If you fancy yourself a shoe collector (or just like to hear about the hysterical lengths people will go to get them), then John Wall's latest release will intrigue you.

Yes, that would be a briefcase.
At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Reebok will release Wall's newest shoe, the "Beyond The Gold" Zig Encore, at Packer Shoes in Teaneck, N.J.
The sale of these shoes coincide with the Washington Wizards' first game of the season against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden Friday (one of the 12 briefcases -- yes, only 12 pairs will be sold -- will include a pair of tickets to the game).
No tickets? No problem. The package also includes a watch, the snazzy briefcase the shoes come in, and Wall-branded sunglasses. All of this can be yours for the low, low price of $200.
Those shoes better be worth their weight in gold.
