Reebok Classic Announces New Shaqnosis “Escape from LA”
It looks as if Reebok is trying to release a new set of kicks every Friday. After dropping “Acid Rain” on sneakerheads across the country last week (Oct. 11), the worldwide shoe brand is gearing up for the latest edition of Shaquille O’Neal’s Shaqnosis line, “Escape from LA,” to hit stores this Friday (Oct. 18).
As Reebok continues to honor its partnership with Shaq, the sneaker conglomerate is releasing another limited edition shoe to salute one of the NBA star’s many career-defining moments. The black sneaker is highlighted with a gold, purple and red colorway to signify the doctor’s trade from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Miami Heat in 2004.
“[Shaq's] departure [from the Lakers] would become one of the most defining moments for both storied franchises,” says Reebok. [And his] golden days in Los Angeles and Miami would go down as some of the greatest in his career.”
The Shaqnosis “Escape from LA” retails at $115, and is available for purchase at key retailers including Foot Locker, Finish Line, Jimmy Jazz, Villa, Shoe Palace and reebok.com.
