In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Reebok Shaq Attaq this year, Reebok is introducing a twist on the original, called the Shaq Attaq Modern.

The Shaq Attaq Modern was designed to be closer to the current trend of contemporary basketball sneakers, featuring a woven mesh upper in place of the traditional leather, which helps to reduce the overall weight of the shoe while keeping the structure of the original in place.

The collar features a foam compound with net mesh overlay to provide padding around the ankles, along with custom Pump technology for an adjustable fit. Minimal stitching gives way to hot melt throughout while also providing dimension through the use of technical lightweight synthetics on the upper.  

Featured in an all-over yellow spark color with sublimated black stripe down the middle, the Shaq Attaq Modern colorway was inspired by one of Shaq’s many nicknames.

Shaq recently visited Reebok Headquarters in Canton, Mass. to test out the shoes on court in a pick-up game, and judging from the video clips the shoes work just fine.

The Shaq Attaq Modern is now available for $159.99 and is now available at, Finish Line and select Reebok retailers.
