Li-Ning salutes the recently retired (and TNT hired) Shaquille O'Neal with the release of his first post-retirement shoe, the Shaq Zone. Named after Shaq's 19-year dominance in the paint, the Shaq Zone features a double-layer leather build, pairing black and white leather together on the upper. Black patent trim peaks through overlays along the side panels and collar, while Celtic green accents the look on the inner liner, striped laces and outsole. Shaq's name appears on a tag stitched above the toebox and the backside of the tongue badge, while his famous Dunkman logo is positioned on the heel.
The Shaq Zone released exclusively in China on July 1st.
