Editor's Pick

Having first profiled NFL player JJ Watt, Reebok now turns its attention to a different kind of hero -- war veteran, amputee and athlete Sgt. Matthew Melancon -- in the next spot to come out of its "Hunt Greatness" themed campaign.

The inspirational spot, by Iris Atlanta, explains how Melancon has overcome incredible obstacles in his personal hunt for greatness -- he had a double amputation after being injured in Afghanistan, 22 surgeries and is now in training to become part of Team USA's Boardercross team.

It was released in time for Veterans' Day last week in honor of Reebok's new "Military Edition" colorway of the JJ I signature training shoe.
