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.

These would look nice with a good pair of jeans, tucked in, with the hi-top stretched out to show off the shoe.
America is in a revival phase. Old fashions and ideas are making a comeback in 2009 and probably will continue into 2010. Maybe it’s the recession that’s reignited a desire to embrace all things Americana. We’ve seen the reintroduction of cords, vests, and now the rugged boot. I remember back in High School everyone used to sport the Timberland Premium boots, but it wasn’t the look for me so I went for the Chukka style. I felt it was classier and more timeless. It’s actually a pair I’d still recommend. Read the rest of this entry »
