Floyd Mayweather Jr. took some time out of training for his upcoming fight with Sugar Shane Mosley to show off the new Reebok Zigs. These shoes are some of the best new shoes on the market, promoting energy return in the shoe and allowing wearers to go longer, harder, and faster in their training. In fact, these shoes are not only being used by Floyd Mayweather but also Chuck Liddell and Amir Khan as they train for their fights.
“We’re thrilled Floyd is training for his upcoming fight in the new Reebok ZigTech shoes. We have literally hundreds of athletes that are doing the same thing, and to have one of the best pound-for-pound fighters using these shoes to train for one of the biggest fights of the year really shows the attributes of the shoes. Floyd’s preparation has been incredible and these shoes are helping him train longer, harder, and faster to be in the best shape he can be in for this fight.” said Chris Froio, Head of Global Marketing, Mens Sport.
