John Wall's shoes


(Getty)


Hey look. It's John Wall's new Reebok signature shoe. Still waiting for the joint ad with Ovechkin.

I've seen worse. It needs a Pump, though.

That shoe is ugly! I am partial to Nike, though.

Hideous. And I'm guessing by the time it hits the shelves, it will be red. One and done means you don't have to wear the school colors anymore...

Looks like a boxer's shoe.

Red? Better than than bronze and teal. Hopefully there's a uniform change in a year or two (too late to do it for next season, I believe) that merits a red, white and blue version.

That's a better pic. It still needs the Pump.

Yes, red. Based on "Rock the Red" Ted Leonsis' comments, I believe the new Wizards primary color will be red.

But a color change will not help that hideous-looking shoe. Even the peasants and children working in the sweatshop factories in China and Vietnam cranking out that shoe are like, "Damn, that's an ugly shoe." All that webbing, looks like something Aquaman would wear.

This is a joke, right?

The 1st pic was just awful. This pic is a little bit better. Still ugly. But the Zig Zag technology is really really comfortable. I'm sure they'll make a few tweaks and by all-star break, he'll have a new shoe for the rookie-sophomore game.

sidebar - Wow! We're finally getting a player into the rookie-sophomore game! I cant even remember the last time we had someone in there.

You know Arenas must really be jealous of Wall now. It took years for Arenas to land a deal with Adidas.

So ugly and laughably expensive

Why on earth would anyone over the age of 15 would want those?
