The Reebok Answer IV White Red & Grey is set to return in its OG form on April the 9th and retails for $130. Reebok is continuing to revive some of its most iconic shoes and I’m glad the brand is taking this route. We were first graced with the Reebok Pump Omni Zone II a few weeks ago and now the Iverson’s. I remember picking up a pair of the Answer IV via Ross in 2001 for $39.99. I was actually surprised to find several other pairs collecting dust via department stores. So if anyone tells you that these shoes were flying off shelves when they first hit the market, that would be a lie. I’m not saying that people weren’t buying them, but they were relatively not hard to come by.
Allen Iverson may no longer entertain us with his iconic, but he will always be remembered as one of the best isolation players the NBA has ever seen. The 2000-2001 season was a marquee period i for AI; that same year he won the NBA MVP award, and also won the All Star Game MVP award ( back when it really mattered). He ended the year averaging 31.1 points with 2.5 steals per game. He then met Kobe Bryant and the Lakers in the NBA final, which many thought Philly will lose by being swept. But Iverson wouldn’t have it, he went into the first game of the series with rage, scoring 48 points, trash talking the entire game, slaying Tyron Lue with a jumper, stepping over him in typical AI fashion, a moment that became iconic and forever seared in our minds. In that same game, Iverson was wearing his own signature shoes, the Reebok Answer 4 IV. So for folks that love that era of the NBA, this is the type of memory this shoe brings back. They come in a white red and grey leather upper with many other important details referencing AI throughout the entire shoe- Iverson I3 logo on the forefoot panels, a quote of his (Only The Strong Survive) on the insole as well. They are a mid cut shoe, equipped with full DMX cushioning and an innovative lacing system covered by a zipper.
