Why you should grab the new version of Allen Iverson’s Question Mid sneaker

Iverson’s ex-wife and daughter are modeling his new Question Mids, which were designed by Melody Ehsani.


A new version of the Reebok Question Mid, Allen Iverson’s classic sneaker, drops at midnight. But this time, designer Melody Ehsani is on deck.

Ehsani has been an it-girl in urban fashion, with her accessories incorporating references from America’s streets with Egypt’s pyramids. She’s regularly worn by celebs (see her work in Fergie’s “MILF Money”). Her sneakers, which she produces along with active wear in a partnership with Reebok, are often pattern-forward and lizard-print-inspired. She’s a peer of director and tastemaker Vashtie, who’s made waves for her feminine designs for Nike. According to the Source, she’s the first female Reebok designer to create a pump sneaker.

Her spin on the Question Mid is somewhat reserved, in a good way. It’s the shape we know, but champagne all over. The Iverson women modeled it. Wearing the shoes in new Reebok promo images are Iverson’s ex-wife Tawanna and daughters Dream, Tiaura and Messiah.


It’s hard to keep up with all the versions of the Question Mid, and there are likely endless iterations to come— Iverson has a lifetime contract with Reebok. And as you await more from Iverson, notice how Reebok is producing more high profile sneakers with women in mind (and behind the scenes). For instance, R&B singer Teyana Taylor’s version sold out fast in October. Hers are Ruby Woo red with purple bottoms. The Internets will guide you to them if you want to pay $200+.



And back in ’14, Reebok released a his-and-hers Easter set. The Question Mid looked like this:


Ehsani’s Iverson sneaker will be available for $160 at midnight here. We’re betting that this one will sell out too.
