12. Reebok Answer

Year released: 1997 

D-M-X! The Reebok Answer was a huge step away from The Question in terms of design and technology. Allen Iverson's second signature shoe was lighter, slimmer, and lower than The Question, and also were the first basketball shoe to feature 10-pod DMX cushioning, which moved air from one part of the sole to another. The full-on patent leather models (a blue that released in the U.S. and a red that didn't) gave you instant street cred.
