The original Reebok Pump was made as a collaboration between Reebok's Paul Litchfield and industrial design firm Design Continuum. It was released in 1989, as a basketball high-top shoe. The shoe was quite expensive compared to other retail athletic shoes at the time, often costing as much as 150% more than the next most expensive athletic shoe on the market. It became something of a status symbol on urban basketball courts and eventually in suburban high schools.
His pumped up kicks came in handy on the court. He scored 30 points during yesterday's game.

A song made by Foster The People named after the luxury footwear. It's known for it's particularly upbeat yet unsettling musical composition/instrumental, and dark lyrics regarding a troubled youth named "Robert" who has fantasies of shooting up his school.

If you hear someone humming this song... particularly if they're white, named Eugene, have a bowl haircut, wear a trench coat/fedora/tie under shirt/etc., sport a neck beard, and/or if they have known association with the brony, weaboo, or furry fandom. It's best if you vacate the premises ASAP.
Ted: "I got my pumped up kicks"

Scott: "Then I saw Eugene in his trench coat, looking at furries on DeviantArt, and humming Pumped Up Kicks reach into his backpack."
