This Video Explains Why Reebok Decided To Roll Out The Q96 & Pumpspective Omni Sneakers
By now, there’s a pretty good chance that you have heard about what Reebok is doing for the new basketball season. Rather than roll out a brand-new lineup of basketball sneakers to see what works and what doesn’t, Reebok is rolling out a couple of sneakers that they know will work based on their past success. Those sneakers are the Reebok Q96 and the Reebok Pumpspective Omni. And how does Reebok know that these sneakers will be successful? Well, they’re both based on sneakers that have been released by Reebok in the past.
The Reebok Q96 is based on the original Reebok Question sneaker that Allen Iverson helped make popular back in the mid to late 1990s. Meanwhile, the Pumpspective Omni is based on the Reebok Pump Omni sneaker that a bunch of different NBA players made popular back in the early 1990s. Both of the original sneakers remain popular today. But the problem is that the technology used in those sneakers is outdated. So Reebok has gone in, reworked both of them, and created updated versions of them. You can hear a bunch of Reebok’s top designers and ambassadors talking about what they did with both the Q96 and the Pumpspective Omni here:
After hearing some folks from Reebok talk about their new lineup of basketball sneakers, are you excited to try them out this season? Or do you wish that Reebok would have come out with some original sneakers this year? We actually really like what Reebok is doing with the Q96 and the Pumpspective Omni. Although there is no way that either of them could ever replace the sneakers that they are based on, we would gladly wear either pair on the court this season.
