Profile of the Reebok Iverson Legacy

Designed by Xavier Jones, the Reebok Iverson Legacy is a hybrid of Allen Iverson’s previous signature shoes such as the Question, Answer 1, and Answer 3. Similar to the vintage basketball shoe models, the upper of the Iverson Legacy comes with patent leather and mixed materials. It has a high-top silhouette with an authentic and classic design. It boasts the traditional DMX cushioning for responsiveness.

Cushion. The Reebok Iverson Legacy features the classic DMX cushioning encased in a lightweight EVA midsole. The DMX technology is like an air mattress. The air moves from the forefoot to the heel and vice versa as wearers strut the court.

The Allen Iverson Legacy comes with a removable EVA insole. This allows Orthotics for those who want to customize their step-in comfort.

Traction. The outsole of these Iverson Legacy shoes is the exact replica of the Reebok Answer 1. The pattern is split into two sections for the forefoot and the heel. The sections have four pods each. It gives a natural feel with the heel-to-toe transition.

The pods provide ease of movement as air flows from the forefoot to the heel and back. Heavier hoopers who can push the pods will definitely feel the optimum responsiveness of these Allen Iverson shoes.

Length and Width. The Reebok Iverson Legacy is designed in the standard length and width. Even so, there is not a lot of feedback regarding the sizing and fit of this shoe model. New buyers need to fit the shoe in-store before the purchase. 

This hybrid model is also a unisex shoe. Women can go down one size to a size and a half to get the right fit.

Lockdown. As a classic basketball shoe, the Allen Iverson Legacy follows the standard lace-up closure. To keep the shoelaces from getting loose and distracting the game, the midfoot features a strap to lock them down.

The upper of the Iverson Legacy is made of patent leather and mixed materials. The combination of materials delivers comfort, aesthetic goodness, and durability.

Reebok Iverson Legacy Upper1


The high-top silhouette of the Reebok Iverson Legacy is a combination of the older Allen Iverson models which are the Answer 1, Answer 3, and Question. These Legacy shoes have the outsole of Answer 1, the midfoot design of the Question, and the build of Answer 3.
