Shaquille O’Neal’s Reebok Shaqnosis Will Be Re-Released Next Month

Submitted by on June 27, 2013 – 10:37 am2 Comments

Back in the 1990s, Reebok took a big risk and signed Shaquille O’Neal to a sneaker endorsement deal. Although Shaq was a huge star in the NBA, it’s been notoriously difficult for sneaker companies to sell shoes endorsed by big men over the years. And Shaq was no different. Because his sneakers are so damn big and because he requires so much foot and ankle support, Reebok struggled to create sneakers that would do well commercially. So Shaq’s Reebok sneakers didn’t enjoy a ton of success back in the 1990s. Sure, some sneakerheads and basketball players loved them. But the vast majority of people stuck with Nike and Air Jordan sneakers back then.

These days, Shaq’s Reebok sneakers are enjoying a bit of a resurgence. Now that retro sneakers are all the rage, people have been clamoring for re-releases of Shaq’s signature Reebok sneakers. And Reebok is listening. Earlier this year, they re-released the Reebok Shaq Attaq. And they are also planning on re-releasing the Reebok Shaqnosis next month as well. The sneakers, which Shaq wore during his days with the Orlando Magic, are black and white and are supposed to look “hypnotizing” as you can see by the design implemented on the upper part of the sneaker. If they were released for the first time today, they would probably be a dud. But because of the history of these sneakers, they’re guaranteed to be a hit.

So when can you get your hands on a pair? Fortunately, Reebok won’t be waiting long at all to deliver these to the world. They’re going to be released on July 12 through select Reebok retailers for $115. What do you think about Reebok re-releasing these so quickly after hitting us with the Shaq Attaqs? Will you be picking a pair of these up? Do you remember when these first dropped? Leave a comment and let us know.
