When going down the list of all-time basketball greats Julius Erving is certainly a player that you cannot forget as he displayed an immense amount of athleticism and impressed the world with his high-flying scoop layups. And this year, Reebok is paying its respects to the human highlight reel by fashioning a special Reebok Question Mid “Dr. J” colorway.
The color palette is an overt nod to his former Philadelphia 76ers team — and this works out perfectly given that this is the signature shoe of a fellow Sixers legend in Allen Iverson. Most of the base layer comes assembled with angelic leathers, clean white mesh and synthetic tongues, and it’s accompanied by bold red accents that touch the vector branding, tongue trim and heightened heel panels. Golden hits are also present atop the Reebok branding that adorns the lace loops as well as the tongue logos. Inside the shoes, you’ll find an illustrated caricature of AI that represents his iconic SLAM cover from 1999, and the lower heels have been graced with a “6” to nod to Erving’s jersey number.
An official launch date has yet to be announced by the Reebok team, but it’s likely that they will arrive sometime this Spring for the usual $150 USD.
