When you think of the most ground-breaking sneaker endorsement contracts, names like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Derrick Rose come up. Let’s not forget Allen Iverson, the man who was the only reason why Reebok Basketball was on the map in the late 90′s-early 2000′s and owns one of the longest-running signature sneaker lines in history; after signing a lucrative endorsement contract upon his entrance into the NBA, Iverson made quite the extension to the terms of his deal in late 2001, which, in a nutshell, made him a Reebok athlete for life.
Though Iverson’s services may no longer be needed in the NBA at the moment, China has opened its arms to the former MVP and almost immediately, A.I. caught the attention of the U.S.-based sneaker newswire as he wore the Reebok Question during one of his games. During a recent outing that featured former NBA stars Dennis Rodman, Clyde Drexler, and Stephon Marbury, Iverson unearthed another gem from the Reebok stash – the Reebok Question 3; this particular pair appears to be a PE of some sort – perhaps a product of Reeboks’ YourReebok online customization module, but what does this mean on a larger scale? With Reebok makings its presence in the Lifestyle sector with the help of hip-hop stars, will we see a re-issue of the Reebok Question and Reebok Answer line? Check out Iverson and the Question 3 after the jump and let us know what you feel about a potential return. Photos: hupu
