Reebok and adidas first brought Allen Iverson and James Harden together on the Question Mid with July’s “OG Meets OG” colorway, and now the dynamic duos of brands and guards are cookin’ up once again with a “Crossed Up, Step Back” makeup. Inspired by the two’s deadly signature moves — Iverson’s crossover, a dribble so lethal even Michael Jordan couldn’t stop it and Harden’s borderline unguardable stepback — the “Crossed Up, Step Back” also boasts a color scheme that pulls from retro basketball uniforms.

Uppers are coated in a bright metallic silver, interspersed with blue pebbled leather on the toebox, quarter and heel. The latter duo holds much of the shoe’s branding, thanks to tri-color Vector logos and Question hits. A more simple Vector is placed on the tongue in asymmetrical fashion, while collars take on navy and light blue piping.

Eyestays spell out “Reebok” on the lateral side and “Harden” on the medial side for a clever touch of alternate flair, all while holding the flecked red laces in place. Down below, visible DMX cushioning is present on the sides of the midsole. Harden’s adidas Basketball logo graces the heel, and outsoles serve up a two-tone blue and red split to round off the look.

The Reebok Question Mid “Crossed Up, Step Back” will release via the Reebok webstore and retailers like Foot Locker come October 3. The MSRP is set at $150 USD.
