new Nice Kicks x Reebok Question Mid Bubba Chuck
After working with big names like the Jordan Brand, this time designer Frank Cooker teamed up with other giants in the sneakers market: Nice Kicks and Reebok Classics.
The idea for this pair started when Nice Kicks designer Scott Hewett and basketball star Allen Iverson, decided to go fishing together. The activity built a bond between the two that helped create one of the most iconic signature shoes in Reebok history. In the middle of a convo between catches, they had the idea for this creative new drop.
Basketball player Allen Iverson, who once considered becoming a professional fisherman, had the help of a creative team that included Frank Cooker and Nice Kicks in this creation. So, the new iteration of this shoe option features special materials and regions that shine in the absence of light. It’s an apt choice of silhouette for a dive into AI’s personality as well: the design is a special-edition Question inspired by Allen Iverson’s love of fishing 🎣.
This ethos is taken even further from a build standpoint, thanks to a versatile mix of materials that includes a shaggy, soft, suede. DMX cushioning is loaded in both heel and forefoot for the Question’s signature punch of performance tech, with yellow heel badges split between Iverson’s #3 (left foot) and Nice Kicks’ comic text bubble (right foot).
The legendary basketball sneaker comes dressed in a mix of vibrant and neutral colors that are closely linked to fishing and outdoor attire and include beige, black, purple, teal, and yellow. Unique features include the glow-in-the-dark detailing that nods to the illusive characteristics of a tactical lure and the fish graphic insoles. Featuring colors and construction primed for day casting lines, this mid-top pair counts even 3M hits to attract fish.
Lucky recipients of a friends and family Bubba Chuck kit receive even more: the dope special edition is packaged in a tackle box and accompanied by a bucket hat, personalized fishing license and die-cut stickers.
