Ahead of this week’s return, Foot Locker highlights the 2012 retro of the White/Red/Flat Grey edition of Allen Iverson’s Reebok Answer IV.
For the second time this year, Reebok will bring back one of Allen Iverson’s best signature shoes in the Answer IV – this time in a white/red/flat grey colorway. The Answer IV is one of Reebok’s most iconic basketball shoes to go along with one of the best players of his generation. In August, the black/white version of the IV dropped. This Friday, November 30, the white/red version will drop. The Answer IV is a mid-cut basketball shoe with full DMX cushioning and an innovative lacing system that is covered by a zipper. With white tumbled leather making up the shoes upper around the ankle, red leather takes car of the toe while a cutout of flat grey appears midfoot on either side of the shoe. Iverson’s I3 brand logo can be found on either side of the shoe in the cutout as well as on the outsole. The sole of the Answer IVs has an artist rendering of Iverson’s face with his iconic head band and corn rows under the phrase “Only The Strong Survive,” which is also tattooed on Iverson’s left arm.
The Reebok Answer IV White/Red/Flat Grey drops on Friday, November 30 at Foot Locker and online at Footlocker.com. A link to buy this pair online will be posted here once it goes live. The Answer IV costs $120. Detailed photos as well as a video of Iverson discussing everything from his shoes to his style to his career can be found below.
