Packer x Reebok Answer IV: Sneakers release date, price, where to buy
Packer Shoes is partnering with Reebok to release the Packer x Reebok Answer IV on Friday, April 29, with a retail price of $180.
The Answer IV is of course part of Allen Iverson’s long-standing signature line with Reebok. Having signed with the Vector right out of Georgetown in 1996, Iverson was already a sneaker success before what would become his career year, the 2000-01 NBA season. Iverson would have individual success – winning the 2001 All-Star Game MVP, scoring title with 31.1 points per game, All-NBA First Team honors and regular season MVP – while leading the 76ers to their first NBA Finals since 1983.
It would be in this finale that the Answer IV, and perhaps Iverson himself, would have a signature moment. Amid a 48-point effort in Game 1 upset by the eventual Lakers champion, Iverson would bury a shot then climb over Ty Luethe culmination of a Hall of Fame career.
The Answer IV has been reissued several times over the years, including a pair commemorating the climb overa 20th anniversary OG retro and a previous collaboration with Packer. The colorway released on Friday, similar to the previous Packer collab, replaces the leather on parts of the upper and on the zipper with gray mesh. There are also pops of red to go with the white leather to complete the look.
