While Dominique Wilkins may not have been in the house this time for the release of the Packer Shoes x Reebok ‘Nique’ Pump sequel, that didn’t seem to stop anyone from coming down to cop their pair and show support. It was clear that after last year’s super-limited Pump 20 version, people out in the sneaker world were seriously feeling the concept and thrilled to see Nique get some long overdue signature shoe love. Numbered at 441 pairs (Wilkins’ jersey #21 x 21 years of the Pump), there were more to go around this time, but they were moving off the shelves on Tuesday as if they were just as limited as last time. Between the in-store and online sale, nearly the whole run sold out in a day along with the accompanying Vandal-A t-shirt, but if you might still be able to find a pair of the Niques in your size, so if you missed out, hit up Packer Shoes before they clear out for good. Keep reading for a look at the highlights from the release, and be sure to peep what quickly became the talk of the day – a red version of the shoe spotted on the feet of a member of the Packer crew. It’s looking like the eye-catching red edition might be for friends and family only, as quantities and availability are still somewhat of a mystery. Check out a cell phone pic that someone snapped after the jump and stay tuned for more on that intriguing development coming soon.
