The fan-favorite Reebok Answer 1 ‘White/Red’, one of Allen Iverson’s very first sneakers with the Vector brand, will be getting an exclusive release in China next week.
In early July, WearTesters reported that this Answer 1, which celebrates the 1997 Rookie of the Year Allen Iverson, would be back to celebrate the 20th anniversary of A.I.’s achievement. This release will be the first time that this colorway gets the retro treatment.
The Answer 1 ‘Rookie of the Year’ flaunts a white tumbled leather upper with red patent leather accents. The EVA midsole gets gold plugs and the flowpack, not the 100% true DMX moving air setup the original had. It appears the shoe is being marketed as a lifestyle retro overseas.
The Reebok Answer 1 ‘White/Red’ will release exclusively in China on September 22. It will arrive in Hong Kong in October, so it may arrive Stateside around the same time. We will update you when we know more.
If this shoe comes Stateside will you be looking to pick it up? This writer certainly will be!
