Reebok has officially confirmed the upcoming release of the Question Mid “Gridiron”, inspired by Allen Iverson’s well-documented love for the game of football.
At a young age, A.I. had no desire to play any sport other than football. He even calls it his first love to this day, despite being such a legend in basketball. “I thought basketball was soft,” A.I. remembers. However, this changed after his mom dragged him “screaming and kicking out the door” to basketball practice. When he got there, he saw his football teammates trying out and decided to give it a try. “I’ve loved basketball since then,” said A.I. He threw touchdowns in the fall and dunked in the winter. By the age of 13, he was playing basketball with guys twice his age. As a high school athlete, A.I. would set out on a quest to win state titles in both sports, which he did. He was in the national news and recruiters from colleges across the country were in the stands – the rest is history.
Recalling this history is the “Gridiron” edition of his first signature basketball shoe, first introduced in ‘96. The iconic Question Mid features football-inspired hues and gridiron graphics.
