Allen Iverson’s Original Reebok Answer Is Re-Releasing
Allen Iverson‘s Reebok Answer holds a special place in the esteemed pantheon of legendary signature basketball shoes. First released in 1997, AI’s second signature sneaker continued the legacy started by the Reebok Question in 1996 with a look that was unique, tough, and timeless — just like the fearless guard himself. The Answer has re-released several times (most recently in 2013) but never before in one colorway: the original white/red. However, everything always comes full circle in the world of sneakers. Now, a long 21 years after the Answer first came to shelves, it’s dropping again in an OG Sixers-styled colorway. All the details that made the shoe a classic, from the graffiti-style Iverson branding on the tongue and the bright red DMX-cushioned outsole are intact, making for a loving homage to a classic piece of Reebok hoops history — and a premium white tumbled leather ensures that the Answer retains its retro construction. These heritage AI kicks are set to release exclusively in China September 22nd, so stay tuned for updates on a possible US release as they’re available.
