Reebok has officially confirmed the rerelease of its “Why Not Us?” Question Mid. A bring back of the “Black Toe” model issued by the brand in 2006, the sneaker was most notably worn five years earlier by Allen Iverson during the historic 2001 East v West exhibition in which he earned MVP accolades after leading his team to an improbable comeback victory.
“Everybody was saying we couldn’t win because of our size,” recalled Iverson during the post-game press conference. “It’s about the size of your heart. Coming into the fourth quarter, we were all sitting on the sideline saying: ‘Why Not Us?”.
During the game, Iverson sported an unreleased, unnamed “Black Toe” pair of his signature Question Mid. Five years later, in 2006, Reebok would bring the silhouette to market under the moniker: “Why Not Us?”.
This “Why Not Us?” edition of the Reebok Question Mid returns with its original high-contrast Black toe box, the “Reebok” wordmark and Vector logos running up the ghillie lacing system and embroidered “3” and “Question” logos at the heel, all brought together by a classic all-White leather upper seated atop its translucent Black outsole.
