Last month Reebok brought back the iconic Shaq Attaq in honor of the 25th anniversary of both the sneaker and Shaquille O’Neal’s NBA debut. Because we love nostalgia — and because they’re great sneakers — ’90s kids went crazy for the rerelease and Reebok took notice.
Since the NBA All-Star Weekend is in New Orleans this weekend, Reebok saw it as the perfect opportunity to yet again honor Shaq, who was a star for LSU before heading off to the NBA. With the help of Louisiana’s very own Sneaker Politics, Reebok paid homage to LSU with new Shaq Attaqs featuring a white leather upper with purple and gold accents throughout along with Sneaker Politics’ “P” logo.
The special “Alma Mater” edition Shaq Attaqs launch in-store at Sneaker Politics’ flagship store at 11:30 AM CT on February 18. Later that evening, they’ll hit online at 8 PM ET.
