They're finally back!  The Reebok Shaqnosis returns tomorrow, July 12th for the first time since its original release in 1996.  Agreed by most to be Shaq's best signature shoe ever (the Shaq Attaq I is really the only one to come close), sneaker collectors have long been asking and hoping for a re-release of the most hypnotizing shoe ever.  

Before we all try to pick up a pair or the retro Shaqnosis tomorrow, let's go back to the 1995-96 NBA season and take a look at the original size 22's on the feet of Shaq.  You may notice that his PE pairs are a little different, with a higher cut and the Instapump system for extra support.  You'll have to hunt those down on eBay, but if you're satisfied with the retail version, tomorrow is your day to grab one of the most iconic basketball shoes of all time.
