2013 has the making of a big year for Reebok Classic basketball. After a resurgence at the end of 2012, this year seems to be the big re-launching point for the brand’s old-school basketball kicks. The first of those to hit this year will be an OG colorway of the Reebok Answer IV in Black/Grey/Red. Black tumbled leather takes care of the ankles and extends over the laces where it connects at a zipper – part of an innovative lacing system that debuted on the Answer IV. Smooth leather takes care of the rest of the upper and the front of the midsole with the exception of the shoe’s “wings” which are reflective grey and surround Allen Iverson’s I3 brand logo. An artistic rendering of Iverson’s face appears on the bottom of the shoe under the heel beneath a quote “Only The Strong Survive” which is also one of the AI’s most iconic tattoos.
The Reebok Answer IV Black/Grey/Red is available today, January 11, at Foot Locker and online at Footlocker.com for $125. A link to buy online can be found below.
