Hall of Famer, Patrick Roy has teamed up with Reebok Canada and Zellers to
launch a new collection of athletic footwear - LogoAthletic, A Reebok Company
- available exclusively at Zellers stores across Canada.
A brand new collection in athletic footwear synonymous with comfort and
great design, LogoAthletic meets the quality standards of performance.
"Patrick Roy was a natural choice for us as the ambassador for LogoAthletic.
He's a great athlete who always sets the highest performance standards in
everything he does. Patrick is bilingual and he is a household name throughout
Canada," explained Reebok Canada General Manager Len Rhodes. "We have a rich
history and a long-term relationship with Patrick, working with him in
supplying his goalie equipment throughout his career."
Patrick Roy said how proud he was to be associated with LogoAthletic, A
Reebok Company. "The Quebec Remparts wear LogoAthletic shoes on the road and
in training. LogoAthletic has also created gym wear especially for us with the
same brand design. It's another way to create a sense of us all belonging to
the same team," mentioned Mr. Roy.
Reebok selected Quebec City as the launch site for its new LogoAthletic
collection, not only because Patrick Roy hails from there, but also because it
is a key market for Zellers. "Zellers has been a major partner with Reebok for
