Today, stylist Matthew Henson and Reebok are teaming up to launch Crossover U, a workshop series taking place later this month inspired by Allen Iverson and celebrating his one-of-a-kind legacy.
The workshop is centered around the launch of a new colorway of the Reebok Question dubbed "Double Cross." For the first time, Iverson's iconic debut signature sneaker is delivered with mismatched red and blue accents—cues taken from two original colorways, laid out over white tumbled leather as a nod to his rookie season in Philadelphia. Unique details include '96' and '97' printed on the sockliners in reference to his Rookie of the Year run and the shoe's heritage. Elements such as tongue Vector branding, heel Question logos and icy outsoles remain in place.
Crossover U will also feature a series of creative workshops on Oct. 25 in New York City, each tailored by partners to suit their personal style and craft in celebration of Iverson's legacy.
Among those leading workshops will be Henson, a longtime admirer of Iverson and his disruptive style. His session will explore pre-NBA dress code sportswear within a contemporary fashion context. Artist and Designer Gianni Lee (Creative Upcycling), Jeweler Martine Ali (Custom Jewelry Design), Photographer Quil Lemons (Lifestyle Photography on Film) and Hair Stylist Guingui (Advanced Braiding) will also lead sessions. Timed to the release of the "Double Cross" Question and start of the NBA season, the workshops will take place on Oct. 25, with sign-ups open from Oct. 10 through Oct. 22 via reebok.com/us/crossover_u.
Priced at $150, the "Double Cross" Question will release exclusively at UBIQ, Undefeated, Foot Locker 34th Street & Washington Heights and Champs Sports Times Square on Oct. 11, followed by a global launch at reebok.com and Foot Locker family brands on Oct. 23.
