extra pairs of such-and-such a sneaker back in the day so that you would have them now. And the next…BAM. They’re back. It doesn’t happen very often, since sneaker companies like to roll out sneakers and give them a proper release date in order to drum up interest in them. But every now and then, a company will just decide, “Oh, what the hell? Let’s drop these tomorrow and see what happens!”

It kind of feels like that’s what happened with the Reebok Pump Paydirt Mid. These turf sneakers from back in the day (they were originally released in 1992) were the absolute last thing on our minds earlier this week, especially with Reebok lining up so many other sneaker releases throughout the month of August. And then, well, BAM. There they were. Pictures of the black/blue/white sneakers were all over the Internet and they were even available through a couple of Reebok retailers. We were surprised—pleasantly surprised—but surprised nonetheless. We really didn’t think that Reebok had any plans to release these.

That being said, we’re glad that they did. With fall right around the corner (we know, can you believe it?), a good turf sneaker like the Pump Paydirt Mid is going to be essential. It’s durable. It looks great. And at just $110, it’s cheaper than a lot of the other turf sneakers out there. So if you’re interested in picking up a pair—or maybe two, just in case we don’t see these again for awhile?—check your Reebok retailer. They officially hit stores today.

What do you think about the Reebok Pump Paydirt Mid making a surprise appearance? Do you think that more sneaker companies should do what Reebok just did and surprise people with sneakers? Will you be picking a pair of these up? Check out some more images of the Pump Paydirt Mid below and then let us know your thoughts on them.
