Reebok vs. LA Gear


pUmpsOk, first off… I would like someone to impale me with a broomstick. These are special. It’s kinda safe to say everybody remembers Reebok Pumps from back in the day, let alone all the recent re-releaseses. But what better opportunity than this to get nostalgic over some other short lived sneaks that are really only remembered by few….

LA Gear Regulators

The Regulator: The inflatable shoe craze of the early 1990s spawned this shoe, L.A. Gear’s answer to the Reebok Pump. The shoe featured a large pumping button on the tongue (much larger than the Reebok Pump’s was) and a switch on top that deflated the shoe when pushed to the right.

There is probably only a handful of people who can recall these. The pump on these shizens were like twice the size. But if you really want to go overboard….

Not only did they help me dunk on fools, but they got me through college.
