This year marks the 25th anniversary since Shaquille O’Neal wore LSU Tigers‘ uniform for the first time. As a way to highlight those remarkable years, where O’Neal earned two All-American titles, two SEC Player of the Year, and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Player of the Year Award, Reebok Classic will be issuing a special Shaq Attaq edition. In Purple and Yellow, the design took its inspiration from Louisiana State University‘s purple and gold colorway. Embossed with tiger stripes pattern and a “Shaq” leather hangtag featuring a silhouette of O’Neal dunking, the shoe, which is also known as “LSU Tigers” in some circle, will be available on Valentine’s Day, February 14. Retail price set at $159.99 USD, check your local Finish Line, Foot Locker, Champs Sports, Jimmy Jazz, and DTLR for availability. The special edition will also launch through Eastbay and Reebok.com online stores.
