Reebok and John Wall have teamed up to create the latest shoe in his signature line: the Wall Season 3 ZigEscape.
(Take a walk down memory lane with Wall as he celebrates the release of his first signature Reebok sneaker, the Zig Encore.)
The new shoe is currently available in Foot Locker stores and at Reebox.com for $115, in three different colorways: Black/White, Black/Red, and the patriotic Red/White/Blue. Made of leather, the shoe features a lighter take on the original ZigSlash. A sole closer to the ground and a mid-cut silhouette promote better traction on the court. To pay tribute to the game he loves and played as a youngster, Wall had the tongue and back of the shoe feature baseball stitching.

At a recent promotional event at a Foot Locker store in Prince George's Plaza Mall in Hyattsville, Md., Wall signed pairs of shoes and jersey for fans and spoke with the Washington Post, expressing sadness about his time away to rehab his knee injury. He is anxious to return to the Wizards to help them make it into the postseason. Wall has remained engaged with the team by traveling with them for away games and attending practices.
Reebok created a new ad campaign to promote the ZigEscape, and a full video ad will be unveiled on Nov. 15. It will feature Wall visiting several landmarks around his hometown of Raleigh, N.C. with friends. Here is a short clip from Reebok to keep you on your toes:
