When (or if) John Wall returns to the NBA courts for his sophomore campaign, he'll be laced with his first official signature shoe under Reebok, the Zig Encore. Boasting a look similar last season's Zig Slash, the Zig Encore is a slightly lower cut model equipped with a slimmer ZigNano-cushioned sole.
This particular pair features a black nubuck, patent and mesh-based upper with white accenting the side panels, Vector branding, Wall's signature on the right medial collar and his brand new "JW" logo centered on the tongue. Red takes care of the laces and inner liner, while a blue-tinted translucent outsole with increased herringbone traction finishes things off below.
Look for the Reebok Zig Encore to drop in several colorways on October 8th. Youth sizes will be made available as well. Men's sizes will retail for $115.
