Reebok Pays Homage To Shaquille O’Neal’s College Days With The Shaq Attaq “LSU Tigers”

What’s the first thing that you think of when you see the photo of the Reebok Shaq Attaq sneakers above? The Los Angeles Lakers, right?! Shaquille O’Neal did lead the Lakers to a handful of championships during his NBA career, so it definitely wouldn’t be a bad idea for Reebok to create a pair of Shaq Attaqs inspired by the Lakers colorway. But the truth is that, for their latest Shaq Attaq colorway, Reebok actually dug deeper and drew inspiration from Shaq’s college basketball career. The result? The Reebok Shaq Attaq “LSU Tigers” sneaker that you see here that was inspired by the LSU colors.

Considering the fact that Reebok has been going in with the Reebok Shaqnosis colorways lately, it’s not surprising to see them do the same thing with the Shaq Attaq. But we have to admit that we did not see this particular colorway coming. People often forget about Shaq’s college days, and he’s not often mentioned as one of the all-time college basketball greats. But Reebok decided to do something different here by paying homage to LSU, which is where Shaq honed his craft and eventually turned himself into the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft. The Shaq Attaq “LSU Tigers” sneaker features hits of purple and gold throughout with a bunch of tiger stripes on the heel that really make this sneaker unique.

Unfortunately, Reebok hasn’t announced when these sneakers will be released yet. But because they are inspired by Shaq’s college, we would expect them to hit stores sometime this fall when both the LSU football and basketball teams are making noise. When they do, do you think that you’ll be picking a pair up? We doubt that very many people out there have a Shaq LSU jersey. But the good thing about this sneaker is that, even though it was created with LSU in mind, it will still go perfectly with a Lakers jersey.

Is that enough to get you to buy a pair of Shaq Attaq “LSU Tigers”?
