This Reebok Question Mid Pays Homage to A Classic Philadelphia 76ers Alternate Jersey

An ode to the “We talkin’ about practice?” days.

When writing out a list of the greatest point guards to ever step foot on the hardwood, it goes without question (pun intended) that Allen Iverson‘s name deserves to be jotted down. And this month, Reebok is paying their respects to the Hall of Fame athlete with a special colorway of his Reebok Question Mid that comes stylized in a palette emblematic of the Philadelphia 76ers’ old-school alternate gold threads.

When diving into its visual composition, one will notice that its upper translates elements of the NBA franchise’s throwback uniforms through a textile upper that is primarily presented with a stark black satin finish. Accompanying this, accents of “Flash Red” and gold suede show face, the former of which outline the vector logos located atop the lateral/medial walls, tongues and interior liners, while the latter — which likely represents the jersey’s golden basketball insignias — lands on the toe tip and heel overlays. Together, Iverson’s #3 along with an actual basketball graphic are stamped along the footbeds as well as on the lower heel. Down below, the bright white midsole unit is contrasted with hexagon-filled pods dialed with stealthy shapes and red backgrounds, and comes mated with an outsole dialed to a gum hue.

For all you die hard “The Answer” fanatics out there, be sure to mark your calendars for November 20th, as these will be dropping via Reebok.com for an MSRP of $140.
