x Brain Dead PUMP COURT
In pure footwear terms, Reebok’s Beatnik sandal and Pump Court tennis shoe, both of which date back to the 1990s, are surely “old school.” In the cosmic sense, the passage of time from the mid-‘90s to 2020 is not even the blink of an eye. The cosmic sense is exactly where Brain Dead happens to reside. Subsequently, their latest collaborative release with Reebok imbues these two silhouettes with a hefty dose of esoterica, instantly making them one with several centuries worth of mystical exploration.
Set against the backdrop of paranormal researcher Solomon Wright’s quest to make interdimensional travel a reality, the Beatnik and Pump Court transform into the key and the battery, respectively. The Two Artifacts have been assembled from fragmented pieces scattered across the globe, reflected in the mixed material, multi-colored designs that, one assembled, unlock the hidden door that enables reality warping travel.
The Battery: Layered multi-color upper dressed in earth tones e.g. space grey, goal green, paperwhite, royal orchid, and bare brown. Translucent paperwhite bladder and toe box reveal pellegrini cavallino boogie vamp at the forefoot, while transparent slate overlay at rear reveals chalk green heel panel. Yellow filament pops on upper and tongue with slate and cyclone gray linings at upper and interior. Chalk green soft textile heel bootie and sockliner with yellow filament Reebok and Brain Dead logos. Brain Dead logo with Reebok star crest on Pump button. Solid paperwhite midsole seated atop black and multi-color rubber outsole matching earth-tone upper.
