Reebok has dropped another pair of Basquiat-inspired kicks. The artwork of the legendary graffiti-artist-turned-neo-impressionist-sensation has spawned the Basquiat Reebok Pump Omni Lite and they look dope.

Basquiat's well-known scribble-like style covers the shoes and makes them a fashion masterpiece. My favorite aspect of the Basquiat Reebok Pump Omni Lite is the artist's trademark crown atop the Reebok Pump. Freshness in overdrive.

Implications - Graffiti is an art form that is starting to gain more and more attention. These shoes are a celebration of both the art and the artist, recognizing the artist as a talented person and not some sort of gang member. Graffiti is starting to move away from being seen as gang-related art to beautiful masterpieces. Stats for Neo-Impressionist Sneakers Trending: Older & Warm
