Editor’s Notes: After debuting the shoe in September of last year, Salomon has released its long-awaited runner, the Index.01. The Index.01 is a performance running sneaker that is designed to be recycled, featuring a recycled polyester upper, TPU bottom unit, and molded sock liner made from recycled EVA foam. At the end of the shoe’s life cycle, the insole is to be removed, while the upper and bottom portion are separated from one another. The polyester upper can then be reused to create new fabric, and the bottom unit can be recycled to make Salomon ski boots.

Editor’s Notes: Allen Iverson undoubtedly had many memorable moments throughout his decorated NBA career. Reebok is remembering one such instance with the “Why Not Us?” Question Mid. The white and black colorway pays homage to A.I.’s 2001 NBA All-Star Game MVP honor, when he led an undersized Eastern Conference squad back from 19 down to win the contest. After the game, Iverson touched on the comeback by stating, “Everybody was saying we couldn’t win because of our size. It’s about the size of your heart. Coming into the fourth quarter, we were all sitting on the sideline saying ‘Why not us?’.”
