O’Neal is very famous in the NBA history. When O’Neal was playing basketball in the game, his brave was unparallel, and when he met with his basketball fans, another comedy actor was show up. People gave a high reward to O’Neal. Under such an influence, the old saying still goes, “The Center does not sell shoes”.
The first thing that we will talk about is not O’Neal’s footwear but something that related to his shoes. First is O’Neal’s feet: his US22 yards shoes, which is more than EUR60 yards, that is to say the length from an adult male’s finger to his wrist, even Yao Ming wears 56 yards, who is taller than O’Neal.
O’Neal fans knew that O’Neal’s first contract company is Reebok, but not Nike. However, Nike’s in fact O’Neal’s favorite company that he wanted to make a contract, but Nike manager did not pay much attention to this black sturdy and flexible pace big man when O’Neal visited the Nike headquarters. So Nike Roshe Run angrily, O’Neal lightning signed with Reebok.
O’Neal, a tall boy with strong muscle and technology, he has all the potentials to be a center. His potential decided that he can do what he wanted in the rivals inside court. As we all know, O’Neal was a “Superman” by heart. His favorite dunk was to separate from people, to pass the basketball into the basket from the human head, and then to make a pull up as the end, even if this movement may cause technical fouls or pull the basket broken). Thus the famous dunk movement became the flag character of O’Neal. O’Neal’s famous dunk Nike Roshe Run action became the symbol of the Reebok O’Neal second generation. According to unofficial records of the shoe fans, after O’Neal terminated his contract with Reebok, O’Neal bought the special personal Logo designed for him from Reebok and thus made its his own brand Logo. Then, we will take a look at O’Neal’s career basketball shoes.
It was undoubtedly that Reebok pay much attention to this big guy, they made the first O’Neal’s signature shoes by the using of high tech Pump and carbon plate and honeycomb cushioning technology. The full black version was only on sale in the United States, while for other places, only other two color were on sale. When he made the commercial advertisement for the other brands, people can still see this pair of shoes.
The most eye catching place for Shaq Attaq II is the first appearance of O’Neal’ Logo. It was so shining that it covered almost all the shoes tongue. What made people confused was the regressed technology, there was no Nike Free Run Pump and cellular cushioning technology, just retained the carbon plate technology in the shoes soles. Thanks to O’Neal’s excellent performances; he made his Dream Team II to continue their competition in the World Championships.
Although O’Neill’s popularity has been high, but the sale of his shoes is continuing to fall. After the contract with Allen Iverson, the common height basketball new star, Reebok’s shoes were in a hot topic, which was quite unbelievable. Since Reebok terminated the contract with this shoe center,O’Neal has not signed with other brands, while, he chose to set up his own DUNKMAN brand and his shoes are named Shaq series. O’Neal series shoes priced at about $ 35 price, which was the most approachable price in the All Star shoes. The only regret is that this shoes series has never been on sale in China.
