↵According to ESPN's Fran Fraschilla, the shoe will be called The Rooster, coming from Gallinari's nickname. It would be safe to assume, because of how much the shoe looks like Yao Ming's Beijing Games kicks, that the shoe uses the Pump Omni HexRide that will be a big part of the fall line of Reebok shoes.
