My First Reebok Pump – Faraz Ghanbari’s Paydirt Preseason Pumps


You never forget your first Reebok Pump. There’s something about their bold design, Pump button, and how the technology works to tighten/loosen the feel of them that just sits with you, forever. Finish Line had the chance to ask 16 Reebok Pump enthusiasts to share their story. The result is a compilation of memories, opinions, and revelations the shoe has manifested with wearers of all kinds. Finish Line presents, My First Reebok Pump

Reebok Paydirt Preseason Pump

My first Pump was back in elementary school. I’ll never forget my dad came home with them. They were white black and burgundy with a strap. I didn’t know what they were called at first but loved them to death. I wore them every chance I could. Later on I actually did a little digging and found out the name of the shoe. It was the Reebok Paydirt Preseason Pump. I still have them to this day. They don’t fit, but they remind me of my childhood and what got me hooked to Reebok. So I can’t part with them. 

Check back tomorrow as My First Reebok Pump continues. In the meantime, head over to FinishLine.com to check out more Reebok Pumps.
