John Wall turned 21 on Tuesday, opening up a whole new world of opportunities that he has surely never experienced. For instance, now that he’s 21, he’ll probably get a nice break on his car insurance, which is something I’m sure he’s worried about. In a lockout, every dollar counts.

Anyway, since he’s now a legal adult, Reebok’s releasing a special version of Wall’s second signature shoe, the Zig Encore, in something they’re calling the “Grown Ass Man Edition” because he’s fancy. Only 21 pairs of the shoes are being made available to the public, and they’re all being sold at the Footlocker store in Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, NC, so good luck getting your hands on these. If you do, congratulations, because you get a real snazzy box to store them in since you’re probably not going to want to ruin these by stepping in dog doo-doo. A true gentleman always keeps his shoes in pristine condition.

Detailed photos after the jump for all you grown-ups out there.

  1. Uhm, do Grown-Ass Men read Friedrich Nietzsche? Beyond Good and Evil?

    That particular choice gave me a double take. Pretty funny.

  2. Key factor: Grown Ass Men don’t wear Reeboks.

  3. i got to say i like the shoe but making 21 of these is an extreamly good idea if john wall starts getting crazy good, and wins like 7 rings then these will be a crazy expensive collecters item

  4. @Nicholas 7 rings? with the wizards? dream on

  5. Reeboks are so ugly, i didnt like his last shoes either

  6. Grown Ass waste of shoe fabric. I’m glad there are only 21.
    Ugly as sin. You couldn’t pay me to wear them. Yuck.
    Awful marketing gimmick as well.

    You want a terrible concept that at least is amusing?
    Do a Pink Floyd themed shoe called “The Wall”.
    The stoner and psychedelic symphonic prog-rock market would be in raptures.
