The Reebok campaign continues and it certainly got a lot stronger with the support of Allen Iverson, Reebok’s longest-tenured basketball athlete endorsee in history. As you know, Iverson has a life-time contract with Reebok, and clearly he’s aware of the Reebok Back movement as he made a cameo appearance in Swizz Beatz’ latest music video ‘Street Knock’ (available for viewing just below). Both ‘The Answer’ and Swizz rocked the Reebok Question, with Swizz wearing them around his neck while spitting his tunes while Iverson wore ‘em while displaying his legendary handles. Swizz also wore the Questions during a recent taping of BET’s 106 & Park. More on this sick Celebrity Feet sighting below, so take a look and let us know how excited you are about the Questions hitting stores once again!

A.I. is one of the best guards to me HANDS DOWN! im a PHILLY dude n he made a point every game he played with pride n skill....! MY MAN....
A.I won't get a free pass back to the NBA by playing good overseas he has to work for it and prove the NBA and fans he has years left to play at an elite level. Pretty sure if he overlooked his pride and joined the D-League the NBA would open their arms to him. He is up there with the older guards like Nash and Fisher etc. Also I'm sure his jeresy would sell like hotcakes any team he would end up. *hint*
This is a solid release for Reebok. Highly respected shoe right here. I can't wait to get the blue toe. They can keep the 10,000 dollar laces idea and drop that all Black pair with the ice blue bottom as well.
Man who the fuk even watches BET anymore? Lol, that shyt hasn't gotten any play in this ride since the mid '90s. Props to my man SwissBeatz tho.. I never liked his overly repetitious beats, but he is looking dapper as fuk in the still pics. Do your thing, bro.
I am sure we will see a full run of these; more colorways and lows to follow -- loved these in the days
What about the blue toe? Those are the real o.g.z not this one that you could of got off eastbay for 50%off a few years back. I remember when they came out in 95 or 96 that blue toe was the only colorway that was hard to get a hand on.
This was the illest sneaker when I was in high school...I had so many different color tips, then my foot grew...sooooo sad I had to get rid of em all...looking forward to this
Loved AI, hated his shoes, these weren't bad but the "REEBOK" in the eyelets ruined them for me. I'm glad to see that reebok is dropping this, hopefully it'll put some money in AI's pocket during his time of need. That song was terrible but that's the best flow I've heard out of ASAP Rocky, usually can't stand him.
WoW it actually feels good to see a non Jordan retro gettin love for once for under $150....cant wait to cop these again
It's showtime! -Swizz Beats I might have to break out my 06's (suede toe) now before the madness starts on this shiny red (toe) pair. Good for Iverson. He needed some love cus the NBA turned him away to play over seas. I read he won the championship in China (or something like that)
the realist to ever step foot on an NBA court...glad to see him back in a positive light! He is by far my favorite player ever... Can't wait for these!
Swizz Beats is corny as hell and his audience is miniature since he doesn't produce for DMX any more. Buddy dooped those white people at Reebok into thinking he was way more popular than he actually is in the "Urban" demographic. What kids are looking at Swizz and saying to themselves I gotta get those Reeboks? LOL! But those Questions are a def cop for any sneaker collector.
I think the Jordan 2012 would be dope if it was color blocked like this with color only on that front toe
THESE SHOES WILL BE COPPED! i remember having the black and white pair back in the day. so much memories behind it..
Love the Questions. But it's pretty bad when you look to Terrence J as being the best dressed for any episode
i had them joints when i was 8 years old playing on my county basketball team. i'd love to have em again
U know Jordan tried the same thing but scrapped the idea with JORDAN on the eyelets on the 11 concords in them DMP pack? ...just a lil info I had to share Don't believe me? look it up!
okay so he doesnt have a presence in the urban demographic but yet he single handedly rose their sales up 30% in one year...your favorite rapper couldnt even do that..not to mention he works with aston martin, lotus and either hublot or audemars..your favorite rapper not doing that..respect that mans hustles
Swizz is far from corny, he's still relevant and still has many fans. Swizz does all the behind the scenes work, which propels the artist you consider "Not Corny" careers. The stuff I said isn't even a qtr of what going on in his world. He's doing big things not only for the "urban" culture, but for the world. Reebok came to him to turn the company around, 30% increase last year, and 60% likely this year. Think before you speak...
Uhhhh Swizz Beats produced for ALOT more ppl than just DMX, pure hating going on in your comment. Clown
TBH..the highest i can see Reebok goin on these is $125...I mean, I had like 10 pairs of these bad boys when I was in school
picked up a pair from FL bout 1-2 yrs ago for $55.....its gonna b funny to c how they jack up the price on these since they've been in a video...good song I might add
