18 years after its initial release, the iconic Reebok Shaqnosis worn by “The Diesel,” Shaquille O’Neal, makes its long awaited return. The Shaqnosis arguably is the most recognizable sneaker worn by Shaq and one of the most polarizing designs in basketball sneaker history. The design of the Shaqnosis mirrored Shaq’s eccentric personality and his overpowering style of play. Designed for the most unique player of his time, this hypnotic retro stays true to the original. At the time of the initial release in 1995, the basketball and sneaker world never saw a sneaker design quite like the Shaqnosis and even to this day we still have not. Over a white leather base, black nubuck overlays are placed to create a hypnotic look and feel. Shaq’s logo is found on the heel, the end of the laces, and the outsole.
The Reebok Shaqnosis “White/Black” officially drops Friday, July 12th in Men’s ($115) and Kids ($90) sizes at Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST). Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release and check out more detailed photos.
