A lot of us have been waiting a cool minute for these to re-release, which is why we’re happy to announce the return of the Reebok Answer 4 OG. 

Confirmed by Reebok, the Reebok Answer 4 OG will return just in time to celebrate its 20th anniversary. First worn by Allen Iverson during his historic 2000-2001 MVP campaign, details on the Reebok Answer 4 OG include the unique zip-up shroud and racing-inspired upper. The design on this model is without a doubt the most coveted from Iverson’s signature Reebok “Answer” series.

“Answer IV is the crown jewel of Iverson’s journey and the cultural shift he helped to lead,” recalls veteran Reebok Footwear Designer Xavier Jones. “By his ’00-’01 season, ‘Chuck’ was already so beloved for his style and how he approached the game, but that year truly cemented A.I. as a cultural icon. On his feet, Answer IV became a symbol for the new era of modern athlete and a celebration of self-expression. It is without a doubt one of the most iconic sneakers to ever grace the hardwood.”

This reissue of the Reebok Answer 4 OG comes with original design elements like the fading gradient “I3” logo cascading down the tongue veiled by the zipper shroud, 3M reflective details returning to the “I3” quarter panels and top of tongue, the original eye-catching upper and a dynamic outsole featuring DMX foam, a TPU bridge plate and tactical tread patterns. The outsole is complemented by OG graphic executions like the Iverson head sunken underfoot, engraved “Only The Strong Survive” tagline and “I3” and Vector logos at the bridge and forefoot.

Retailing for $130, the Reebok Answer 4 OG drops on April 15th at select retailers and Reebok.com.

In honor of the 20th Anniversary launch, Reebok has partnered with rising sports illustrator Peter Richter (aka Floppy Action) to design and issue a limited run of 199 serial-numbered commemorative “Answer-Versary” trading cards paying homage to the iconic sneaker and Iverson’s 2000-2001 MVP season.
