We have seen “Steel,” “Magic,” and the original black/white colorways of the Reebok Shaqnosis. The shoe, which was once considered polarizing, now pays homage to Shaquille O’Neal’s time with the Miami Heat. Shaq helped Dwyane Wade win his first NBA Championship as the starting center on the 2006 Heat squad. The Reebok Shaqnosis “Heat” alternates white leather and shiny red patent leather in the celebrated hypnosis pattern on the upper. The pattern makes its way down to the midsole, as well. Black hits on the Reebok vector logo, match the black tongue and laces that balance the extravagant design. Yellow coloring on the inner lining remind us of both the Heat uniforms, and complete the nod to the Miami squad.
Earlier this week, we showed you the Reebok Shaqnosis “Steel” that will release in the near future. However, we have now received an official Reebok Shaqnosis Black/Blue release date. The brand new colorway of the Reebok Classics sneaker features interchanging black nubuck and blue patent leather in a spiral pattern. The hypnotic theme continues on to the black and blue midsole. The shoe is taken up a notch with a translucent blue outsole. Reebok vectors stitched on the medial and lateral insteps match the silver Shaq Dunkman logo on the toe box. In celebration of the of O’Neal’s time with the Orlando Magic, stars are added to the recognizable Dunkman logo on the heel counter. Two-colored laces literally tie everything together for a clean finish.
Were you able to get your hands on the Reebok Shaq Attaq that dropped back in April? If not, hope is revived with the Reebok Shaq Attaq Black/Blue. The second colorway of the classic sneaker features black textured nubuck overlaying full grain leather of the same color. Bright blue hits on the ankle collar, tongue, and midsole provides contrast that brightens up the look. The Shaq Attaq features fully functional Pump technology. White Reebok lettering on the lateral Reebok vector finishes things off.
Award shows are always a place for fashion, and a trend or two is usually started on one of the various red carpets. Last night, however, Chris Brown showcased just how good the Reebok Shaqnosis looks on foot on stage. Brown and his team of dancers took to the 2013 BET Awards stage rocking the black and white OG colorway of the Reebok Classics model. The hypnotizing sneaker is made up to be an exact replica of the shoes Shaquille O’Neal wore during the 1995-96 NBA season. The Shaqnosis was polarizing when it first released, but fans seem to have a greater appreciation for them. The Reebok Shaqnosis will release at key retailers on Friday, July 12. Did seeing them during Chris Brown’s performance change your thoughts on the shoe?
Reebok has come with serious heat lately by returning some of our favorite signature sneakers to retailers. After the return of the Reebok Shaq Attaq, fans pined for the Reebok Shaqnosis. You now have your chance. The hypnotic sneaker will release in its original black and white colorway on Friday, July 12 for $115. This is a week ahead of the previous announced release date. The Reebok Shaqnosis was not universally accepted when it released during the 1995-96 NBA season. People either loved or hated the sneaker. The large black and white spiraled designed popped off of television screens, and turned heads when worn on the street. Today, that has seemed to changed, as many are anticipating their arrival. Ten dollars cheaper than the original list price, has the Reebok Shaqnosis updated release info caused them to creep up your list to cop?
