2012 rising stars recap 18 NBA Feet: 2012 Rising Stars Challenge Recap

The league’s most promising first- and second-year players got together to participate in the 2012 BBVA Rising Stars Challenge that featured a mixed-and-matched team drafted by makeshift GMs Shaquille O’neal and Charles Barkley. Team Chuck took the win at the end with Cleveland Cavs rookie phenom Kyrie Irving taking home the MVP honors. Of course, we had our eyes glued to their feet, and the Rising Stars Challenge certainly did not disappoint; among the key sightings were there Hyperfuse Low iD for Jeremy Lin, Landry Fields and his Zoom Kobe VII PE, John Wall’s Zig Encore PE, Norris Cole’s LeBron 9 PE, and Blake Griffin’s scorching red Hyperdunk 2011s. The Rising Stars Challenge served as a platform for other brands who don’t get much notice, like Kemba Walker’s Under Armour Micro G Bloodline and Evan Turner’s Li-Ning Turningpoint ‘Year Of The Dragon’ PE. Check out the recap from the 2012 Rising Stars Challenge below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more All-Star Weekend Coverage! via Yahoo

Reebok Zig Encore – John Wall All-Star Weekend PE

February 24th, 2012 by | 5 comments

reebok zig encore john wall all star pe 1 Reebok Zig Encore   John Wall All Star Weekend PE

John Wall will enter this All-Star Weekend with a huge bag of chips on his shoulder; the former number-1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft was selected twelfth in a field of twenty for the newly-formatted Rising Stars Challenge in a process wear the team’s coaches, Shaq and Charles Barkley, picked their players in a playground-style draft. Jeremy Lin, a late addition to the pool and unofficial ‘rival’ since their highly-publicized Summer League showdown, was selected third overall behind Blake Griffin and Kyrie Irving. Of course, being the twelfth pick isn’t a true expression of Wall’s value; Barkley had already selected a point guard (Irving) and filled out his start five before selecting his purported back-ups, but it still stings a bit to fall so quickly in the ranks. In any case, you can see the Washington Wizards star during the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge as well as the Taco Bell Skills Competition wearing this PE of the Reebok Zig Encore, so keep an eye out for his this weekend because Wall’s ready to shine the the spotlight!

Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond the Gold’

December 24th, 2011 by | 1 comment

reebok zig encore beyond the gold Reebok Zig Encore Beyond the Gold

The timing of the NBA’s labor resolution was absolutely perfect, a deal to save an entire season that still preserved the league’s biggest annual television showcase.  Nike Basketball was emphasizing college hoops while the lockout endured, but were ready with Christmas Day 2011 PEs once a deal got done, and it sorta seemed like all the stars were aligned for a new era of labor peace in the Association.  But one guy whose timing has been a bit disrupted by the shortened regular season is Washington Wizards point guard John Wall, who expected to debut his Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond the Gold’ a bit earlier in the season.  These shiny golden Zig Encores are the follow-up to last November’s ZigTech Slash ‘Gold Rush’, and are similarly being held for Wall’s first game of the season in New York.  But unlike last year when that went down during the first week, the Wiz won’t venture up I-95 to Madison Square Garden until April; will you be on call for a lineup whenever the 12-pair briefcase-bound drop is scheduled?  Click through to see more of the ‘Beyond the Gold’ Zig Encore and stick with Sneaker News for the release date.  via Dime

Now that the NBA’s owners and players have finally decided it’s in everybody’s best interest to get back to basketball, we’re starting to get wind of possible free agent signings and trade rumors.  The most titilating tidbit so far is the discussion of a Chris Paul for Rajon Rondo deal, but wouldn’t John Wall joining the Los Angeles Lakers be every bit as sensational?  But fear not, Washington Wizards fans; this purple and gold accented Reebok Zig Encore isn’t likely a sign of things to come for your spectacularly talented sophomore, but rather, a look back at his tenure at Raleigh, NC’s Word of God Christian Academy.  Click through to get a better look at this suede-toed Zig Encore and let us know how they rank against the other colorways we’ve seen before you grab a pair from PYS.

Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond the Gold’ – Teaser

One of the worst crimes perpetrated by those responsible for the NBA lockout is our inability to see if John Wall can come through like another one-and-done star from a Calipari-coached white and blue-wearing university in the Mid-Atlantic.  Without a full regular season, it seems even less likely that Wall could beat Derrick Rose’s insane three-year ROY-to-MVP career path, but that won’t stop the progression of his RBK signature series.  The Reebok Zig Encore ‘Beyond the Gold’ can be seen as a follow-up to last year’s lockbox’d special edition ‘Gold Rush’ Zig Slashes, and judging by the matte black briefcases, these Zig Encores bring along with them the promise of a new JW3 logo.  Now if we could only get them on court at the Verizon Center . . . but even if the NBA’s nuclear winter temporarily extinctifies pro basketballers in the USA, these should arrive on time as a limited release next month.  Check them out in more images after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for the Zig Encore ‘Beyond the Gold’ release date.  via HorsemanNumber3

While Reebok’s team of athletes in the basketball realm may not be as deep as others, they do have a star on their roster in the form of John Wall.
