No, I never completed my Reebok Zig Encore Performance Review… they weren’t playable and I can’t play in something that isn’t playable – even for a review… I want to play my best and win more than I want to test a shoe.
Ivan, on the other hand, decided to keep going in his – I salute his young legs for that – and here is his final verdict… which is very similar to mine… they suck.
While I was at the House of Hoops yesterday, I checked out the Wall Season 3 & they didn’t fix a thing in the shoe. Sure, the materials and fit are improved but that was a minor setback in the Season 2… cushioning was the real issue. They still have the TPU plate under foot & hard as rocks Zig Nano midsole in place which will make your legs want to tear themselves from your body just so they can walk behind you and kick you right in the ass for making them wear such a thing to play in.
