Inspired by the backboards Shaq brought down during his early days in Orlando, the shoe sports a cracked blue "shattered glass" synthetic upper, black basketball textured overlays and white Vector branding. White also works the Pump and lace tabs, while grey adds to the look on the tongue and collar. Striped laces mimic the old pinstriped Magic uniforms, and white and blue return to finish off the sole.
