Why People Don’t Get the Reebok Insta Pump Fury

“No one famous has worn these”


Steven Tyler, aka the “Demon of Screamin”, frontman of Aerosmith, famous enough for you? At the 1994 MTV Music Awards, Tyler performed Walk This Way while wearing the Insta Pump Fury in the OG colorway. The rocker even reportedly left designer Steven Smith a voicemail to say, “Dude, you got me through the 90’s, those were the most badass shoes ever, those Reebok Furys.” Back in the day, it wasn’t common practice for sportswear brands to give shoes to celebrities for free, which means Tyler went out and bought those “Reebok Furys”!
