Today is a memorable day for Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson fans across the globe; the two hardwood legends are set to be inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame this Friday. To commemorate their great achievements, Reebok Classics is releasing just 115 limited edition pairs of the iconic Shaq Attaq and Question silhouettes—dubbed the “16 Hoop Hall” Pack. Each pair is swathed in lavish Italian Pellegrini leather, gold accents can be observed on their heel caps, and both are topped off with sleek metallic finishes. Not to mention, both basketball luminaries penned a heartfelt message to their fans which are inscribed on the insoles of their respective shoes. You can read each of their messages below.
The exclusive “16 Hoop Hall” Pack is priced at $275 USD for each pair and will release today at Reebok.com.
It’s been a long journey in this game and I can truly say that I’ve loved every part of it. I set out to be the most dominant player ever, but stats don’t validate my career. The respect of my peers and love from the fans are my biggest validation. This induction is only a part of what makes my career so special. This other is you, the fans. Without your love & support, I would never have become the Big Diesel. From the bottom of my heart, I give you the big thank you.
This induction is a tribute to everybody that helped me – my family, my friends, my fans. I want so much for the people that stuck with me through everything, I want them to feel good about it/ I want them to feel like they’re Hall of Famers. Everybody that was with me throughout the ride, I want them to be proud of themselves for helping me get to such a high level. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
