What about the Reebok Pump appeals to you most?
“The Pump may not attract most ladies because of its slightly larger silhouette but I’m all up for that. It gives me a unique identity. It’s what makes me special.”
We understand that you are a big fan of Reebok. What makes the brand so special to you?
“I’m pretty fussy about quality, design, and comfort, and am always in search for the perfect fit when it comes to buying a pair of sneakers. About a year ago, I came across the first pair of shoes that provided the most ideal fit – the Reebok CL X 3.V.0.7. I put them on and, voila, everything felt right. I’ve been a Reebok fangirl ever since.”
What gets you all pumped up?
“Definitely a good session of dance!”
What do you like about the SNS x Reebok Pump 25th Anniversary?
“I like the Pac-Man-like sole of the shoe. Not to mention the Energy Return System (ERS) at the ball of the heel in four backlight reflected neon colors; it’s the first time I’ve come across the ERS in four different color blocks.”
What makes you such a fan of the Bok?
“When I was a kid, I was crazy over basketball. While everyone was rocking The Answer, I was really fascinated with Dee Brown’s Reebok Omni Pump Lite. I always wondered if pumping the Boks up could really make you fly. It wasn’t till a few years ago that I stumbled upon a pair of Reebok Court Victory Pump at one of our local sports stores and I told myself that I had to have it! I bought it without a second thought and haven’t stopped loving its comfort ever since.”
What pumps you up?
“A cup of hot coffee and good house music.”
