Reebok Answer 4.5 Pulls Inspiration From Allen Iverson's Shooting Sleeve

Last December, Reebok and Allen Iverson announced plans to bring back all of his classic sneakers as part of the “Reebok I3 Legacy Collection” which included favorites such as the Answer IV, Answer V, and of course, the Reebok Question. Additionally, the ongoing I3 Legacy Collection will feature a couple of brand new silhouettes such as the newly unveiled Reebok Answer 4.5.

According to WearTesters, this retooled Answer 4 silhouette features a slip-on build and inner sleeve that is inspired by one of Iverson’s most memorable accessories, his full-length shooting sleeve. There are reportedly two colorways of the Reebok Answer 4.5 in the works, including a predominately white pair with red accents and another that strongly resembles the OG black/grey Answer IV. There’s also another hybrid silhouette in the works that takes design cues from the Answer I, Answer II and Answer III.

It’s still unclear when the Answer 4.5 will make its retail debut or how much they’ll retail for but it is rumored that the kicks could release as soon as this month.
