Yesterday we saw the release date and first full look at the "Escape From LA" edition of the Shaqnosis, and now come the official images.

The shoe's inclusion of snakeskin in the upper is curious for a shoe themed "Escape From LA," considering Shaq was also leaving Kobe behind, following their '04 Finals defeat at the hands of the Pistons.  Could these have also been called the "Escape from Kobe?" 

As a reminder, this shoe launches October 18th, and retails for $115. They'll be available at retailers such as Foot Locker, Finish Line, Jimmy Jazz, Villa, Shoe Palace and reebok.com.
