Reebok just announced they are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Allen Iverson’s Answer IV by bringing back the original White and Red colorway worn by the 6-foot guard during his historic 2000-2001 MVP campaign. Featuring a unique zip-up shroud and racing-inspired upper, the polarizing design is of the most coveted from Iverson’s signature Reebok “Answer” series.
“Answer IV is the crown jewel of Iverson’s journey and the cultural shift he helped to lead,” recalls veteran Reebok Footwear Designer Xavier Jones. “By his ’00-’01 season, ‘Chuck’ was already so beloved for his style and how he approached the game, but that year truly cemented A.I. as a cultural icon. On his feet, Answer IV became a symbol for the new era of modern athletes and a celebration of self-expression. It is without a doubt one of the most iconic sneakers to ever grace the hardwood.”
This Reebok Answer 4 features elements from the original like fading gradient “I3” logo cascading down the tongue veiled by the zipper shroud, 3M reflective details returning to the “I3” quarter panels and top of the tongue, the original eye-catching upper, and a dynamic outsole featuring DMX foam, a TPU bridge plate, and tactical tread patterns. The outsole is complemented by OG graphic executions like the Iverson head sunken underfoot, engraved “Only The Strong Survive” tagline, and “I3” and Vector logos at the bridge and forefoot.
