Victoria Beckham, the high-heel aficionado who once proclaimed, “I can’t concentrate in flats!,” surprised us all last fall by announcing a new partnership with Reebok. And now, we’ve finally got a first look at what the unexpected collaboration will look like.
Making a swift departure from her Posh days of sky-high stilettos only, the designer dropped the first of her collaboration with the athletic brand last night: a line of merch dedicated to Shaquille O’Neal. Yes, really.
Looking to the ’90s era of Reebok—which was ruled by the basketball legend himself—Beckham created a collection paying homage to the heritage of the brand. For the official unveiling of the pieces, she was joined by none other than Shaq himself. Making for the world’s unlikeliest pair, the duo posed together on a basketball court in matching looks from the Beckham-curated collection.

Both wearing sneakers, Victoria and Shaq showed off their hilarious height difference (the designer is 5’4, while the basketball player stands at 7’1) while posing side by side. To even out the difference, Beckham later got some help by standing on a wooden podium—and then by Shaq himself who helped her make a slam dunk.
Later in the evening, the pair showed off the new Reebok tees with an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden followed by a private dinner in Los Angeles with both the Beckham and O’Neal families.

The unisex line of Shaq merch, which is set to drop soon, is just the first of Beckham’s collaboration with Reebok. The designer’s full collection for the sportswear brand—which will likely include both apparel and footwear—is slated to drop sometime later this year.
