Reebok's foray into performance basketball reached its zenith during Allen Iverson's iconic tenure with the Philadelphia 76ers. Among the standout moments from this era was the release of the Reebok Answer 4 in 2000, a silhouette that has since become a fan favorite. As part of the rejuvenation of Reebok Basketball under the leadership of legends Allen Iverson and Shaquille O'Neal, the brand is set to reintroduce the Reebok Answer 4 in a new colorway: Flash Red Core Black
This iteration of the Reebok Answer 4 stands out with its striking color scheme and high-quality construction. The sneaker's upper is crafted from premium tumbled leather, predominantly in dark shades, for a sleek and versatile appearance. Bold flashes of red add vibrancy, adorning the collar, tongue, and sockliner, providing a striking contrast against the core black base.
The grey accent on Allen Iverson's signature logo on the midfoot and the Vector logo on the heel adds a subtle yet impactful touch to the design. The sneaker is equipped with Reebok's innovative DMX cushioning technology in the sole, ensuring a comfortable and responsive ride. A durable black rubber outsole complements this, which features a portrait of Iverson's face in the heel, a nod to the player's enduring influence on and off the court.
The Reebok Answer 4 Flash Red Core Black will release December 8, 2023, through Reebok and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $170. Keep it locked to the Sole Retriever mobile app for the latest updates on this release and more in the sneaker world.
