WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Per Slam Magazine, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall will be releasing limited edition Reebok shoes this Thursday.
Only 12 pairs of the John Wall "Beyond The Gold" Zig Encore's will be sold at a shoe outlet in Teaneck, NJ, as an effort to hype up the Wizards matchup Friday with the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. The shoes are packaged in a brief case and also feature a black and gold watch and sunglasses. One of the 12 briefcases will also include tickets to Wall's game Friday.
Does the second-year guard deserve limited shoes yet? Probably not. But that's a perk of signing with someone like Reebok as opposed to Nike. Wall is treated like royalty within the company, where as with Nike, he would probably seem more like a lost puppy.
For those of you into "Swag" -- I'm certainly not -- this package deal has Y.O.L.O. written all over it. All for the price of $200.
