Reebok is set to release a new iteration of the Reebok Question Mid, reminiscent of Kobe Bryant’s memorable sneaker free agency period in the 2002-03 NBA season. During this time, Bryant’s association with various footwear brands, including Reebok, left a lasting impression on sneaker culture, mainly through his series of exclusive player-edition (PE) sneakers.
The upcoming “White/Grape Punch” colorway, while not a direct replica of Bryant's PEs, certainly evokes the spirit of that era. Dominated by “Footwear White,” the sneaker's tumbled leather upper is pristine and versatile, lending a classic and clean look. This neutral base is then accented with vibrant pops of color, adding a dynamic twist to the design.
Lemon-yellow highlights gracefully outline the profile logo and tongue tab, offering a subtle yet striking contrast. The sneaker's sole unit showcases a similar color-blocking approach, predominantly clad in white but interrupted by a splash of purple within the Hexalite midsole and tread. The “Grape Punch” hue makes a more pronounced statement, adorning the lace loops, heel tab, and the nubuck toe cap.
The detailed imagery below offers a closer look at this exciting release, capturing the essence of an era when Kobe Bryant’s footwear choices were as eagerly anticipated as his performances on the court.
The Reebok Question Mid “Grape Toe” is slated for release on Reebok.com on December 1st at a retail price of $170.
