Must Have: John Wall’s Reebok Zig Slash “Gold Rush”
I had the pleasure of seeing the rookie sensation, John Wall, during the Wizard’s home opener on Tuesday night and Wall was sporting his brand new Reebok Zig Slash hi-tops in white. Ever since the “Answer” shoe hype of Allen Iverson died down several years ago, Reebok has been very quiet in the basketball shoe market. However, they are making a strong push with their new Zigtech shoe line which features superstars Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, and Chad Ochocinco. The zigtech shoes have a unique bottom that Reebok describes as “a bottom unit featuring a special lightweight foam that is engineered into a dramatic, geometric, zig-zag shape. Everything about Reebok’s ZigTech footwear is designed to conserve and return energy to the athlete.” Their slogan is “a energy drink for your feet”, I think I’ll have to try on a pair to see for myself. Anyone have any feedback on these shoes? See more pics here.
