This classic colorway of Iverson’s signature shoe is set to return in a couple of days, commemorating one of the great moments of his rookie season- his famous crossover move against Michael Jordan.

The shoe features a White leather base complemented with a True Pearlized Blue on the toe and upper heel. Other details include signature #3 heel plug in OG stitching as well as a special edition sockliner. For many sneakerheads, the original release of the Question Mid was a game-changer.

Personal Observations:

It is an overall durable shoe with decent stability and torsional support based on the data collected. But ventilations and weight are very important when it comes to performance purposes. No one wants their feet steaming, especially on hot Summer days, and the shoe ranks pretty low on these two components.  cushioning, tracking and lockdown are pretty average on it. Because of is heaviness , it definitely won’t be suitable for guards. It’s a good shoe for collectors who are avid lovers of Allen Iverson.
