Profile of the Reebok Answer DMX

The Reebok Answer DMX is all about retro vibes with its standout look and outstanding features. One of the top features of this basketball shoe is the moving-air technology meant to offer an extra-cushioned ride. This comeback model also pays homage to Allen Iverson’s 1998 season, which can be seen on the play of colors on its upper.

Performance

Cushion. Among the highlights of these basketball shoes is its DMX moving-air technology. This cushioning system transfers air underfoot to match the movement of the foot. This results in a cushion that adapts to every stride for maximum comfort and flexibility. Additionally, these sneakers also feature an EVA midsole to further provide responsiveness and impact protection for the foot.

Traction. The brand has equipped the Answer DMX with a rubber outsole that boasts of excellent durability. A unique traction pattern is employed on the sole to provide the needed grip and stability to move smoothly around hard court surfaces.

Fit

Length and Width. These unisex basketball shoes are released in the standard sizes. Users can expect these sneakers to fit true to size like most Reebok shoes, so it is recommended to go for the usual sizes they are used to.

Lockdown. Reebok has designed these hoop shoes with the traditional lace-up closure placed on the midfoot. The laces allow for a secure and snug fit that keeps the foot in place throughout the game. These shoes also sport a mid-cut design that gives added support  and stability for the ankles.

Material

Leather and textile make up the upper of the Reebok Answer DMX. This combination work to provide the traditional support that contours to the shape of the foot. It also works to offer breathability so the feet stay fresh even during intense moments of the game. Additionally, the midfoot utilizes a lightly padded tongue also made of breathable mesh.

Style

Players describe the Answer DMX as one that gives off retro vibes with its style inspired by the classic 90s release from the brand. These sneakers pull inspiration from the sports’ Allen Iverson, as seen on the colors used on this model as well as the details added on the shoe. The Iverson branding is highlighted on the tongue, the sole, and the lateral side of the upper. Meanwhile, the Reebok callout and logo can be spotted around the midfoot.
