Reebok ATV 19+ Training Shoes: The Most Bizarre Fitness Tech Ever?

These may be the most ridiculous high-tech training shoes ever made.

Reebok's new training shoe - the ATV 19+ - have been made in conjunction with UFC star Rampage Jackson, who is a real person, by the way, with a very specific intention...

Reebok say they feature "irregular lugs, rugged overlays, a padded tongue and supportive collar" and have been made with the highest specifications.

The shoes are clearly distinctive, and will be released on February 1.

But as a test, what do you think Reebok's explanation for the startling design actually is?
