Reebok Zigtech Manila Launch
It’s finally here. After leaking some photos a couple of months back, it’s here. Reebok’s newest (and by far the most interesting) line is now available. Zigtech- The energy drink for your feet. After wearing the pair over the past few months, I am sold. It’s really a great ride and I’m just glad Reebok’s headed to better things with the new technology.
The launch was at Reebok’s store over at Trinoma but the shoe is now available at all their branches- Megamall, Festival, and the Shoe Shops. The event was hosted by Paolo Abrera with Jackie Rice, Rainer Castillo, and Mark Caguioa gracing the launch. I was there with friends from Solar Entertainment, King Crux and Miko A and it was a good one. It was like any other sneaker launch– you learn about the tech, you get to try ’em on and the free food. But what this marks and signifies is truly different. Reebok is back. Yes, they have the easytone (which caters more for the women), yes they’ve done Pump again. But yes, they are truly back with this one. Although the trend has gone to more simpler and retro pieces, real heads, real sneaker fans appreciate new technology. This is definitely something good for the sneaker scene and this move definitely puts some life back to the Bok.
Oh, let’s not forget that they just signed John Wall to a new sneaker deal (news on this in a few). Right now, looks like he’ll be wearing the Zig Slash. But yes, hooray for the Zig- the shoe that gives you 20% energy back to get you to perform longer and better.
this is what I wore to the event. this colorway is dropping next week
The shoe retails for 4,995 php and more colorways on the way. This is the Zig Fuel. the Zig Pulse should be out around September/October.
