Reebok Releasing Special Edition Answer IV ‘Playoff Pack’ with Box Featuring Iverson Step Over (Pics)
Reebok is releasing a limited special edition of the shoes worn by Allen Iverson during one of the most iconic plays in NBA history.
That play, of course, is The Step Over from Game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals between the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers.
With less than a minute left in overtime, Iverson put then-Laker and current Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue on skates with a killer crossover and nailed a two-pointer that gave the Sixers the lead for good. Then, after the shot went it, Lue fell onto the court right in Iverson’s path. So Iverson just stepped right over him.
Take a look:
To celebrate that iconic moment, Reebok is coming out with an extremely limited Answer IV “Playoff Pack.” It will include the iconic white and black Answer IVs Iverson was wearing when he stepped over Lue, as well as a special edition wristband. But the best part of the Playoff Pack is the collector’s box, which will feature a foam mold on the inside and a silhouette image of The Step Over on the outside.
Take a look:
Unfortunately, it’s not going to be easy to get your hands on these special edition Answer IVs. Reebok is releasing just 500 pairs.
