Retro sneakers are usually given a snappy title that reminds us of an athlete’s history—kind of like the Brick Citys or the Trail Blazers. This pair, however, was curiously just titled “Shaq Attaq Purple/Yellow.” What gives?
These kicks look a lot like a tribute to the Diesel’s days as an Louisiana State University Tiger, but that school is partnered with Nike, which may explain the curious title. We’re just going to call them the “LSU’s” (along with the rest of the Internet, apparently).
They feature purple and yellow tiger-esque stripes, and they’re pieced together with suede and leather.
You can pick up these kicks at retailers like Finish Line, Champs, Eastbay, Jimmy Jazz, DTLR and Reebok.com for $159.99 starting Feb. 14.
