Expected first overall draft pick John Wall signed a deal worth a reported $25 million to endorse Reebok for his first 5 years in the NBA. While many basketball and sneaker purists second-guessed his decision to join the brand, two guaranteed signature shoes were enough to get the Kentucky to wear the Vector on the court.
Reebok has confirmed that though Wall will eventually wear shoes bearing his name, he’ll at least begin his rookie year in the ZigTech Slash, making him the first basketball player to endorse the new technology. Also given in a press release from Reebok is a date for the debut of this unique sneaker: October 15th. We all know that players’ on-court performances can translate into sales at sneaker shops. Will a breakout year for Wall get you into a pair of ZigTechs?
