Reebok has brought Allen Iverson and James Harden together for a new take on the former’s Question Mid dubbed “OG meets OG.” Following up a Question-inspired take on the Harden Vol. 4 that released in April, this new Question pulls its colorway inspiration from Harden’s debut adidas silhouette: the Harden Vol. 1.

Drawing upon the mutual respect shared by the two ball-dominant guards, the cross-brand collaboration is a nod to two divergent eras of signature hoop shoes, much like the Reebok x adidas Instapump Fury BOOST bridged the gap between two generations of influential running silhouettes. Iverson’s Question debuted in 1996 when he was a brash rookie guard with the Philadelphia 76ers, and is most known for its suede toe cap and bold DMX cushioning pods. It’s undeniably one of the most classic basketball silhouettes produced in the latter half of the ’90s, but here it takes on a Houston Rockets-esque color scheme from Harden’s aforementioned Vol. 1 — a shoe that released 20 years later in 2016.

Dressed in full-grain black leather, the upper is contrasted by a chalk-colored nubuck toebox. Bright pops of red are present on the collar and tongue trim, the flecked rope laces, the tongue’s Vector logo and the top three lateral eyestays. The most notable red details, however are all on the medial side: quarter Vector logos are surrounded by the bright shade and the medial eyestays spell out “Harden” instead of their standard “Reebok” graphic. More chalky white appears on the midsole, surrounding a white and black DMX cushioning setup. Heels lock in the cross-brand look by featuring a Reebok Question logo up top and Harden’s adidas Basketball logo on the midsole. Simple white outsoles round off the look.

The Reebok Question Mid “OG Meets OG” will release on the Reebok webstore August 7, and is priced at $150 USD.

Elsewhere in the world of basketball footwear, Kobe Bryant‘s Nike Mamba Fury has appeared in a Lakers-esque colorway.
