As long as it works!!! 1 in 3 pairs I get from the Reebok Factory don't even inflate! Either the valve is screwed or they just put in a pathetic effort making them. I have 7 sets of them ranging in era. This years is just shocking manufacturing... You'd think they could test em before asking someone to dish out $100 for the product. Wt heck are you doing Reebok!
