5. Reebok Answer IV “Finals”
Kobe may have cut out the hearts of Philly fans, but Reebok cut out the hearts of sneakerheads when they put AI in the unreleased Reebok Answer IV “Finals”. Flip-flopping the colorway of his Game 1 shoe, this Answer exclusive had everyone questioning whether or not they’d ever come out. Years later this colorway would release when the Answer IV got the team bank treatment, but the new team run was sans DMX cushioning. A proper performance retro would definitely have crossover appeal.
