A First Look at the Reebok Answer 5 DMX Retro OG in White/Red

For the very first time, the Reebok Answer 5 DMX will be re-released in Retro form.

Originally released in 2001-02, the Reebok Answer 5 was the fifth installment within the popular Answer line while being Allen Iverson’s sixth signature sneaker.

The Retro version of the Reebok Answer 5 DMX looks nearly identical to the original. This ‘white/red’ version made its debut in the 2002 NBA All-Star game. However, the Retro is missing the “All-Star” branding on the rear heel.

It’s unknown if actual air-transfer DMX is featured as the cushioning system, but Reebok did use the air-transfer system in the recent Reebok Answer 1 Retro so we may see it used here as well.

An official release date for U.S. consumers is unknown, but the Reebok Answer 5 DMX OG is available now in Japan. Hopefully we see them release Stateside sooner rather than later.

  1. It may be the pictures but wasn’t the red portion on the upper a shinier material on the original?

  2. My favorite pair of Iversons look wise. But have to admit the traction wore out so quickly! Was it just me, or did everyone else have this problem?

  3. the answer 1 and legacy looked a lot much better. I’m waiting for those to end up on sale.
