Original Story (05/08/21): The Reebok Answer IV is remembered as the iconic shoe worn by Allen Iverson during his MVP NBA season in 2001. Back for the first time since its debut, Reebok revives the white/black colorway worn by AI during games 4 and 5 of the Finals as he faced off against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Not to be confused with the other black/white colorway worn by Iverson in Game 1, this Answer IV comes dressed in white leather from the toe box to the heel while black tumbled leather is found higher up closer to the ankle. The insole pays tribute to our protagonist’s famous tattoos with a graphic of his right arm. A zipper shroud protects the laces. At the ground level, outsoles consist of Reebok’s DMX cushioning and reserve a space for silver TPU that portraitizes Iverson’s mug.
The Reebok Answer IV “White/Black” doesn’t have an official release date yet, but is expected to drop in the coming weeks on the Reebok site.
Update (06/13/22): The Reebok Answer IV “Finals” drops on Friday, June 24th at midnight ET on Reebok.com.
