WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Washington Wizard John Wall and Reebok are set to release the point guards newest shoe. Meet the Reebok ZigEscape.
Call me a John Wall hater all you want, but seriously Reebok? These shoes look like the company is exclusively selling them at Payless.
How the hell did Wall approve these? What hip teenager is going to go flocking to a shoe store to snag a pair of these? Is Wall himself even going to wear these next season?
In June of 2010, Reebok signed Wall to a five-year, $25 million deal. Reebok sold Wall on the fact that he will be getting all of their attention, as opposed to Nike, who has their hands full with bigger star players than the Washington Wizard. In my opinion, Reebok has been a complete failure in building Wall's brand off the court.
Wall's other activity this offseason includes partying with rappers in Los Angeles and missing the bus at Team USA select practice in Las Vegas.
