Reebok pays tribute to the memory of the Mamba with this re-issue of one of the most famous player exclusives of all time, the Question Mid "Yellow Toe". In 2002, Kobe Bryant ended his sneaker deal with adidas and became a sneaker free agent for the next season. Naturally every brand created PE's for Bryant as an enticement to sign with them, and while he eventually signed with Nike, the version of Allen Iverson's debut model that Reebok created for him has left a lasting impression.
Originally set to drop during last February's All Star game in Chicago, the launch was shelved after Bryant's tragic death just weeks before the game,
and now are set to serve as a fitting farewell to the hellish year that was 2020. The shoe hues close to its original makeup, with a premium white leather upper that features a yellow leather toe cap and heel tab, yellow eyelets that spell out REEBOK, purple and gold embroidered branding, a white midsole with yellow Hexalite cushioning and a yellow rubber outsole.
The Reebok Question Mid "Yellow Toe" will release in men's and grade school sizes on Thursday, December 21st at 10:00am, only via in-store raffle.
