Allen Iverson in the Reebok Answer 3

Today in Performance Sneaker History: Allen Iverson Sets Playoff Steals Record in Reebok Answer 3

11-time NBA All-Star Allen Iverson is mostly known for his offensive prowess, but A.I. was by no means a slouch on defense. On May 13, 1999, Iverson set the NBA Playoff record for most steals in a game with 10 against Orlando. He also dropped 33 points on the Magic as the Sixers won 97-85. They would end up dropping the Magic 3-1 in the series before being swept by the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

In ’99, Iverson was wearing his fourth Reebok signature shoe, the Answer 3. This DMX-equipped model has yet to see the retro treatment from Reebok Classics, but it’s certainly a possibility with the recent drop of the Answer IV and the upcoming Answer 1. Stay tuned!
