IV once worn by legendary point guard Allen Iverson during an unforgettable season where Iverson was crowned as the league’s MVP, the shoe is making a comeback in 2012. It’s been over a decade since its original release in 2001, but the Reebok Answer IV still holds its charisma as it once helped Iverson led the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA Finals against the Lakers.
Collectors, be prepared to admire its full-length DMX cushioning technology and the unique zip-up closure system once again. Show off the outsole of the shoe in the same script as Iverson’s tattoo: Only the Strong Survive. In the new release, find a black/white imprint of Iverson’s face set into the heel, picturing him with cornrows and a headband, his characteristic style circa 2001.
The Reebok Answer IV will be available at key retailers including Foot Locker, Finish Line, Champs and more on August 8th. This will be a one-time drop in 2012, so hurry up and prepare to shell out $115 for a pair of the awesomeness.
