When John Wall visited Madison Square Garden to face the Knicks in November of 2010, Reebok celebrated the Big Apple spotlight by hooking up their rookie rising star with a crazy metallic gold version of his Zig Slash shoe dubbed the ‘Gold Rush’. Only 12 pairs were released to the public at a special Foot Locker release event in NYC, leading to quite a scramble outside of the 34th St. Foot Locker. We saw a sneak peek of the follow-up Zig Encore ‘Beyond the Gold’ all the way back in November, but with the NBA lockout wiping out the initial Washington Wizards trips to MSG this year, the shoe’s release seemed to be in peril. Now it appears that things are back on schedule with John Wall and company finally set to visit the Knicks this coming Friday, and a super limited release of the ‘Beyond the Gold’ is indeed on the way. Check out the teaser pics for now and stay tuned later this week for more info.
