It Looks Like Reebok Is Going To Give Allen Iverson A New Signature Sneaker Even Though He’s Officially Retired
Allen Iverson‘s NBA career is over. Actually, it’s been over, as AI hasn’t played in the league in a few years now. But he made his retirement official last year, and then his former team, the Philadelphia 76ers, made it doubly official earlier this month when they retired his jersey number 3 and hung his jersey up in the rafters. So at this time, there are absolutely no plans for AI to return to the court and play basketball. However, you wouldn’t knowing that judging by what Reebok is planning on doing soon. Because believe it or not, they’re reportedly going to release a brand-new Reebok Question signature sneaker for AI, despite the fact that he’ll never get to wear the sneaker on the court.
The sneaker, which you can see in the photo above, is the Reebok Question 14. Reebok hasn’t made any official announcement about it yet. But it appears as though the sneaker will feature a black leather upper with ventilated side panels, a speckled midsole, and AI’s trademark Question branding on the tongue. This sneaker doesn’t come as a total shock, because AI’s sneakers have always been really big sellers for Reebok. But it is a little bit strange to see Reebok giving a signature sneaker to a guy who isn’t even in the NBA anymore. We do like what Reebok has done with this sneaker, though, and it looks like something that AI would definitely rock if he was still playing.
As of right now, we don’t have any other images of the sneaker. But if these do drop, you can probably expect to see them hit stores sometime in the fall. If Reebok is smart, they’ll make them available in a bunch of other colorways, too, because the simplistic design of the Question 14 would make it easy for Reebok to offer these in different colors.
What do you think about what Reebok has done here? Do you like that they’ve created the Question 14, or do you think it’s silly for them to create a sneaker for someone who will never actually get to wear it?
