Allen Iverson Shoes - I3 Legacy

Word of new Iverson shoes hitting the market broke out in December 2017. Eight months later, Reebok officially launched the I3 Legacy, a shoe which has a bit of a 1990s nostalgia feel to it as exemplified by the colorway (which comes in red/white, sky blue/white, and black versions) and design. Its patented DMX cushioning moves air back and forth from the forefoot to the heel for a comfortable feel on and off the basketball court.

Why We Love It:

  • Unique DMX cushioning.
  • Lightweight EVA midsole.

Allen Iverson Shoe - Reebok Answer 4.5

Reebok released the Answer 4.5 in August 2018. The main inspiration behind this Reebok Allen Iverson shoe was the shooting sleeve he wore during his illustrious NBA career. Perhaps its best attribute is its inner cleatie, which gives the wearer a comfortable fit. Buyers also give these kicks props because the inner sleeve and standard lacing system secures their feet in place for greater on-court performance.

Why We Love It:

  • Comfortable inner cleatie.
  • A tribute to his famous shooting sleeve.

Allen Iverson Shoe - Reebok Question Mid “Misunderstood”

Reebok launched the Question Mid “Misunderstood” Allen Iverson shoe in April 2016.  According to Reebok’s official website, “Allen Iverson didn’t set out to make a statement with his style or cause controversy for the sake of it. Iverson just wanted to be himself…and win his game.” The most eye-catching feature of these kicks are the various newspaper texts scribbled on the white colorway (a.k.a. the “Bad News” version), which represents The Answer’s hometown of Newport News, Virginia.

Why We Love It

  • Very unique and catchy design.

Allen Iverson Basketball Shoe - Reebok Answer V

Reebok originally launched the Answer V in 2001, the year Allen Iverson’s Philadelphia 76ers made it to the NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers. The manufacturer had a retro release or the red and white colorway in Japan on August 1, 2019 and the classic black and white version launched soon after. The picture of A.I. on the insole and his “I3” branding on the heel set this shoe apart from the others. One of our all-time favorite Iverson shoes. 

Why We Love It:

  • Photo of A.I. on the insole.
  • Allen Iverson’s “I3” branding on the heel

Rebook Allen Iverson Shoe - Answer DMX 10

Reebok launched the Answer DMX 10 in August 2013. This is one of the most uniquely-designed Allen Iverson shoes on the market: black remains the dominant colour while the translucent outsole is gold. The Reebok Answer DMX 10 is strong and durable yet light on your feet – adjectives which describe A.I.’s game in a nutshell. 

Why We Love It

  • Slick design and unique Iverson shoe
  • Captures the essence of A.I.’s game: strong and quick.


Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson was one of the most fearless scorers in NBA history. At just six feet tall, The Answer wasn’t afraid of anybody: he’d take it to the hole and score on the league’s best defensive stoppers. If you try to put the clamps on A.I., he’d resort to his patented killer crossover and break your ankles. Absolutely nothing fazed him.

His legacy lives on in his Allen Iverson shoe line that remains popular today. If you’re a big A.I. fan, wearing his kicks can help you take your game to a different level. His shoe line is also a great way of telling the future generations how Allen Iverson stood head and shoulders above everybody else on the basketball court.
