WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- "That's awesome," Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says in a video released by Adidas.
The company posted the video featuring RGIII on YouTube on July 22. Adidas says the video captures Griffin's reaction to the Springblade running shoe, which will be released at retailers nationwide on August 1.
Adidas says the shoe has "blade technology."
"This shoe helps you when it comes to developing the mechanics to move fast," says RGIII in the video. "Sometimes you need that extra spring, hence the name Springblade."
The quarterback then introduces the shoe and holds it up for the camera.
Will RGIII's push for the shoe be enough? Only time will tell.
