As the NBA allows for special sneakers on holidays, sneaker companies are more and more likely to create special editions for their endorsees to wear on those holidays.
It looks like this might be one of those pairs for John Wall. The sneaker, the adidas J Wall 2, features a "Night of the Ballin' Dead" theme, glow in the dark accents, what appears to be a brain pattern, and graphic insoles.
What makes the sneaker confusing is that there's a similar pair that's already been confirmed for a retail release. It's possible that this sample version, which features a similar approach but a different colorway, won't be hitting retail.
Sole Collector will provide updates should this shoe end up hitting shelves come October.
