Kicks: Reebok ZigEncore ‘Grown Ass Man Edition’


On Tuesday, John Wall turned 21 years old. For those keeping score at home, Wall went No. 1 overall in the Draft; led his team in minutes, assists, and steals; signed a multi-million dollar contract; and got his own signature shoe all before he could legally enjoy an adult beverage. In celebration of his big birthday and in anticipation of his second NBA season, Reebok is releasing a limited number of pairs of the exclusive “Grown Ass Man Edition” LE Wall Season 2: ZigEncore in Wall’s hometown of Raleigh, NC.

Twenty-one pairs of the “Grown Ass Man” Zigs will hit the shelves of Foot Locker at Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh on Saturday morning, priced at $210 a pop. Each pair of the custom-built kicks comes in an individually numbered handmade cedar box, and Reebok says all proceeds from sales will go to a charity of Wall’s choice. So if you’re in the area, celebrate the Wizard’s born-on date with a slick, rare version of his personalized sneakers.
