UFC fighter Quinton Rampage Jackson is the face of Reebok’s newest training shoe, ATV19+, which is set for release on February 1 for $140.
The ATV 19+ has a rugged look to the design, but it wasn’t made this way solely for the look. The sneaker has functionality, which makes it suitable for fitness buffs or runners alike.
Inspired by the tire geometry of All-Terrain Vehicles, ATV 19+ features 19 irregular lugs designed to rip mud, snow, sand and grass out of the way. ATV19+ technology helps to maintain your footing with each step, and is for optimal running on all surfaces.
The ATV 19+ will come in the color-way above, as well as in a flat grey, black, and acid green and in a red, solar green, and white.
“When I first looked at it, I thought, what am I gonna be doing, running on the moon? Surprisingly enough, this design is really, really comfortable,” Rampage stated. I’ve been running in these shoes for like three months now and have no complaints about it. It took my running to a whole ‘nother level. I hate running! I have a short attention span and I hate running because it’s mundane. You’re running on a treadmill or on the streets and you gotta stop at the lights. With these shoes, you can go anywhere!”
“I wanted to test these shoes out and prove them wrong but I couldn’t. I was running over rocks and logs and in mud, up dirt hills, it doesn’t bother me. It made my cardio much better by doing what I want to do…I wanted to see what these shoes couldn’t do, that’s the type of person I am, I’m a fighter at everything. I haven’t found one thing these shoes can’t do yet.”
What do you think of these? Will you rock a pair or do you think they are just too much?
