Paying homage to Shaquille O’Neal’s championship years with the Lakers, Reebok Classics is set to drop off an all-new ‘Escape From LA’ colorway of his Shaqnosis signature shoe.

The shoe is black-based with a colorful graffiti print on the heel and snakeskin textured overlays — possibly representing Shaq’s former teammate and rival “The Black Mamba.” Branding elements on the tongue and heel are done in Lakers-inspired purple and gold, while red fills in Vectors on the sides. Below, a purple rubber outsole completes the look.

Look for these new Shaq Reebok basketball shoes to release here this Friday, October 18.

Shaquille O’Neal isn’t only the self-proclaimed Man of Steel, he also starred in a feature film by the name of Steel in 1997. In the movie, Shaq assumes the role of John Henry Irons, a character who first appeared in 1993 during the Reign of Supermen! storyline in the Superman comic books. Irons and his partner Susan Sparks create a suit of armor that leads to him becoming a superhero and fighting off his nemesis Nathaniel Burke.

To celebrate Shaq’s history of “Steel,” Reebok Classics has released this special silver-based colorway of Shaq’s most recognizable signature shoe, the Shaqnosis. The “Steel” Shaqnosis features an anodized finished, black hits on the inner lining and midsole and a glowing green outsole to really give the shoe superhero pop.

After originally being released in just the Black/White colorway, the Shaqnosis has now been released in four new colorways this year with more to come.

You can get your hands on Shaq’s iron-inspired Reebok basketball shoes here today. Boys’ sizes are also available.

For the last 18 year, the Reebok Shaqnosis has only been available in one style — a simple black and white colorway that highlighted the shoe’s hypnotic effect and was worn by Shaquille O’Neal during the ’95-’96 NBA season. Following the highly anticipated return of the Shaqnosis last month, Reebok releases the first ever “new” colorway of the classic model today.

Part of the brand’s “Florida Rivalry Pack,” this pair is inspired by Shaq’s original team — the Orlando Magic. The shoe sports alternating black nubuck and blue patent panels with magic stars along the heel. Speckled laces and a translucent rubber outsole help complete the look.
