A Brief Look at SNS x Reebok Question Mid Collaborations

Sneakersnstuff has a long-lasting history with Reebok, working on some of the most sought-after silhouettes of the brand in its history. After their first link-up in 2008 on the Reebok SNS 5000 reworking the classic Reebok ERS 5000, but that story is for another day, today we are focusing on the Reebok Question Mid. Allen Iverson’s first signature basketball sneaker was released in 1996 and named “The Question” since there were a lot of questions about AI being able to deliver all the expectations on him.


Sneakersnstuff x Reebok Question Mid ”The Crocus”

The first Reebok Question Mid x Sneakersnstuff, named after the big Question – Allen Iverson, is inspired by spring-flower blossoming in Sweden. The yellow and purple crocus is one of the first flowers to bloom after four months of dark winter, which inspired the colorway and suede construction. Perfect for spring weather, the Sneakersnstuff x Reebok Question Mid ”The Crocus” was released on March 20th, 2013, and is still today one of the most beloved (Lakers-favorite) Reebok sneakers.

Sneakersnstuff x Reebok Question Mid ”A Shoe About Nothing”

The second Sneakersnstuff x Reebok Question Mid,”A shoe about nothing,” was released on May 29th, 2013. Inspired by, well, nothing. Usually, a design has a reference, but for that collaboration, SNS left the drawing board blank, where the only important factor was a beautiful color combination, and that’s it. The idea was to add maybe a story afterward, but that didn’t add up either, so they just left it like it was, a great sneaker by Sneakersnstuff and Reebok.
