SoleCollector: Reebok Only Made 42 Pairs of These Exclusive Allen Iverson Sneakers
Reebok created 42 pairs of the "Roundball" Answer 4 exclusively for the Allen Iverson All Americans. The sneakers use a full-grain leather upper with a black and gold color combination chosen by Iverson himself.
Unlike the traditional Answer 4's leather quarter panel, this exclusive "Roundball" iteration uses mesh for added breathability and weight reduction, which gives the retro model more of a performance edge. Further details include a camouflage patterned liner, binding, and outsole—a nod to A.I.'s general-like leadership at the point guard position—and woven "you were chosen" labels behind the shoe's tongue.
The Iverson Roundball Classic tips off today, April 19 at 6 p.m. ET through Saturday, April 21. Standout names in the event include UCLA commit Shareef O'Neal and Georgetown commit Mac McClung, the latter of whom recently topped Iverson as Virginia's all-time high school scoring leader.
