Last year, LeBron James stated in an interview that Allen Iverson is "pound for pound" the greatest basketball player in NBA history. This year, March 1 marks the official retirement ceremony for Iverson. And to celebrate, Reebok Classics will be releasing an exclusive edition of the Question Mid to commemorate his storied career.
The sneaker combines suede and leather that are paired with the Philadelphia 76ers' team colors. A white midsole and gold accents provide the finishing touches. Only 1,996—Iverson's draft year—pairs of the shoe will be available starting March 14. As for where the sneakers will be sold, the official retailers will be announced during Iverson's retirement ceremony.
On the sneaker, Iverson had this to say:
"Words cannot express what it means to have the 76ers organization retire my jersey. And to have Reebok make the Banner Question that's symbolic of this event makes it even more special. The Sixers and Reebok are two partners that have always had my back and for that I'm forever grateful."
