The Melody Ehsani x Reebok Question is added to the long list of Reebok Question releases celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the shoe.
Melody Ehsani inspired this release by the women in Allen Iverson’s life. More specifically, the designer latest collaboration supports Iverson’s daughters Tiaura, Messiah and Dream, and their mother Tawanna for a women’s release of the Reebok Question.
“Aside from being one of the greatest players, Iverson to me more so was a cultural leader and game changer, so I made sure to embody some of those elements into the shoe,” says designer Melody Eshani.
The Reebok Question Mid x Melody Ehsani utilizes three different types of color-matched leather to make up the upper, quarter and heel in order to create dimension on the tonal design. In addition, the tongue has a replica emboss of Allen’s “Hold My Own” tattoo. Working towards the back heel, there is a Velcro spot that allows you to switch out different leather patch designs of 3 of his other tattoos. The interior lining features an image of Allen’s cornrows, and the sock liner is a paisley print representing his iconic bandana. The upper has a black patent toe box, the sole remains ice blue as a nod to the original Question, and there are two lace options – one in tonal vegetable tan, and another in black and vegetable tan bungee inspired lace.
The Melody Ehsani x Reebok Question Mid is set to release on December 2nd at Melody Ehsani’s LA location MelodyEhsani.com, Reebok.com and Rise45. Retail price is set at $160.
