Reebok’s ‘90s “Blacktop” Basketball Collection Returns with “Shaq Attaq” April 14.
Reebok has confirmed an April 14 return for the Shaq Attaq “Blacktop” (HR0501, $180), a unique iteration of Shaq’s first signature basketball sneaker from Reebok’s iconic ‘90s “Blacktop” product range built for outdoor play.
Reebok first released “Blacktop” in 1991, applying distinct design elements like durable materials and vibrant color pops and patterning to complement the style of play, creativity, and attitude of players on the Blacktop, free from the walls (and rules) of a gymnasium. The 2023 Shaq Attaq “Blacktop” incorporates that same design language for OGs and a new generation.
Issued in ’92 for the larger-than-life rookie star, “Shaq Attaq” became Shaq’s first signature shoe. It combined new “Shaq” branding elements with innovative Reebok technologies like a custom-fit Pump bladder and carbon fiber footplate, putting on display Reebok’s disruptive approach to performance footwear. Most importantly, the shoe provided Shaq with best-in-class comfort and stability on court as he broke countless rims and records.
Reebok’s Shaq Attaq “Blacktop” (HR0501, $180) is available beginning April 14 from Foot Locker.
Reebok’s ‘Pump TZ’ Retro Hoops Shoe Returns in “Neon Cherry” April 14
Reebok has confirmed an April 14 return for its Pump TZ “Neon Cherry” (HQ8802, $170), an OG colorway for the iconic Pump basketball model from the early ‘90s.
Following its coveted 2022 collaboration with high-fashion house Maison Margiela and the model’s first general re-release since the early 2010’s this past February, Reebok’s Pump TZ returns once again this month, this time in its vibrant “Neon Cherry” colorway.
The eye-catching Pump TZ model first hit courts in 1990 with its distinct high-cut design, groundbreaking Pump technology, and TPU re-enforced upper placing it amongst the most disruptive performance basketball sneakers on the market during that time.
