For one of the true all-time great NBA stars, Allen Iverson sure put up with an inordinate amount of speculative, officious nonsense about his personal style.
AI’s unreleased rap album, which sportswriters across the country were shocked to learn used curse words, and 2002’s practice incident were already history when the NBA implemented its infamous “business attire” dress code in 2005.
Denim, sneakers (!?), workboots, do-rags, ostentatious jewelry, jerseys, and hats, among other things were banned under the new dress code. Although these items were standard fare on every street, and suburban shopping mall for that matter, in the country, they were, unofficially, chalked up to the pernicious influence of Allen Iverson. Apparently, they had to be stopped. Fortunately, in the eyes of history, sense prevailed. Allen Iverson is remembered as a legend, and the NBA dress code is considered out of touch fussiness.
Reebok pays tribute to the newly minted hall of famer, and his dangerous denim with a “Dress Code” edition of his signature Question sneaker. A denim/suede construction references the street style that proved as unstoppable as AI’s crossovers.
