Over two decades since their debut on the feet of rookie sensation Shaquille O’Neal, the Reebok Shaq Attaq “Away” will be making its much-anticipated return to BAIT on August 30! The self-proclaimed Most Dominant Ever wore these in that memorable first season, which was filled with monstrous dunks, shattered backboards, and capped with the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award. Its eye-catching black and azure blue color scheme was originally designed to match Shaq’s Orlando Magic road uniform, which O’Neal would go on to wear for the next four years.
The shoe features a heavy dose of black leather and textured suede overlays, accented by bright blue synthetic on the ankle collar and up the tongue. The legendary Pump system is controlled via the basketball-shaped mechanism that sits at the top of the tongue, allowing wearers to customize the fit by filling internal bladders with air. Shaq’s retro Dunkman logo is stitched onto the back and bold old-school slogans are printed on the insoles, capturing the true aura of early 90’s sneakers.
The Reebok Shaq Attaq “Away” releases in limited quantities on August 30 at the BAIT flagship store in Diamond Bar, CA and on BAITme.com.
