Reebok Answer 12

A12A12

It is hard to believe that Allen Iverson has been in the League since 1996. It seems like yesterday Iverson was playing in the Big East tournament against Ray Allen in Madison Square Garden. For 13 seasons we’ve watched Allen tear the NBA up. Iverson has one, if not the most loyal fan bases a professional athlete can have.

Even through the tough times A.I.’s fans ride out for him. The Answer’s ride throughout his career as an NBA player has been a journey that not too many can say they have been on. Reebok tried to emulate that with Iverson’s latest signature shoe, the Answer 12.

The back of the A12 has an excerpt from the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley (if you’re in a black fraternity then you know this poem very well!). Invictus has been very instrumental in Iverson’s life. The poem speaks on how one is the master of their fate and the captain of one’s soul.

The A12 drops in February and will hit your pockets for $100.

    Two years for awesome shoes, you had the Jordan XI’s in 95-96′ that AI wore his sophmore/last year and at georgetown,

    Then of course the questions which were 96′-97′ those were sweet shoes, Id love to find a pair again at some point,

    For those two seasons my kick game was not lacking – Iverson is a legend!

    REEBOK IS HAVING A TOUGH TIME IN THE BASKETBALL CATERGORY, BUT THEY ARE STILL ON OF THE TOP BRANDS IN THE WORLD. THEY DID 2.5 BILLION LAST YEAR, SO WHEN THEY DRO B-BALL IN THE U.S. (IN ABOUT 3 YEARS) IT WONT REALLY MATTER TO THEM

    Reebok really slipped up with their Iverson campaign. They had some dope shoes early on, but they’ve gone to shit since the Answer IVs. They got one of the most popular players in the league and they haven’t even brought out a decent looking shoe for him in almost a decade.

  • jr

    I love tha Shoe but what about that 3 since he is #1 for tha moment but i guess they don’t care or he don’t care he still thinks he’s #3 well he will get his old # back when he signs wit Philly next season anyway either way I’m buying it
