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 â€˜Love Me Or Leave Me Aloneâ€™. Ehsani describes the sneaker as fitting both her sporty and girly side.
Iâ€™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 Valentineâ€™s Dayâ€¦what girl doesnâ€™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. â€˜Love Me Or Leave Me Aloneâ€™ challenges this, and celebrates my love for strong, beautiful and powerful women and itâ€™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.
