Despite his dominance, Shaquille O'Neal ended his career as one of the most high-profile journeymen in NBA history. Paying homage to two of the stops along the trail of Shaq's Hall of Fame career, Reebok Classics releasing the Shaqnosis "Florida Rivalry Pack," featuring Orlando Magic and Miami Heat colorways.
In 1992, Shaq entered the league with the Magic and spent four seasons with the team before signing a free agent deal with the Lakers in 1996. Saluting Shaq's original team, the Shaqnosis is decked out in black and royal blue, while a contrasting white outsole sits below.
Following a fallout with Lakers owner Jerry Buss and teammate Kobe Bryant, Shaq was traded from the Lakers to the Miami Heat in 2004. He played three and a half seasons in South Beach and helped guide the Heat to a championship in 2006. Celebrating Shaq's stay in Miami, the Shaqnosis receives a red, white and black look, complete with a subtle yellow hit along the interior.
Additionally, both shoes feature 3M reflective paneling.
Look for the Reebok Shaqnosis "Florida Rivalry Pack" to hit retail sometime in August.
