Reebok is enjoying the success of Allen Iverson’s retros as a key part of their recent push back into the sneakerhead leading wave, but the brand’s recent roundball symposium seemed to distance RBK from its late ’90s/early ’00s rebellious image.  The tagline “Traning Day IS Game Day” stands in stark contrast to openly questioning the value of ‘Practice?!’, which is to say that young stars like John Wall have learned that success in today’s NBA requires that ultimate dedication.  Wall’s third RBK signature, the Reebok Zig Escape was crafted in an Olympic Rings-ish colorup to commemorate the Reebok Basketball Summit; how do they compare to the other colorways we’ve already seen, or Iverson’s retros for that matter?  Let us know after you’ve had a chance to see more below and stick with Sneaker News for upcoming Zig Escape release info.

Reebok Wall Zig Escape

That John Wall watches from home while fellow University of Kentucky Wildcat one-and-doner Anthony Davis plays valuable minutes for Team USA in London is more a testament to the New Dream Team’s guard-heavy small-leaning talent overload than a reflection of their disparity in NCAA Championships.  Reebok knows Wall is an elite talent even if he was overshadowed by Blake Griffin in his ‘rookie’ year or suffered a ‘stuck’ sophomore season with a medicore-at-best Washington Wizards squad.  Their new Reebok Zig Escape marks the third John Wall signature release under the Vector, and this one offers a more luxurious approach than we’ve seen on either the Slash or Encore.  Whether its name hints at JW11′s free agent intentions or just marks the departure from the busy ‘piping’ that covered his previous sigs, things are looking up for the Wall x Reebok partnership, and you can see the latest product in a few new colorways after the jump.  Photos: HOOPmag

Reebok Zig Escape – John Wall Season 3

July 30th, 2012 by | 1 comment

reebok john wall zig escape season 3 Reebok Zig Escape   John Wall Season 3

Reebok Basketball’s lone star athlete John Wall will enter his third NBA season later this year – will he be able to Escape the depths of the NBA Lottery and lead the Washington Wizards to a Playoff berth? The Wizards are definitely among the most talked-about teams this offseason for their impressive roster-revamp; they’ve added Emeka Okafor to battle down low alongside Nene, bolstered the swingman position with Trevor Ariza, and drafted Bradley Beal of Florida to help out in the backcourt. It seems the Wizards made all the right moves toward Playoff contention, but the future of the Wizards truly lies on the shoulders of John Wall, who will debut the Reebok Zig Escape later this year. The Zig midsole returns with a dazzling upper that anyone will quickly attribute to the Reebok Kamikaze and an exterior lacing system that gives the Zig Escape a sportier look. Another tonal-black colorway is available for preview below, so take a look and we’ll keep you updated on more of the Wall’s third signature shoe with Reebok. Photos: ult

John Wall’s Breakout – The Animated Story

July 12th, 2012 by | No comments

john walls breakout animated story John Walls Breakout   The Animated Story

An extremely guard-heavy lineup meant Washington Wizards PG John Wall didn’t even get a chance at an Olympic appearance with Team USA this summer, but judging by the last time JW13 got overlooked so badly, he’ll be a key component of the 2016 squad.  Serious basketball fans remember that Wall was relatively unknown before his surprising performance at the appropriately named Reebok Breakout Underclassman Camp.  Wall had a Michael Jordan-like awakening a short while earlier, having been cut from the varsity squad and heading to the Chicago camp as a last-ditch effort to salvage a promising career.  So he went from JV reject to the nation’s top recruit, all the while wearing a ‘look at me’ mohawk that served notice to his critics: John Wall’s is a talent that must be seen on the biggest stage.  Check out the James Blagden-animated video in full after the jump and let us know how this one compares to the other inspirational stories we so love about sports.

reebok zig encore stay fresh john wall pe Reebok Zig Encore Stay Fresh John Wall PE

The last special release we saw from John Wall’s Reebok Zig series had his sneakers done up in a regal gold treatment, a putting on a rather serious look. This time around the Vector Brand switches it up with a playful pair that pays homage to John Wall’s apparent obsession with The Fresh Prince of Bel Air as a youngin. The sneakers take on a fluorescent look that probably would have felt right at home on any given after school b-ball court in the 90′s where one might find themselves shooting some hoops. Continue reading for the full look at the Reebok Zig Encore ‘Stay Fresh’ pair for John Wall, which is actually seeing a limited release with just 148 pairs available now at various Foot Locker locations across the country (locations listed after the jump).

nba feet 4 16 12 NBA Feet: Weekend Recap   4/13   4/15

There’s a little less than two weeks to go in the NBA season, but the NBA kicks just seem to get better and better. After debuting the Ambassador IV on Friday night, LeBron whipped out the Nike LeBron 9 Low in Black/Red against the Knicks on Sunday. The Garden seemed to be home to a lot of great sightings, because we saw the Air Jordan 2012, Air Jordan X, Kobe VII ‘Wolf’, and even John Wall’s ‘Beyond The Gold’ PE hit the Mecca floor. Other notables include Nate Robinson showing the Melo M8 some love, OJ Mayo rocking the tonal patent leather navy Air Max CB 34 HOH exclusives, and Timofey Mosgov boasting what might be the best iD colorway of the Huarache 2k4. The sneaker king of the week is without a doubt Monta Ellis, who showed up on Friday night with the Air Jordan XVI CDP and Air Jordan XVIII CDP (switching at halftime), and on Sunday with the Silver Anniversary XI. More of this weekend’s best footwear sightings, so take a look for a full recap of NBA Feet! Photos: espn

Reebok Zig Encore John Wall ‘Beyond The Gold’ Release @ Packer Shoes – Event Recap

April 13th, 2012 by | 22 comments

john wall gold packer recap 1 Reebok Zig Encore John Wall Beyond The Gold Release @ Packer Shoes   Event Recap

Yesterday, Packer Shoes played host to one of the most limited sneaker releases in recent memory – the twelve-pair release of the Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond The Gold’ John Wall PE. Packaged in a black suitcase alongside a pair of shades and a Flud watch, the ‘Beyond The Gold’ PE serves as one of the brightest under-the-radar drops of the year, although the line-up that formed at noon on Wednesday says that these were very much zeroed in on by vigilant sneaker hunters. The crowd wasn’t limited to the NJ area either; while the first package went to one NYC resident, lucky #8, which also came with tickets to tonight’s Knicks game as well as a meet-and-greet with John Wall, went to Sebastian Cardaval, who traveled all the way from San Diego, CA.

The twelve pairs were gone fast, but Reebok and Packer Shoes didn’t allow the rest of the attendees to go empty handed, as they also released a limited number of other PE colorways of the Zig Encore like the Kentucky PE, a Red/White PE, and the Purple/Yellow Word of God Christian Academy PE. Reebok also dropped some samples, like a sick South Beach-esque pair in Wall’s size 13 that went to the unlucky 13th person in line (not so unlucky now, huh?). We’ve got a nice photo recap of the Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond The Gold’ John Wall PE release below, so check it out if you couldn’t be there!
