Allen Iverson wore his signature Reebok Answer IVs during a landmark season, in which the legendary point guard led his Philadelphia 76ers against the L.A. Lakers in the 2001 NBA Finals. (The Sixers would lose in five, ruining a storybook season in which Iverson won the NBA steals title and was named the regular season MVP.) The kicks themselves are a must-have for vintage basketball sneaker aficionados, featuring full-length DMX cushioning and a unique zip-up closure system. Iverson’s “Only the Strong Survive” credo, tattooed along his arm, adorns the outsole in the same script, just above a black and white imprint of Iverson’s likeness set into the heel. The limited-edition Reebok Answer IV in White/Black lands at select retailers on August 10th. Check out more looks in the gallery below, including recent shots of Iverson sporting his classic signature kicks.
