Swizz Beatz Hints At Reebok Shaq Return
It seems like Nike/Jordan is dominating the game with its sick onslaught of releases (2012 All-Star, Air Yeezy 2, OG Air Jordans, shall we go on), but it really is an open field of opportunity for other brands right now. Reebok is definitely taking the initiative to make their way back into the limelight, although yesterday’s news of the a retooled Shaqnosis named the Reebok Shaqnosis 2012 coerced lurkers to chime in with their thoughts – and it certainly wasn’t smiles all around. However, this latest update with reverse those frowns as Swizz Beatz, Reebok’s frontman for lifestyle footwear, hints at a return of the original Reebok Shaqnosis as well as the Reebok Shaq Attaq – proving that the brand is ready to bring out its most memorable classics from the 90′s in original form, while still giving them a contemporary spin on the side, althoughit has been confirmed that the Shaqnosis 2012 revamp sample will not release. Your thoughts on the return of the Reebok Shaq signature line? Let us know what you think in the comments below and we’ll keep you updated with this exciting development.
Update: It has been confirmed that the Reebok Shaq will return in 2013. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates!
This is awesome!!!! would buy two of the Attaq and one of the Shaqnosis!!! dont care if I dont pay rent, I wont miss these!
Swizz states nothing but the real thing, and "let's not play games with SHAQ" well then release the OG pairs dude if u want to "keep it a real thing"
If they retro Shaqnosis, I will copp it would be my first reeboks in nearly a decade. Reebok prices were always decent
I wonder if they will rename it due to copyright type stuff. Fila released the Hill 2s n renamed them the fila 95. I asked cuz when shaq started selling his shoes at Walmart,Payless, Kmart, ect the shoes still had the "dunkman" symbol so I assumed they he owned the rights to that symbol-not reebok. I don't know bout the actual name "SHAQ". It would be cool if they resign him kinda like what Nike is doing with the penny line. Reebok could make a big impact-just retro all the Kemps, Question&Answers, Shaqs,Emmitt Smiths, & Big Hurts. Also the Dee brown dunk contest pumps again-JB retros some of the same shoes over and over and they always sell n I think reebok has some "classics" that would sell the same.
I really hope Reebok goes through with the retros. Too bad no stores near me get anything other than Nike or Air Jordan.
i am toooooooooooo hyped for these to release. been hoping reebok get on it and retroed these and seems my wish is coming true...instant cop!!
Yeah this is great news all around because Reebok had some classic kicks in the 90's. If they release all those classic shoes in OG form that would have to make Nike step up n stop putting out these half breed mutations that they mix with some of the OG shoes.
I cannot understand why it has taken Reebok so long to get on this money boat. It couldn't have taken that much money to get Shaq back while he was playing. This is basically free money: no new design costs, no new templates to make, will sell w/o much marketing, etc. Just sell it and we will buy. I'm really hoping they keep the quality level high and it takes a bite out of Nike to make Nike rethink they're substandard releases.
I'd cop the PUMPs. I c Reebok changed their mind on releasing that BS they showed yesterday...lol.. Keep it OG! STOP PLAYIN wit my money!!
I reaaaally want the original Shaq Attaq and the white/purple Shaq Steel. I've been a huge Shaq fan growing up, but the only shoes I was able to own were the black Shaq Attaq IV and the white Shaq Dunkmob.
YES! these in their original form will be dope. On a side note, i hope Converse brings the Aero Jam back as well.
man thats BEYOND AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! robocopped, oops excuse me INSTAcopped (no matter that they don't have instapump, at least these 2 pairs)! YESSIR!!!
Yes! Release some of the Kemp line as well! Ahhhh the 90's. When Reebok was actually competing with Nike.
make this happen ASAP, make up were Nike fails release the classics in orginal form. C'mon Reebok I pulling for yall I been waiting on this shoe for forever
do NOT let swizz beats anywhere NEAR the shaq attaq. bring it back, BUT ONLY in original form. and definitely in the black/blue colorway!
werd with the typical reebok quality reebok quality quality> adidas quality> fila quality> payless quality> nike quality
Absolutely on the Run N Slams. Had the black with purple/red underlay back in 9th grade. Back to the matter at hand though, 100% pumped on the Shaq Attaq's. Right up there with the neon green Twilight Zones for my favorite Reebok shoe ever.
