The Reebok Question Mid is Back in “Blue Toe” FormPublished:

Allen Iverson is often cited as the most stylish player to ever lace ‘em up in the NBA. But as trendsetting as he was on the court with his signature cornrows, headbands, shooting sleeves, and tattoos, his personal brand of style was perhaps even more influential off it. This dichotomy is personified in his signature line with Reebok, which has been going strong for more than 25 years.
His first model, the Question, hit the scene in 1996 to immediate fanfare. It perfectly encapsulated the essence of the then-rookie’s burgeoning game – flashy on the exterior, but with all the technical prowess to perform at the highest level.
It launched in two initial colorways, a “Red Toe” version and a “Blue Toe” variant. The latter colorway was on the feet of A.I. when he famously crossed Michael Jordan, and it’s set to rerelease in the near future.
This take on the Reebok Question Mid “Blue Toe” stays true to the OG with tumbled leather uppers done in white, which come accented with pearlized blue-leather hits at the toeboxes and heel panels. From there, Reebok’s Vector logo is stitched into the side panels and open-celled mesh tongues.
One of the fan-favorite features of the model is the ghille lacing system with TPU lace loops. The lateral side of the loops spell “Reebok,” while the medial sides come covered in small Vector logos.
Down below, chunky foam midsoles house Reebok’s proprietary Hexalite cushioning in the forefoot and heels. This honeycomb-patterned technology is done in blue to play off the upper. Icy, semitranslucent rubber outsoles cap the entire colorway off.
