Huge updates to 80’s & 90’s pages

The 80’s and 90’s pages have had a solid update this weekend – particularly to include the missing Pump® range. The 90’s page now lists 44 shoes, while the 80’s page lists a massive 76. As always, please feedback with correction or additions! ~BokOne

 

 

Energaire Technology

Hidden amongst the Reebok Pump lineup was this fascinating and somewhat forgotten technology called Energaire —

From what I’m aware, Energaire was a 3rd-party technology used by Reebok on the 1991 Pump Walking (below), and the more sober Comfort I (bottom). The technology was also used on shoes by the Spalding company.


A number of Patents define this technology as using fluids or air to transmit between the 2 reservoirs at either end – for the purpose of “encouraging a Walkers’ consistent foot-strike”.  The Pump Walking itself apparently has 3 technologies incorporated – Pump,  Energaire, and Hexalite (supposedly in the heel) making it a shoe with more tech than any other in memory. If you have any more information, please comment below! ~BokOne
