Shaquille O'Neal is celebrating his 45th birthday, and to honor his big day we're poking a little fun at him. After all, he has a weekly segment dedicated to roasting foolishness on Inside the NBA. He's even recently been accused of taking things a little too far. Fair is fair.
Before going any further, we have to recognize that it's commendable that Shaq ditched big brand sneaker deals during height of his career to head his own budget-friendly line with a focus on children. Spending hundreds of dollars on sneakers isn't a realistic option for a lot of people, and that's certainly not something that escapes us. For all of the jokes people make about Shaq brand, he's been putting affordable sneakers on feet for about 15 years now, and that's a truly remarkable feat.
Shaq's Dunkman and Platinum sneaker lines have made for easy jokes though in recent years. They've upped the ante on manufacturing direct knockoffs with little, to no shame. From Jordans, to Foams, to D-Roses, Dunkman has a version of just about any popular shoe you can think of. Don't believe us? Check out 30 of the funniest ones we found below.
