Pump technology - where did it go

Feel like this was a major breakthrough in the 80s. Pump trainers and pump dispenser toothpaste. Now in’23 my shoes don’t pump and I have to squeeze my toothpaste.

Is civilisation going backwards?

Orthopaedic boots, I had one when I broke my ankle. It was like a knee-high plastic Reebok Pump, had a little separate inflating tool with it. Was quite cool, tbf.
