On April 15th, Reebok will officially re-issue the Answer IV signature shoe, the fourth model of Allen Iverson’s legacy with Reebok. Arguably the most popular and recognizable “Answer” model in history, the IV was notable for its pivotal role in the epic 2000-2001 NBA season during which A.I. won the league MVP while leading the Sixers to the Finals. Visually, the shoe was an absolutely standout thanks to the zippered shroud and velcro lockdown strap – a detail that would be later added as the zipper would undo itself during use.
As part of the 20th Anniversary celebration of the model, Reebok teamed with illustrator Peter Richter aka FloppyAction to create a limited-edition “Answer-versary” trading card. Just 199 units have been made, with a select number being distributed throughout partner retailers. 100 will be distributed via Finish Line, JD Sports, Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Shoe Palace as a gift with purchase or ‘surprise and delight’ for select consumers. 25 will be distributed pre-release as ‘surprise and delight’ from Reebok.com for premiere UNLOCKED members. 25 will be distributed at random as ‘surprise and delight’ from Reebok.com for UNLOCKED members who purchase the shoe. 3-4 will be autographed by Allen Iverson and set aside for the Reebok archive, auction and consumer giveaway (to be determined). Remaining will be distributed as gifts for partners and friends of the brand.
Mark your calendars for April 15th for the official release; you can find the online at the shops listed below for $130.
