Reebok Shaq Attaq Dons the “Man of Steel” Outfit

Shaq's love for Superman spills over into his Reebok shoe.


Shaquille O’Neal’s (or fondly known as Shaq) obsession with DC Comics’ Superman is a known fact about the court’s Big Man. His arm is tattooed prominently with the superhero’s logo while his (many) cars sport the iconic emblem. A lesser known fact is that Shaq, too, was the literal man of “Steel” — as in, the 1997 film in which the basketball star played the titular main hero. Coincidentally, Steel was also loosely based off the DC hero of the same name.

It’s a full circle moment that DC Comics and Reebok are banding together for a DC Comics x Reebok Shaq Attaq “Man of Steel” collaboration. As suggested by its name, the upper opts for a primarily two-tone gray look. Dark gray overlays are paired with steely lighter gray unders that extend into the soles. Superman’s brandishing colors, blue and red, are utilised as accents on leather-like panels. Reebok’s logo takes on a sunny yellow, perhaps a nod to Superman’s alternative red-yellow logo. To drive the collaboration home, the tongue’s Pump depicts the S-logo while the heel is embroidered with “Man of Steel”.

This DC Comics x Reebok Shaq Attaq “Man of Steel” is slated to drop on 2 Dec and will retail for US$180. More pictures available in the slider gallery above.

In other anticipated collaborations, check out this upcoming BAIT x Astro Boy x Reebok that’s retro-futuristic.
