Reebok’s Genius Sci-fi Shoes or Reebok’s Stupid PR Stunt?

I never thought I’d be mentioning the word “Reebok” on this site, as it’s a brand I haven’t thought of since their shoes proved too wide for me when I was six. And every year since.

But I suppose they’re doing something right by making a shoe so wacky even I have to sit up and take notice. Because “Shox” aren’t enough in shoes, we now have…whatever this this. It’called the ATV19+

“Aiming to capture the essence of an all-terrain vehicle, Reebok has collaborated with UFC fighter Rampage Jackson to introduce the ‘ATV 19+’ training shoe. featuring irregular lugs, rugged overlays, a padded tongue and supportive collar for protection and comfort, the footwear implements high-speed stability and elevated traction with its distinctive design.”

I love Rampage Jackson, but perhaps it’s not the best idea to have someone who gets punched in the head for a living to design shoes for you. That said, I want to walk around in these to see if either A) I fall over or B) Those little nodes are secretly jet engines that make me fly.

    (First I want to say I realllly hate those new ads ontop of images.. I’m too afraid to click them, but am dying to know if there is anything underneath.)

    I have a pair of Nikes that are somewhat similar to this, where the soles are split into a lot of little sections. I think they are good for running on uneven surfaces and also a lot of moving because they sort of conform to whatever surface they are on.

    However, these with major gaps make me leery of how they’d actually work. I mean, if you were to step on something at the wrong angle, will one of those things get hung and really trip you up? …. but now I really want to try some.

    These are truly uglier than two siamese cats fucking inside a sweaty farm sack!!

    The soles do look just like the Matrix hovercrafts!!!
