O Say Can You See This Team USA-Inspired Reebok Question Mid?Release: 31 July 2021
Between a growing handful of novelty and collaborative colourways, Reebok have drawn on the historical status of the Question Mid to bring out some more OG flavours. Up next is this Team USA–inspired red, white and blue edition that nods to Allen Iverson’s 2004 Olympic campaign, where he secured a bronze medal.
While AI didn’t wear the Question at the Games (having released eight years prior), the retro silhouette has since become more of a commemorative model to highlight pivotal career moments. But maybe if he had worn them at Athens, things would have turned out differently…
These Question Mids translate the national colours pretty fluently, with primarily navy uppers contrasted by a white toe – a signature touch. Some red trim ties in the USA theme, and it also appears in the Hexalite midsole windows, which display a unique gradient finish. This sits atop an ice sole that appears to be a darker shade of blue than usual.
Sneaker and basketball nerds will also appreciate the heel circle displaying the number four, which was AI’s Team USA jersey number, as opposed to the usual number three that he wore in the NBA. This was because international basketball rules required coaches to wear numbers one to three.
The Reebok Question Mid ‘Iverson Four’ will release on July 31 directly from Reebok and retailers including Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line.
