The clean Mardi Gras-inspired Primeknit-constructed Gazelle isn’t the only collaboration Sneaker Politics has on tap for the upcoming weekend. In celebration of this weekend’s NBA All-Star festivities in New Orleans, the Louisiana-based outfit has joined forces with Reebok on a special “Alma Mater” edition of Shaquille O’Neal’s old Shaq Attaq. Paying homage to Shaq’s LSU career (which, among other accolades, saw him take home National Player of the Year honors in 1992), the kicks don a predominately white leather upper with purple and gold accents throughout as Sneaker Politics’ signature “P” logo decorates the custom insoles.
Look for the “Alma Mater” rendition of the Shaq Attaq to launch in-store at Sneaker Politics’ brand new flagship at 11:30 a.m. CT this Saturday, February 18, with a special appearance from Dee Brown and Shaq himself. An online release is set to follow at 7 p.m. CT/8 p.m. ET later that night.
