Although Allen Iverson‘s on-court legacy is often associated to the Reebok Question Mid, other footwear like the Reebok Answer IV also played a pivotal role in the Virginia-native cementing his legacy within the basketball and associated worlds. Tomorrow, the model’s original “Flash Red/White/MGH Solid Grey” colorway returns.

Worn throughout Iverson’s iconic 2000-01 NBA season, during which he secured the league MVP award, the forthcoming pair is a close replica of what debuted 20 years ago. A mix of tumbled and smooth leather make up the majority of the upper, with “I3”-branded rubber detailing entering the mix along the mid-foot. Zippers and lockdown straps also reprise their original roles, with the latter being a modification added during the Answer IV‘s heyday to address the former becoming undone during gameplay. Grey accents on the top of the tongue don’t feature a reflective finish like A.I.’s personal pair, but they work in-tandem with the remainder of the supporting components to capture the turn of the century perfectly. Lastly, DMX foam cushioning delivers the same responsive tooling that assisted the then-Philadelphia 76er in his dominance over every foe he encountered.

Enjoy official images of Reebok‘s latest Iverson retro here below, and find pairs arriving to Reebok.com tomorrow, April 15th.
