Allen Iverson’s Reebok Answer 5 Returning For First Time Since 2001

“Make sure you go get the A5…”

Reebok’s run of Allen Iverson retros has largely been dominated by the iconic Reebok Question and the beloved Reebok Answer IV, with some colorways of the Reebok Answer DMX sprinkled in. Now, Reebok is giving the retro treatment to one of Iverson’s most popular signature sneakers, the Reebok Answer V.

The kicks first debuted back in 2001 in both mid and low-top styles, but they haven’t released since then. That is, until now.

The white & red Reebok Answer 5 OG is currently available in Japan including at Gallery2.co.jp, but it is believed they’ll be available in the U.S. in the very near future.

It remains to be seen if the OG “Black/Silver” and “White/Silver,” or the low-top “White/Black” renditions will be returning to retailers as well, but we’ll keep you posted with any developments.
