Flashing back to the best year in the future Hall of Fame playing career of Allen Iverson, the Reebok Answer IV has returned in the original White/Red colorway. Originally released in 2000, the Answer IV was worn during Iverson’s history MVP and NBA Finals 2000-2001 season.
Often described as the best performance model from Iverson’s Reebok signature line, the Answer IV features a mid-cut design with a leather upper that provides superior comfort, support and long-lasting wear. Foot is locked in with a lace-up front, unique zip-up closure system and a heel pull-tab. Full-length DMX Foam provides cushioning and sits atop a rubber outsole with a lightweight 3D Ultralite bottom.
Iverson’s mantra that he wears on his arm – “Only the Strong Survive” – adorns the outsole of the shoe in the same script as his famous tattoo. An imprint of his face can be found set into the heel, picturing him with cornrows and a headband: his characteristic style circa 2001.
