Wei shen awareness band red

Wei Shen wearing a red awareness band.

  • Awareness Band (Red) - "Wrist Injury Awareness!"
The description of this item makes reference to July 26, 2007, when television pundit Stephen Colbert broke his wrist and subsequently launched a "WristStrong" bracelet line to bring awareness to wrist-based injuries. Though his cast was removed on-air on August 23, he continues to wear his "WristStrong" awareness bracelet during broadcasts of The Colbert Report.
  • Ikoze Sports Watch
The Ikoze Sports Watch likely refers to Casio's G-Shock watch series, which are tough and comes in many colors, hence the in-game description of the watches which contains the word "indestructible". The in-game Ikoze Sports Watches also come in many colors.
