we can download the latest pip as

  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
                                 Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed

the pip :


now we install it

python get-pip.py

pip --version
pip 19.3 from /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pip (python 2.7)

what in case we want the old pip version - 8.1.2

then how we can use curl to download specific pip version as 8.1.2

sudo pip install pip==8.1.2

It will install the 8.1.2 and remove the newest.
