Reebok’s line of Iverson sneakers – The Question series and The Answer series – is the second-longest running sneaker line in history. While 1997’s The Answer I might be one of the most dated-looking sneakers of all-time*, the O.G. Question still holds up. And for its 20th anniversary, Reebok is putting out 20 different versions of the original shoe.
The first one, seen above, is “The Prototype” and it’s literally the original prototype Reebok made to entice Iverson to sign with them before he was drafted. Not all features stuck around for The Question, but “Reebok maintained certain key features of “The Prototype,” such as the original Haxalite Technology, and added a question mark brand on the heels and a red and black scrawl design on the toecap.”
The Prototype comes out on Friday with a price point of $200, which is steep, but worth the cost of having some cool teens give you a “WHAT’RE THOOOOSE” when you’re out in public.
*Unpopular opinion: Most of Iverson’s Reebok shoes were ugly as shit.
