Kobe Bryant redefined sneaker free agency as the Black Mamba went from adidas to Nike. But before landing with the Swoosh, Bryant experimented with a handful of brands — creating one of the most interesting and PE-heavy sneaker free agency runs of all time.
While he couldn’t wear the same brand consecutively for more than three games during his 2002-2003 sneaker free agency, Kobe Bryant had a history of wearing Reeboks from the Question to the Answer IV in purple & gold variations.
As Reebok goes into its archives, it’s finally releasing the white and purple Answer IV dubbed the Reebok Answer IV “Free Agency” colorway. Dressed in a white leather upper with court purple accents, the “Free Agency” Answer IV marks a special time for ‘Bok history as well as Mamba fanatics.
The Reebok Answer IV “Free Agency” releases for $170 on July 14, 2023, on Reebok.com and select retailers.
