The Reebok Answer V was released in 2001, the year when Iverson cemented his reputation and legacy in the basketball league. He exhibited his gutsy performance in the Eastern Conference and brought his team to the championship. Although the '76ers did not win that season, many witnessed several unforgettable exhibitions Iverson showcased on the hard courts.
Although it was dubbed as "V", the RBK V is actually the 6th signature shoe series of Allen Iverson. He was seen sporting this footwear throughout the 2001-2002 NBA season. In 2019, the Answer V was retro-ed and made its first appearance in ComplexCon 2019. The colorway was designed by Eric Emanuel, the first person to rework the Iverson logo.
After revamping the Answer V with vibrant hues, Reebok launched it again during the holiday season, this time with a hint of patriotism. The Reebok Atmos Answer V displays a US-themed colorway, in an attempt to break the usual look of its predecessor. This collaborative project with Japanese brand Atmos is ornamented with stars on the upper for a more playful vibe. The lacing system, meanwhile, is shrouded with gold tumbled leather for a more playful vibe.
