Pump it up Reebok Premier Pump Paris Trainer: Lightweight neutral trainer with an inflatable air chamber around the heel/ankle area. Likes: Although Reebok's re-release of this decade-old technology seems gimmicky at first, the Pump actually works — adding real comfort and stability. It's easy to use; after tying your shoes, just push the Pump button a few dozen times (press the release valve to empty the air chamber and exit the shoe). The shoe's snug, lightweight (12.2 ounces in size 9) fit is enhanced by the inflatable collar, which comfortably locks the heel in place. The Pump has no apparent weight or bulk penalty. Dislikes: None. Price: $100. www.reebok.com.
