Reebok Answer V "White/Red"

First released in 2001, the Reebok Answer 5 is one of the most-lauded models in Allen Iverson‘s signature line, and it’s set to return to the market for the first time ever this July. Worn by the pugnacious point guard during the 2001-02 NBA season, the Answer V had more than a handful of memorable moments, as Iverson sported this exact white/red colorway for the 2001 All-Star game in Philadelphia and also rocked the silhouette in a classic commercial with Jadakiss. Featuring a 5/8 cut and DMX cushioning, the Answer V is geared towards speed and quickness, but sacrifices no quality in that pursuit thanks to a premium leather upper. Signature detailing then arrives via the large red lace shroud and nylon hook-and-loop fastener band for a custom fit. Iverson’s recognizable I3 logo is dispersed through, and a portrait of the man himself is printed on the insole to complete the look. You can expect these lovingly recreated classics to make their long-overdue comeback on July 1st.
