The Shaq Attaq was perhaps the biggest bring-back sneaker story of 2013, but Reebok ain't about to put it back in the archives to collect dust again. The push for new colourways continues, with this purple and yellow banger the next one up. Your immediate thought might be that it's a Lakers-inspired joint, but the imagery Reebok have supplied suggests otherwise – it's the colours of Shaq's alma mater, Louisiana State University, that provided the palette here. That lurking Tiger in the pic above is a call out to the LSU Fighting Tigers mascot. The Shaq Attaq purple/yellow will hit retailers on Friday, February 14th at retailers including Finish Line, Foot Locker, Champs, Eastbay, Jimmy Jazz, DTLR and Reebok.com.
