Not that switching up laces was anything new in 1993 - MJ famously laced up his Air Jordans in all kinds of unorthodox ways (eventually inspiring a luxe version of the Air Jordan V) - but Shaq seemed to favor black laces in his white Shaq Attaqs. Maybe he thought they made his feet look smaller. In this early shoot with the Magic, it looked like he hadn't yet made up his mind.
