You can brush up on and purchase the most recent Reebok Classic drops on Dr. Jays | Here, before the release of the big fellas throwback treasure on October 4th!
“Years after terrorizing incoming forwards at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, iconic basketball big man Shaquille O’Neill’s Shaq Attaq pro shoe is being unveiled in a new colorway. Meant to pay homage to Shaq’s tenure with the Suns – hence the name “Big Shaqtus” – the sneaker is delivered in a classic purple, black and orange colorway. The first layer of the retro-inspired sneaker finds Reebok‘s classic stripes in orange, while on top of that, soft purple layer creates the rest of the outline. Though on paper an eye-catching shoe, the tones of the Big Shaqtus seem to perfectly compliment other fall staple garments. Look for the “Big Shaqtus” to release at retailers on October 4, coming with a price tag of $140.”
