    Did I manage to get your attention with the title ?
    Of course, I did not mean it seriusly but I certainly feel that way,
    especially Men's tennis shoes.
    Figjam seems to be their only push right now.
    I do not know how long Bonzer's have been on sale and
    Reebok seems to be making only half-hearted attempt to update
    Bonzer series.......
    Does anyone know Reebok's new lineups for this year ?

    Thanks,
    FD

    No clue, but I'm not impressed with their lack of web presence.

    I think the Kickserve II and the 360 DMX are supposed to be the new lineups for this year.

    Web presence is not Reebok's only problem. The entire company is out to lunch on store product placement. A series of events will occur. No one will find Roddick stuff. Potential revenue will be lost. Roddick's contract will expire. Reebok won't have the cash to keep Roddick on the payroll. Roddick will sign with Adidas or Nike. Reebok will complain that they lost a big star to one of the bigger cash cow clothing lines, and I will laugh at Reebok and their miserable business plan. BTW, does anyone know the length of Roddick's contract? He resigned after his freshman year in 2001 for a few years.

    Wow, not even Roddick can save Reebok.... Pathetic.
