Get Ready For A Shaq Attaq On January 20th

A new year means a chance to get new sneakers. Reebok will be helping you add to your collections with their latest retro sneaker. This winter Reebok brings back one of its greatest basketball sneakers of all time: the original Shaquille O’Neal signature model from 1992. As popular as any other signature basketball shoe on the market when it dropped at the height of hype surrounding the league’s new backboard-shattering giant on the court, the Shaq Attaq returns in 2017 for its only second-ever retro run to celebrate its 25th Anniversary in 2017.

The bold signature shoe featuring Pump technology and a Graphlite midfoot shank (the first use of carbon fiber in a basketball shoe ever) returns in its most beloved colorway, the original “Orlando” look in black and white with metallic blue collars and tongues.

The Reebok Shaq Attaq OG arrives January 20th at FinishLine, Champs, Shiekh, Reebok.com and select Reebok retailers nationwide.

“I always try to have a playlist that’s not too high not too low for games. Try to have the right amount of hype and energy but at the same time not too hype or too low on energy. That’s what this playlist is for me. Once I hit the field for the game I take it up another notch.” – Martellus Bennett
