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 of all time. Originally released in 1996, the Question would become one of the best-selling Reebok sneakers ever created. The shoe featured a full-grain leather upper and a translucent outsole. But, perhaps the most unique design detail was the honeycomb-shaped Hexalite cushioning system alongside the midsole. On May 25, Reebok will have a one time re-issue of the original white/red Question Mid with pearlized toe, 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. Retail will be set at $125 USD with availability through select retailers, including Reebok.com.
