Steph Curry Defends New Shoes

Tomorrow at midnight, Reebok plans to release the new J.J. Watt signature shoe, which is basically a blue shoe, with red and white accent colors, and his JJ logo on the tongue. For $99, people can buy the latest sneaker created for Watt, but you may want to just spend $10 dollars on a pair at Walmart that looks just like them.

Below is a screenshot of the new sneaker, and by the looks of it, Reebok may want to go back to the drawing board.

The release of this shoes bring back memories of those awesome new "Chef Curry" shoes, which Under Armour dropped earlier this year. Curry's kicks were such a laughing-stock that the company decided to give them an upgrade, as most fans thought they looked like shoes a weekend warrior would slip on to get the paper.

J.J. Watt is an incredible talent in the NFL, but hopefully, he did not have much input on these shoes.

The 27-year old Watt is the best defensive player in the NFL, and he has won three of the past four NFL Defensive Player of the Year Awards. Recently, he has gone under the knife twice, once to fix a sports hernia in his groin, and more recently, for a herniated disc in his back. Watt is expected to miss the opener of the 2016 season, but he should be able to come back at full strength to help the Texans early in the year.
