Before adidas look to officially offload their Reebok brand to Authentic Brands in the first quarter of 2022, they’ve got one last brand crossover in store. After a cross collab from Shaq and Dame DOLLA on the Trailblazer’s signature shoe back in June, the duo returns for a special-edition delivery of Diesel’s Reebok Shaqnosis
Reminiscent of the model’s collaboration with “Hot Ones,” the pair presents in Trailblazers hues of black and red, with pops of white referencing Portland’s home strip. adidas-branded medial panels are a strange sight, though a more familiar Vector logo on the lateral. Co-branding appears on the heels, with Shaq’s square typeface hitting the left heel, and Dame’s Sonic-inspired D motif on the right completes the design.
A release date for the Reebok Shaqnosis “Shaq v Lillard” has been set by Euro retailers Overkill and BSTN for midnight on September 1st. A Stateside drop date is now confirmed for October 19th.
