After delivering two colorways of the Betwixt Mid, Melody Ehsani has hooked up an edition of the Reebok Pump Omni Lite that she is calling the ‘Love Me Or Leave Me Alone’. Ehsani describes the sneaker as fitting both her sporty and girly side.
I’m so excited to be continuing my ongoing partnership with Reebok Classic. Growing up, I was the tomboy on the basketball court who wanted to be Dee Brown pumping his Reeboks before the slam dunk contest! The girl in me could relate to Valentine’s Day…what girl doesn’t love pink, red and hearts? But there is a problem when it is assumed that all women want a pink sneaker, there is a real lack of consideration for the vast taste and roles women have in society. It shows lack of dimension. ‘Love Me Or Leave Me Alone’ challenges this, and celebrates my love for strong, beautiful and powerful women and it’s an honor for me to express this with a re-interpretation of the Classic Pump.
The kicks are fitted in a python print in a mix of colors against a black and white base with traces of gold. The gold extends to the lace clips that read “Love”. Other detailing includes a gum outsole that matches the gum tongue. As a final touch, the kicks have a message imprinted on the inner lining for the wearer.
The kicks will launch on the 1st of February through Ehsani’s shop with a global release, set for the 7th of February.
