In a recent interview Swizz Beats said he was not only going to bring his own creations about with Reebok but that he also was instrumental in them continuing to produce the Basquiat line of sneakers. This sounds more like the work of a silent partner than a collaborator but that’s neither here nor there.
For the Fall 2011 release of the line we get quite a few colorways of the Reebok Pump Omni Lite. We have seen great things from that model as of late and this is continued thanks to these Basquiat sneakers. All in all we will see three new looks including a White/Black, Black/Red and Black/Metallic Gold colorway. The sneakers are as brash as ever featuring all spliced pu images of his work and the phrase ‘I AM BASQUIAT’ splashed across the upper. Look for these to release later this year.
