As the NBA prepares to take over New Orleans for All-Star Weekend, a local boutique is paying homage to one of Louisiana State University's most famous alums.
Teaming up with Reebok Classics, Sneaker Politics presents the "Alma Mater" Shaq Attaq, an all-new colorway of Shaquille O'Neal's first signature shoe inspired by the Tigers' scheme. O'Neal spent three seasons at LSU, winning National Player of the Year honors in 1992.
A purple-based "LSU" Shaq Attaq previously released in 2014. This pair appears to feature blocking more consistent with the original, complete with Sneaker Politics branding.
While all details haven't been announced, the Sneaker Politics x Reebok Shaq Attaq "Alma Mater" will release next Saturday, Feb. 18.
