Yesterday, the good folks at Reebok invited Planet Ill and a select few to the unveiling of their new ZigTech Slash and to announce their newest signing, Kentucky Wildcat point guard and expected 2010 NBA Draft #1 pick John Wall. Wall is the first basketball athlete wearing sneakers that use the ZigTech shoe which is designed to return kinetic energy to the user to enhance explosion.
Wall is no stranger to Reebok. In 2007 he took part in a Reebok promotion, having competed in The Reebok Breakout Camp. His performance against future pros like Milwaukie Bucks guard Brandon Jennings served as his coming out party and established him on the watch list. After a stellar freshman year in Kentucky blue, including an overall 3.5 GPA off the court, Wall decided to take his show to the big stage.
