Reebok — DMX Cushioning

Sneaker Shown: Reebok Answer I

Year: 1997

Anybody who has ever worn the Answer I, or any other Reebok shoe with DMX tech, knows of its testament to comfort. DMX consisted of movable air pockets built in between the midsole and outsole of the shoe, which absorbed the energy exerted by the impact of one's foot to a surface by transferring cushioned air to the point where the shoe contacted the ground. Thus, air would essentially flow from heel to toe and back again as you walked the streets or ran the court. If there was ever a question as to the strength of the Iverson signature line, DMX cushioning was surely the answer.
