Reebok Wall Season 2: ZigEncore (John Wall Signature Shoe Sample)

Use ← → (arrow) keys for new photos & posts

JWall’s Encore.

CounterKicks has learned a few new details on John Wall’s coming Reebok signature shoes for next season. Instead of the “Zig Nano” name that many sneaker sites are referencing, the shoe is officially the Wall Season 2: ZigEncore.

The photos out today from an eBay auction exhibit a first round sample of the Reebok ZigEncore with a couple changes being made toward the final production version. CK has been informed that the John Wall logo depicted on this shoe is incorrect and has been changed on the final version. The phrase “Humble and Hungry” is also inaccurate and has been changed for production. John Wall’s second signature shoes feature a retooled basketball-specific bottom with added solid rubber traction along the outsole. More details to come as it develops. Check out these Reebok Wall Season 2: ZigEncore first round samples for now.

:cry: This frustrates me, this is an apology shoe, dumbing-down the Zig(either do it right, or not at all, half ‘n’ half just won’t do it).

Also for someone like John Wall, this shoe isn’t flash enough, I was hoping they’d go more outspoken.

You can tell it is a very early sample but this thing has a long way to go.

they look like vc 2’s…only in colorway and at a quick glance.

it still looks like a mock-up or first pullover, but it’s promising. i think the problem reebok has is that it’s logo is always so prominent on all it’s shoes that it almost always has to be incorporated into the very shape and styling of it. if it comes in a reebok box, that should be enough. we don’t need a constant reminder that someone’s wearing reebok shoes because they look like they’re wearing the reebok logo on their feet.

Problem will be though, it’ll look a little like Zig, but with all the rubber, and the closed bottom of the sole, it won’t act like Zig anymore. :(

And the uppers definitely need more, when they launched the Zig, RBK said they wanted to bring back their classic image, of bold, unapologetic design, this is non of that.

I will wait until I see final images and hold the shoe in my hand.

@Titusmark- What is the difference between their logo being upfront and center compared to Nike, Puma, Asics, etc?

@Shoe Insider- I think the difference with Nike is that the logo doesn’t always take up 2/3 of the shoe. The Reebok logo overwhelms a lot of people if the try to put too much around or behind it.

Its great that Reebok loves their new zigtechnology, but John Wall is a lightning fast PG. Giving your new basketball icon a chunky shoe like this is merely slowing him down and getting him injured.

Stop making Wall regret signing with Reebok and give him something sweet like the Answer ii and iv

@ Corey, people tend to forget, that only a small part of RBK shoes have the big Vector.
So it’s really an inaccurate idea, that all RBK’s have the big vectors, and that it’s their logo getting in the way of their design.

Their big problem with RBK design, is that RBK announced attitude, keeps saying they are about lifestyle, and attitude, but then take the safe-road(because these are basically a OmniHex/ZigSlash combo).

They should be WAY more outspoken like Caleb said, take the Answer route, love ‘em, or hate ‘em, but you won’t be on the fence.
That should be their start off point, not taking the safe-road, like they did on these.
