Company Description

An iconic, 1 of 1 offering at the intersection of basketball culture and business. In 2002, Kobe Bryant opted out of his Adidas shoe deal, sparking the biggest “sneaker free agency” in NBA history. Few players had earned Bryant’s respect and admiration more than Allen Iverson, who had an endorsement deal with Reebok. As a result, this pair of Lakers themed, player edition Reebok Allen Iverson Questions sneakers were created to lure Bryant to Reebok. Kobe wearing the signature sneakers of a fellow NBA player was the true testament to his respect for Iverson. Game worn and signed by Kobe Bryant, these Yellow Toe Reebok Questions were hidden for years before recently resurfacing during an episode of Pawn Stars.** **Considered one of the rarest pairs of a modern era star to ever surface. Kobe memorabilia is on fire, with a rookie game worn jersey recently selling for $3.69M.
