Adidas and Reebok have come together for the launch of the Question Mid Iverson x Harden “OG Meets OG”, a distinct crossover between Allen Iverson and James Harden’s first signature sneakers.
The silhouette introduces the Harden Vol. 1 “Pioneer” colorway to the historic Question Mid canvas, paying homage to two of basketball’s most influential on-and-off-court icons of all time and their mutual admiration and respect for one another.
“I was excited to work with AI because you don’t often get the opportunity to sit down and spend time with a legend, off the court,” said Harden. “Going back to watching him on the court, knowing his competitive nature, everything he went through, and how he did it his way, that’s another reason why I was excited because I’m on that same path right now. The collaboration makes sense because it gives a lot of people the opportunity to see what AI did in his era, and how he was unapologetic and did stuff his way. And then me doing my version of that right now, it’s kind of the passing of the torch.”
“People on the outside, looking in, really don’t understand it like we do,” explained Iverson. “You have all these things going on for you in life, you’re able to do a lot of things for your family, and you’re living a good life. You’re popular, a lot of people want to meet you, a lot of people want to be around you, basically the world is yours. But the only thing you want in return is to win, that’s it. You literally do anything that you possibly can out there to win.”
The Question Mid Iverson x Harden “OG Meets OG” ($150) releases Aug. 7th at Reebok.com and the Foot Locker family of brands including Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Footaction, Champs Sports, and Eastbay.com.
