Reebok Shaq Attaq Azure Blue
Over 20 years after it originally released, the Reebok Shaq Attaq “Away” in black and Azure Blue returned to stores as a retro in 2013. Originally released in 1992, the Shaq Attaq got its name from Shaquille O’Neal’s ability to attack the rim with avengeance. It will come as a no surprise to fans that have come to know him as a commentator on Inside the NBA, but Shaquille O’Neal was not just one of the most dominant forces in the NBA, he was also one of the most entertaining players off the court. Shaq once made the famous statement, “I just want to play the game, drink Pepsi, wear Reebok” as a rookie, much to his new sponsor’s delight. As Shaq’s first signature sneaker, the Reebok Shaq Attaq was a part of a massive onslaught of endorsements for Shaquille O’Neal that included Shaq’s “dunkman” logo that debuted on the original Shaq Attaq back in 1992. As a member of the Orlando Magic, the black Shaq Attaq with blue accents around the heel and across the tongue became known as the “Away” colorway, amongst sneaker enthusiasts. The Shaq Attaq features Reebok’s The Pump system along with a leather upper and nubuck overlays including the famous “vector” stripes on the side. The Black and Azure blue Reebok Shaq Attaq released in August of 2013 and was seen on the feet of celebs like Bow Wow, Joe Budden, Rick Ross and many more.
