Reebok has officially unveiled its upcoming “Alternates” basketball pack featuring three special takes on heritage models including the Kamikaze II and two iterations of Question Mid, each paying homage to historic alternate uniforms of the ‘90s, ‘00s and today. In recognition of National Homeless Youth Awareness Month, Reebok has also partnered with non-profit StandUp for Kids to help provide funding, support and resources to at-risk homeless youth.

Across sport, alternate uniforms represent a defining moment in any team’s legacy, moments on court where history meets newness, moments where over the years Reebok’s basketball partners have been front and center:

Reebok Question Mid “Black/Gold” (November 20)
– Executed with an old school black, beige and red color blocking, commemorates Allen Iverson’s revamped team look from ’97 and the new era of swagger ushered in by The Answer.
Reebok Kamikaze II “Black/Green/Red” (November 20)
-Previewed on court by Montrezl Harrell during the 2020 playoffs, this high-contrast red, green and black iteration nods those controversial rare alternates of the late ‘90s worn by Shawn Kemp and team.
Reebok Question Mid “Yellow Toe” (Coming Soon)
-Debuted on court by pro point guard Quinn Cook during the 2020 playoffs, pays homage to the team’s special all-white alternates typically worn on Sundays and for holiday games. Availability to be confirmed.

Additionally, each year, an estimated 4.2 million youth and young adults experience homelessness, 700,000 of which are unaccompanied minors. In 2019 alone, through tactical street outreach, mentoring, in-bound counseling and housing support, StandUp for Kids executed more than 45,000 instances of youth service, provided nearly 23,000 meals and housed over 284 youth across the country.

In honor of the November program and in recognition of National Homeless Youth Awareness Month, Reebok, alongside professional basketball player Tamera “Ty” Young, will provide sneakers and funding to StandUp for Kids in support of the organization’s efforts. On Tuesday, November 17, Young will visit StandUp for Kids’ Atlanta Chapter where she’ll meet with high school athlete volunteers to donate and sort pairs of Reebok footwear for the program’s street outreach initiatives.

Reebok’s “Alternates” basketball pack is available globally from Reebok.com, Finish Line and select local retailers beginning November 20, with the Question Mid “Yellow Toe” dropping at a later date.
