We told you it was coming…and now it’s almost here.

On April 19, 2013, after months of buzz and hype, Reebok Classics will be bringing back the Shaq Attaq. And Shaquille O’Neal is onboard with the signature re-release.

Via an email from the folks over at Reebok’s HQ:

A highly anticipated bringback from 1992, the Reebok Classic Shaq Attaq drops with a very limited launch on Friday, April 19th for $160 at key retailers including Jimmy Jazz, Shiekh, Villa, City Gear, DTLR, Shoe Palace, and on Reebok.com.

The legendary Shaq Attaq features Pump technology on the tongue, which gained tremendous equity with players at the time. Providing the ultimate in lightweight technology, the Shaq Attaq features Graphlite. A first of its kind lightweight technology, Graphlite is a plastic, incredibly strong fiber which allowed Reebok to strip away heavy rubber to create a sleeker, lighter silhouette. Graphlite technology keeps the shoe light, while still providing incredible stability.  From a design perspective, the Shaq Attaq reflects the brightness of Orlando blue, the silhouette takes color phenomenally and was the perfect bold look for a player like Shaq.
