Basketball was exciting in Philly during the late 90’s. The Sixers had just drafted one of the most anti-prototypical players in history in Allen Iverson – a 6’0′ point guard with the mentality of a gun-slinging shooting guard and the fearlessness of a Power Forward. Before he created the new fashion trend with his cornrows and casual courtside wear, Allen Iverson sparked things in his rookie year by winning the best honor for a first-year player and putting the moves on Michael Jordan, and eventually ‘The Answer’ went on to appear in multiple All-Star games, win four NBA Scoring Titles, earn an MVP award, and advance to the NBA Finals. Allen Iverson was the new era of NBA Player, and again, we can’t help but think back to where it started – the Reebok Question. The Pearlized Toe version, a Philly-exclusive release back in the day – will return later this month in a much-awaited return. Find these on May 25th at select Reebok accounts nationwide like Mr R Sports. Photos: ITSB
if the retail price is more then $100 they can keep the shoe i jus copped the yellow/navy blue ones frm pys for $100 i love the shoe but there is no reason for the price increase because these sat on the shelfs a couple years ago
Looking forward to getting these on the 25th. Secured a pair while picking up the Cavs AJ 4's yesterday.
really want the iversons that tied together that would iverson across the shoe to retro the black and gold pair anyone?
good luck sneaker news trying to get people off the JB wagon. Hyping these won't work unless they have a Jordan logo lol
YO SNEAKER NEWS, WE KNOW THESE SHOES ARE COMING OUT. STOP HYPING THIS SHIT UP, YOU ONLY CONTRIBUTE TO THE MAYHEM WE EXPERIENCE WHEN TRYING TO COP A PAIR FOR RETAIL PRICE.
Classic sneaker. I want to cop, but not for retail. I understand Reebok is trying to hype these as limited, but the past Question Retros sat and were able to be had at much less than retail including the last Team Question Retro from 2010/11, whenever they released. Can anyone tell me the differences between these and the Team Question Retro besides the pearl toe?
You must be like 15 years old shorty… like a wet behind the ears puppy. I ain't mad @ you thou. Just step up your shoe knowledge up before you post. Better to stay quiet and have have people wonder if your ignorant, than to speak and remove all doubt.
if you spend 160+ on some poor quality, everybody and their momma wants them to resell, altered from the original version air jordans then why not just pay the low full retail for these? imo these are one of the freshest kicks to ever come out, they even out beat some of the air jordans people sweat over so much. to each its own but I will cop
Not much, except the pearl-toe was a Philly-exclusive when it first released. The materials look good but take a closer look at the Hexalite. Disappointing.
The only retro's I buy are ones that I had as a kid when they retro-ed then. I don't find these shoes appealing because I have no personal connection to them and I have never seen these before a couple weeks ago because I was 3 when they originally released.
1.Ppl like u dnt know nothing about basketball for. 2. Ur prolly just a JB fake sneaker fan. Respects to Jordan and what he did. But A.I. was a beast on the court the biggest little man to ever do it. And these shoes dope. Jordan "defined" the game but AI redifined it forever and these jawns is heat and have history. Only real sneaketheads and basketball fans now that tho.....
Thats the truth hostly I agree some of these "sneakerheads" are not even the sneakerheads say they're. They just love anything coming out a nike/jordan factory
