Allen Iverson, a legend in the NBA, was as renowned for his on-court prowess as he was for his distinctive line of signature sneakers with Reebok. Among these, the Reebok Answer 3 holds a special place, embodying the style and spirit of Iverson's game. Following up on the revival of the Answer 3, first seen in a White Flash Red, a new Black White rendition has emerged. This release comes after the notable announcement of Shaquille O'Neal and Allen Iverson taking on the roles of President and Vice President of Reebok Basketball, respectively, marking a new era for the brand and its celebrated basketball lineage.
The Reebok Answer 3 Black White stays true to the original construction of the model, offering a nostalgic yet fresh appeal. The upper is crafted from black tumbled leather, giving the sneaker a luxurious and durable feel. The design is accented with red on the branding atop the tongue, adding a vibrant contrast to the otherwise monochromatic design.
Gold accents on Allen Iverson's logo on the lateral heel add a touch of elegance, honoring Iverson's legacy. Underneath, the sneaker features a white and black DMX-cushioned midsole, ensuring comfort and performance. This is paired with a black and white rubber outsole, providing excellent traction and completing the sneaker's sleek and timeless aesthetic.
The Reebok Answer 3 Black White will release in December 2023 through Reebok and select retailers online and in-store. The retail price is set at $140. Download the Sole Retriever mobile app for the latest information on this release and more in the sneaker and streetwear world.
