Reebok held a press conference at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Tuesday with 15-time NBA All-Star Shaquille O’Neal to announce that retro versions of two of Shaq's classic signature sneakers would be released soon.
The Shaq Attaq and Shaqnosis are both set to make a triumphant return later this year.
The Shaq Attaq, which O’Neal debuted during his rookie season of 1992-1993, made him the face of Reebok. He ripped down backboards at the Meadowlands and in Phoenix while wearing these en route to winning the Rookie of the Year award. The retro version of the Shaq Attaq will hit stores on April 19. They'll cost $160.
The Shaqnosis was worn by O'Neal wore in the 1995-1996 season, his last year in Orlando. He also rocked them in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, as he helped the U.S.A. win a gold medal. The retro version of the Shaqnosis will hit stores on July 19, and they'll cost $125.
Rappers Swizz Beatz and Tyga, who also endorse Reebok, were also on hand for Tuesday's celebration. Reebok recently announced that they would no longer be making new performance basketball sneakers, but they'll still release old-school kicks from their Classics collection. Last month the brand brought back the Kamikaze IIs, which were Shawn Kemp's signature sneakers during the 1995-1996 season.
