Which part of the Reebok Pump appeals to you most?
“I like how the tongue of the shoe is massive – I’m not the kind of person who hides a shoe tongue inside the leg of my pants, so the shoes are kept in the spotlight. The pumps also add comfort by ‘hugging’ your ankles tight. It makes the fit so much better.”
How does the Reebok Pump fit into your lifestyle and fashion sense?
“When you’re big, size is always an issue. Plus what’s in trend aren’t usually ‘big-boy’ friendly, so I always look up to big guy celebrities like The Reign Man, Shaquille O’Neal, John Cena, and Rick Ross, for inspiration. Fortunately, they’re always rocking Reebok. Even my dad, who’s also a source of inspiration, used to rock Reebok all the time. I’m a big guy and the Pumps are big shoes. It works out.
What gets you all pumped up?
“Hip-hop music and a fresh haircut. Oh, and hot chicks too. Can’t go wrong with that.”
The Bodega x Reebok Pump 25th Anniversary are now available at Limited Edt at VivoCity, Queensway and 313@Somerset
