team usa olympic basketball sneaker showcase Team USA Olympic Sneaker Showcase

The Olympic Games have served as a serviceable spotlight for athletic companies to show off their best products in each sport, and sometimes it can get quite ugly. Looking back to the ’92 Games when Nike and Reebok had their lengthy battle, it’s clear that companies were fighting for that medal podium spotlight. Here in 2012, Nike’s got the Olympics on lock, but that wasn’t the case before; along with Nike and Jordan, brands like adidas, Reebok, Converse (prior to the merger), and even Ewing  joined the Olympic-inspired sneaker festivities, and a sneaker event out in Hong Kong called Kickoff Summer Fun showcased some of the best in history (bet you’ll be surprised at some of what’s found below). Enjoy this throwback gallery of red, white, and blue sneakers and let us know which is your personal favorite! Photos: kenlu

Imagine if Nike Sportswear hadn’t issued hardly any of its 1990s classics, then suddenly, BAM! — a torrent of Jordans, Air Maxes and signatures that’d leave longsuffering sneakerheads in tears.  That’s kind of like what’s going on right now under Swizz Beatz‘ supervision at Reebok, as the Vector brand is finally bringing back some of its most memorable silos of the past two decades.  It started last year with the Shawn Kemp-inspired Kamikaze III, a descendent of the Reebok Kamikaze II that’s now getting a proper retro treatment along with a couple of Allen Iverson’s signatures.  AI’s ‘Pearlized Red’ Question is on display with the OG blue colorup soon to follow, which will be joined by the Answer IV in one of that model’s many (many) first run styles.  And on the running/training side of things, we’re about to be blessed with Emmitt Smith’s EM22 and the original DMX Run (suggesting a future release for it’s DMX-debuting counterpart, the Answer I?).  Have a peek at Reebok’s upcoming Retro Sport collection after the jump, let us know which of these classics you’re most excited to own and if there’s another RBK model you’d like to see return (Swizz promises “Shaqs also” soon), and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for release info.

Celebrity Feet: Allen Iverson – Reebok Question – White/Red

May 24th, 2012 by | 35 comments

celebrity feet allen iverson reebok question white red 1 Celebrity Feet: Allen Iverson   Reebok Question   White/Red

During an extended inset chat with Lisa Salters that to everyone outside of the Boston area was likely the most emotionally engaging aspect of what has been to this point the less interesting Eastern Conference semifinal, 76ers legend Allen Iverson struggled to convey the importance of his connection to Philadelphia’s fans. AI avoided directly contradicting Kevin Garnett’s ‘fairweather’ comment and stuck to the facts, confessing that he nearly teared up while walking wobbly legged off the court after presenting the game ball in Wednesday night’s Sixers win. It’s difficult to put into words just how much of a difference the distance north on I-95 made in his life, but there is indeed an iconic sneaker synonymous with Iverson‘s memorable first season.

A good portion of rookie AI’s first campaign was played in this red-toed colorway of the Reebok Question, a sneaker that’s been around the block and back again, issued in a variety of retro and team-oriented renditions in the sixteen years since its debut. We got a similar drop back in 2009, but pearly toed pairs Iverson and Swizz Beatz have recently been spotted rocking are truer OGs than those suede-tipped joints. The timing of the May 25th release of one of the greatest non-Nike/Jordan basketball signatures now seems utterly magical with AI’s presence boosting the 76ers to a seventh and deciding game in Beantown the following day; let us know your plans to cop along with your take on which is more likely: a Philly win or an Iverson NBA comeback?  Photos: Yahoo!

Reebok certainly is bringing out the big guns this year, with the much anticipated return of the OG white/red Reebok Question colorway getting a little boost from an apparent revival of the Shaq line as well.

The good news keeps coming as we now learn that the 2012 Question re-release will be extending out to the junior and female sneaker enthusiasts as well, with kids sizes available for those who want to do the history on this classic b-ball design from the Vector Brand. Hit the jump for more photos and be on the lookout for the launch of the Question next Friday, May 25th at select Reebok retailers like Packer Shoes, who already has a countdown ticking down on their site.

Reebok Question – White – Pearlized Red | Detailed Images

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.

The Reebok Question and Allen Iverson chat has been heating up on Sneaker News, and with the confirmation of a release for later this month, the excitement over one of the most iconic basketball shoes of the 90′s (and perhaps all time) is boiling up to one of Reebok’s best releases of the year. Looking back at Allen Iverson’s most memorable moments in the Reebok Question (like when he crossed up Michael Jordan in the White/Navy colorway) certainly brings forth that ‘must-have’ aura about the sneaker, so the OG pearlized-toe version which is scheduled to drop this May 25th, we get to re-live one of the most energetic eras of the NBA and sneaker history. The Reebok Question White/Red will be a one-time release at select retailers including, Jimmy Jazz, Villa, Shoe Palace, City Gear, The Vault, and Shiekh’s, so check out these new shots of the Questions as well as some throwback stills of A.I. burning up the league below!
