Both Reebok and Keith Haring took flight in the 1980s in two completely different scenes. While Keith Haring was busy painting New York City with his signature touch for the abstract and cartoon, all while having heavy involvement in the anti-drug campaign known as ‘Crack is Wack’, Reebok was taking off on the hardwood thanks to the likes of Dee Brown pumping up his sneakers in the Dunk Contest. Now the two return with their ongoing Reebok Classics x Keith Herring collaboration with three new colorways of the Reebok Insta Pump Fury, Leather Court Victory Pump and previously seen Pump Omni Lite. Featuring an array of orange, black and white, the Insta Pump Fury gets the most vibrant hue, but the other classic silhouettes do manage to fit in an extra dose of cut out shapes and graphics throughout. Stick around after the click for a few at the entire Keith Haring collaboration and be sure to let us know which pair is your favorite in the comments section.

Props to Reebok for acknowledging Keith Haring and his artistic influence from the mid 80's to early 90's. Those "squiggle" caricatures always take me back when I see 'em. I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't wear these but collectors would definitely see these as a compliment to their collection.
