Allen Iverson may have ruffled the feathers of the Philly faithful when his Dallas Cowboys-centric Question Mid released earlier this year, but now the Answer and Reebok are making amends to the City of Brotherly Love with a Philadelphia Eagles-inspired Question Mid “Court Green.” Paying homage to Iverson’s love for football and the Birds’ classic kelly green, white and silver uniforms that the team wore from 1985-1995, this mid-cut Question is fabulous fan service for Philly sports fanatics.
Uppers use an interesting white jersey-style mesh, held in place by a white leather mudguard. “Court Green” then appears on the patent leather toebox and heel piece, graces Vector logos on the tongue and midfoot, is deployed across the eyestays from collar to vamp and even provides piping on the white laces.
Details don’t stop there, however. Midsoles take on a light gray hue to complete the uniform-centric color trifecta, and surround a duo of green DMX cushioning units on lateral and medial sides alike. Iverson’s #3 badge is stamped onto the heel, and if you peer into the collar you’ll see a gray terry cloth liner and a gridiron-printed insole. Glossy silver outsoles complete the look.
Eagles fans haven’t had much to cheer about this year — the team is struggling through a disappointing 3-5 start to the season, and former NFL MVP candidate Carson Wentz has tossed 12 interceptions, been sacked 35 times and fumbled nine times, leading the league in all three negative categories while most of the team’s other key pieces like Fletcher Cox and Zach Ertz have not played up to expectations — but they’ll receive a brief respite from the malaise when the Question Mid “Court Green” drops on the Reebok webstore for $140 USD come December 3.
