“We talking ’bout practice?!”

Allen Iverson, better known as “The Answer,” will forever be remembered for laying his body on the line and leaving everything on the hardwood each time he hit the court. Unfortunately, the media’s twist on stories and remarks have portrayed Iverson as a thug from time to time. A prime example of this was a post-game conference held back in 2002 after the passing of a close friend and a loss on the court as well.

This time around, Reebok has turned what many now know to be Iverson’s famouse ”Practice” rant into a special colorway for his Question silhouette. The model follows previous themed colorways such as its “Misunderstood” and “All-Star” editions with an inspiration from the cap Iverson wore during the press conference. In addition, you’ll find the exact words from the “Practice” rant on the insoles of each shoe for finishing touches.

The “Practice”-themed Reebok Question Mid is scheduled to release on May 13 online and at select Reebok Classics retailers.
