Melody Ehsani x Reebok Pump Omni Lite Sneakers
Hey ladies, take a look at these kicks! The Melody Ehsani x Reebok Classics Pump Omni Lite “Love Me or Hate Me” sneaker has to be the oddest shoe we have ever seen thus far. And like its title, some people hate them while others love it. What’s even more shocking is the frenzy over these sneakers.
When Ehsani released them for sale at her official webstore Saturday (Feb. 1), it crashed her website. Six hours later, she had the site up and running and her Reebok pumps sold out within minutes.
If you are still scratching your head at the design of the sneaker, we’ll break it down for you.
The Persian designer chose Reebok’s classic Pump Omni Lite, which NBA legend Dee Brown wore to win the 1991 Slam Dunk contest, to create her masterpiece.
She gave the upper a multi-colored python-inspired print with matching laces (there’s also three sets of laces included as well). She then added two gold “Love” debrays and a rubber padlock hangtag, which can also be used as a bracelet or necklace. Fashionable and functional — we love it!
The “Pump” tongue stays true to the original sneaker and has a dark gum-colored bottom.
The limited-edition Melody Ehsani x Reebok Pump Omni Lite sneaker will be available at select retailers this Friday (Feb. 7). You can cop them at Extra Butter in New York and at Wish in Atlanta. The kicks retail for $200. Good luck!
