The legendary Shaquille O’Neal has re-teamed with Reebok to bring some of his classic sneakers back, and BAIT is happy to announce that the first release – the Reebok Shaq Attaq – will be available through the site on April 19!
The Shaq Attaq is O’Neal’s first signature shoe, released during his rookie year in 1992 – long before he was known as “The Diesel,” “Most Dominant Ever,” “Superman,” “Shaqtus,” “The Big Shamrock,” “Wilt Chamberneezy,” and before he became the four-time champion whose jersey sits in the Staples Center rafters. The sneaker’s bold lines and ever-popular Pump technology were designed to match the larger-than-life personality of a young center with a bright future.
The Shaq Attaq makes its return in the original white, black, and royal blue color scheme that matches the Orlando Magic’s home jerseys. The old-school “SHAQ” and Dunkman logos still sit on the heel and tongue, recalling the days when the life-sized O’Neal cardboard standees stood at every shoe retailer.
The Reebok Shaq Attaq will be available through BAITme.com and at BAIT’s flagship Diamond Bar store on April 19 for a retail price of $160 (please note: no phone orders will be accepted). Be sure to follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-minute information as the release date nears!
