The Reebok Shaqnosis “Barracks” Sneakers Pay Tribute To Shaquille O’Neal’s Military Background

Submitted by on August 26, 2013 – 9:58 amNo Comment

During his lengthy NBA career, Shaquille O’Neal spent a lot of time moving around. Even though he’s one of the best players in NBA history, Shaq spent time with a handful of teams, including the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, and Miami Heat, during his time in the league. But by the time he got to that point in his life, he was already pretty used to moving around a lot. That’s because he actually moved around a lot when he was a kid because his stepfather Phillip Harrison was in the Army. So when they designed their latest colorway of the Reebok Shaqnosis, Reebok decided to pay tribute to that time in Shaq’s life.

The result is the Reebok Shaqnosis “Barracks.” It features hits of military green and khaki, black accents, and camouflage on the interior, which give it a really militaristic feel. It doesn’t really look like the kind of sneaker you would want to wear out on the basketball court. But we could definitely see folks pairing these with a pair of fatigues or camo shorts and rocking them that way. The “Barracks” colorway will be a hit amongst those who love the Shaqnosis sneaker and want to wear a pair to do something other than play basketball.

At this point, we imagine that Reebok will probably tone down the number of Shaqnosis releases that they put out in the coming weeks. They’ve hit us over the head with quite a few this summer (not that we’re complaining!). But if that’s true, we’re glad they added something like this to the Shaqnosis arsenal before doing so. Because this is a dope sneaker that we can really appreciate.

Do you feel the same way? If so, the Shaqnosis “Barracks” will go on sale this Friday through select Reebok retailers. Check out additional images of the “Barracks” below.
