Jam of the Day | Foster the People - Pumped Up Kicks


Ladies and gentlemen, I invite you to consider the Reebok pump. Created in 1989, this shoe was designed to make young boys run faster, jump higher, eff around and get triple doubles. I saw my brother go through pair after pair, hoping that maybe he'd finally be able to palm a basketball.

Cut to 2010, and Foster the People have come out with a sizzling summer jam called "Pumped Up Kicks." With coolly lackadaisical whistling and muffled vocals, this song creeps along until its infectious chorus contaminates your brain...in a good way, of course.

As it goes, "All the other kids with the pumped up kicks/ You better run, better run, outrun my gun..." Break out those Reebok Pumps; you gotta run faster than that bullet.

  1. Wow, somehow I went from just searching Reebok pumps for nostalgic reasons, to finding this incredibly addictive song (thanks Speakers in Code) to anticipating seeing them live at this show I just found! All in the course of about 5 minutes. Oh the internet.
