Reebok has teamed with sports-memorabilia provider Steiner Sports to give Shaquille O’Neal fans a chance at the ultimate sneaker collectible.
One thousand signed pairs of O’Neal’s first signature sneaker, the Reebok Shaq Attaq, are now available in their original Orlando Magic colorway in Shaq’s own size, 22.
The massive sneakers will vary from shoe to shoe, with each one featuring personal inscriptions from O’Neal, including his jersey numbers, career statistics and, of course, his unforgettable nicknames, like “The Big Aristotle” and “Shaqtus.” Update: Limited single signed shoes, and unsigned versions, are still available for immediate pre-order,
“For the collector, this is very much the unicorn. We give out very few signed size-22 shoes a year to charity auctions, and they always command big dollars,” O’Neal rep Colin Smeeton said.
The autographed Reebok Shaq Attaq sneakers are priced at $999.32 each, while a size 22 without the autograph can be purchased for $732.
The shoes have begun to ship in mid-September, following O’Neal’s Hall of Fame induction.
