You could argue that there’s a bit of Jackson Pollock in the various splatter prints we see in the sneaker scene today, or that Piet Mondrian’s De Stijl style informed the high-contrast colorways that were so popular in the mid ’00s (not to mention that SB Dunk in his name), but the only deceased artist to maintain an ongoing ‘collaboration’ with a major sneaker brand remains ‘The Radiant Child’.  For the latest drops in their Affili’art collection, Reebok releases two new Jean-Michel Basquiat-inspired basketball shoes, a couple of models whose debut dates sandwich the young Neo-expressionist’s untimely demise.  The Basquiat x Reebok Pump Omni Lite applies his crown insignia in black to the white upper for a crisp contrast, especially when paired with the black patent leather heel, while a grey and teal BB6400 offers another take on the 1984 ‘Trumpet’ piece that’d been applied to the Court Victory Pump roughly one year ago.  Detailed images of both are waiting for you to click below, and then you can pick them up from select RBK retailers like Miami’s Mr. R Sports.

Big Pump fan, and these are looking nice, better than the other Basqiuat's i've previously seen. But i still dont know who that is, or am interested in finding out. If you liked the guy then these look killer.

The pumps are the better shoe of the two but I won't be copping either.

Basquiat was to many considered the first "street art" artist he's the inspiration behind much of the art and style especially this sneaker culture. Check him out and you'll realize why they still make shoes modeled after his art

This dude had nothing to do with the sneaker movement. Yes he was a good artist, but this guy wasn't a sneaker head. This is a good example of how lies get started. I Challenge you to find one kick this guy designed or had an influence on in his time. He is with out question a powerful force in the graffiti/ art world but that's it homie. Stay in school........

@OG Sun God  Late reply i know, but he was a real sneaker head, as an artist he mistreated his work by treading all over it in the creative process and dealers joke that you can date his work by the footprints from the sneakers left on them, u stay in school..............
