We heard the news about Shaq and Damian Lillard’s latest take on the old-school Shaqnosis basketball shoes back in August, but they were hard to get your hands (and feet) on. The shoes, which go for $150, were only available at Sneakers N Stuff. But starting today, the sneakers will be widely available for purchase, including on Reebok.com.
Featuring the hypnotizing concentric circle pattern that made the original model famous, the latest version is done in a black and red colorway to honor Lillard’s team, the Portland Trail Blazers, and is outfitted with both Lillard and Shaq detailing. In addition to the new color combination, the style now features Shaq and Lillard emblem on the heels as well as both Reebok and Adidas branding. (The double branding is an interesting move, because although Adidas has owned Reebok, Adidas just sold it to Authentic Brands Group. There’s a bit of speculation about whether that’s leftover from the official partnership or something that implies the shoes will continue as a collaboration.)
The Shaqnosis shoes launched during Shaq’s own on-court basketball career in 1996 and were initially rereleased in 2013. Over the years, there have been some other iterations of it, too, including one in pink and gray and one from last year’s spooky season done in black with a spiderweb design. The shoes are made with signature Hexalite hexagonal cushioning and a bouncy EVA midsole to boost comfort and support.
For all Reebok shoppers ready to nab a pair, head to the brand’s website now to shop.
