KICK GAME: John Wall Reebok Zig Encore [New]

John Wall is going to be playing next season (possibly) in his first signature shoe. Reebok has laced JW with the Reebok Zig Encore. Very similar to the Reebok Zig Slash that he wore and marketed for Reebok last season. But that was not his signature shoe, contrary to many beliefs. It kind of reminds me of when Kobe was featured in the Nike Huarache line before the Kobe Zoom series.

The Upper is a mixture of nubuck, mesh, and patent leather. White is featured on the side panel, the JW logo, and the zig midsole. Red is accenting the shoe on the laces. The shoe is finished with a transluecent blue sole.

Release: October 8th 2011
Retail: Mens: $115
