From his ferocious dunks to his legendary personality, Shaquille O’Neal shaped the game in ways no other player ever did. His larger than life play inspired a shoe as big as the man that wore them: The Shaq Attaq.
After 20+ years, the Reebok Shaq Attaq in its original colorway was finally re-released and to much appraise. I remember growing up watching Shaq and seeing him wear the Shaq Attaq and always wanting a pair. I even have the Hallmark ornament of Shaq where he is wearing these. My parents couldn't afford to get them for me as a kid but I never forgot about them. Fast forward to the present and they came back! Now I was able to afford them and am happy to say I was able to get a pair.
The shoe is amazing in person, great quality and comfort. One of the best releases of 2013 for sure. Cannot wait for more colorways as those will be bought as well. Next up, the white/black Shaqnosis in July which is another pair I wanted as a kid and couldn't have. Hopefully luck will be in my favor again and I will be able to score a part of these as well. Thank you Reebok for bringing Shaq Back!
