1) SO WHAT'S THIS "ENCORE" BUSINESS ALL ABOUT? Wow, you don't mess around, huh? STOP DODGING THE QUESTION. HOW CAN A FIRST SIGNATURE SHOE BE CALLED THE "ENCORE"? Well, for starters, it's the ZigEncore. Which means it's the sequel to the first Zigtech basketball shoe, the ZigSlash. And while Wall wore it last year, it wasn't officially his signature shoe. Hence, both "Encore" and first.
