Dating back to 2001, Game 1 of the NBA Finals was a memorable moment for Allen Iverson. Iverson did what is known throughout the world as the ’Step Over’. After draining a 20 foot jump shot, he stepped over Ty Lue.
As a tribute to that moment, Reebok will release once again the original colorway he wore during the game which is known now as the Reebok Answer IV ’Stepover’.
Reebok Answer IV is being re-released in its OG construction, with a Black and White premium leather upper on top of a black sole unit featuring the patented DMX cushioning system. A zippered shroud covering the lacing system and an image of Iverson on the outsole surrounded by the phrase ‘Only The Strong Survive’ provide the defining details on this innovative design.
