Updated December 15th, 2016: The BAPE x mita Sneakers x Reebok Question Mid releases on December 23rd, 2016 for $160.
Streetwear giant BAPE has given us plenty of enviable collaborations with Reebok in the past with the Reebok Instapump Fury serving as the usual canvas between the two brands, but now A Bathing Ape is taking the legendary style of Allen Iverson to task with an upcoming BAPE Reebok Question Mid releasing later this year.
The Reebok Question Mid has been on a tear lately, celebrating Allen Iverson’s induction into The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame which perfectly coincided with the model’s 20th Anniversary. We’ve seen references to AI’s dress code-inducing streetwear style in the Question Mid’s latest colorways, but here the infamous BAPE camouflage hits the iconic silhouette with shades of olive green, cargo khaki, and brown contrasting a clean white midsole and lining. The Bapesta star even makes its way onto the heel.
While the BAPE Reebok Question Mid is undoubtedly the highlight of the upcoming footwear collaboration, the latest BAPE Reebok Instapump Fury takes on a luxurious high-contrast form with accents of black and white interrupted by an electric green touch on an ambiguous camouflage pattern. Subtle midsole speckling and a unique silhouette construction will make this offering as head-turning as BAPE’s previous collaborations with the vector brand.
The Reebok Question Mid x BAPE x mita Sneakers collab will release on December 23rd for $210 at select Reebok Classic retailers around the globe including reebok.com.
