Mac Morphs Into Action Figure, Beats Down Monsters In Reebok Ad
Conor McGregor is set to make his highly-anticipated return this Saturday night (Jan. 18, 2020) to face Donald Cerrone in a pivotal Welterweight showdown at UFC 246 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
That means new merchandise and gear is available to celebrate Conor’s return to action. Ahead of the pay-per-view (PPV) event — available exclusively through ESPN+ — Reebok has launched a new shoe design featuring none other that “Notorious” himself.
From the press release.
Reebok announced Zig Kinetica , a groundbreaking new silhouette that channels energy with every stride you take. Reebok is unveiling their biggest shoe drop of 2020 as their partner and MMA’s biggest star, Conor McGregor returns to the Octagon for the first time since October 2018. Conor will serve as the face of the Zig campaign as he embarks on his journey to regain the lightweight title. Zig Kinetica will debut with an unexpected ad starring the legendary fighter as he transforms into an action figure through the power of Zig.
And of it’s no secret Conor loves his Reebok.
“I absolutely love these, the grip, the stability. I feel the connection from the sole to the material,” he said. “I’ve been around with Reebok a long time now, and each launch, the energy level is climbing. Now we are exploding.”
Furthermore, the launch will also feature a limited edition “Zigurine” action figure of Conor, which was hand-crafted by legendary stop motion puppeteer, Andy Gent.
Zig Kinetica will be available for purchase on Reebok.com for $120 on February 21, 2020, though we might see Conor rocking the new kicks during his open workouts and walk down the Octagon to face “Cowboy” later his week.
