If you think the hysteria over Jordan shoes is crazy, just wait. This John Wall show release is going to be bananas.
Wall and Reebok are upping the ante on Jordan and Nike on Thursday by only offering twelve pairs of his new Zig Encore.
Wall’s latest version of the sneaker is called “Beyond the Gold” and SLAM explains why.
“Beyond the Gold” plays off of the success of last year’s “Gold Rush” release on the ZigSlash model, and more broadly on the success Wall has already had early in his career. For John’s encore season, Reebok wanted to make the package bigger and better, going beyond the big city, beyond the bright lights, and beyond the gold.
The shoes are all individually numbered and come in a briefcase, complete with a gold-colored watch and black sunglasses. It’s all very Men In Black.
The shoes drop at midnight Thursday at at Packer Shoes in Teaneck, N.J. To sweeten the deal, one of the briefcases also holds a pair of tickets to Friday’s Wizards game at Madison Square Garden.
All for the bargain price of $200.
