Rounding out tomorrow’s major releases is the return of the White/Pearlized Red colorway of Allen Iverson’s Reebok Question Mid. Set to hit select retailers, checkout a breakdown of the return of this classic.
The shoe that became as iconic as the Rookie of the Year who wore it, Reebok’s Question Mid was aptly named for a player who many questioned ahead of the 1996 draft. Yet, defying all who questioned his size and skill, 21 year-old Allen Iverson became the No. 1 pick of the Philadelphia 76ers in one of the deepest drafts.
Originally released in 1996, the Question would become one of the best-selling Reebok sneakers ever created and a staple of nearlyevery “Top Sneaker” list. The shoe featured a full-grain leather upper and a pearlized outsole. But, perhaps the most unique designdetail was the honey-comb shaped Hexalite cushioning system alongside the shoe marking the first time Reebok’s technology would be blown out to the midsole. Considered the most popular model in Iverson’s signature Reebok line, the Question is a classic “must have” for sneaker collectors and basketball fans alike.
On May 25th, Reebok will have a 1 TIME DROP of the original white/red Question Mid with pearlized toe. This is a limited time release, after which the iconic shoe goes back into the Reebok Vault. While the nubuck toe version has been re-released in the past, this is the FIRST time Reebok has re-released the Question with the pearlized toe since its original launch in 1996.
