Do You Have To Pay Extra For The "Practice?!?" Model?

Breaking news in the world of basketball shoes(who's still rocking the Penny Foamposites?!). Reebok has partnered with Microsoft to produce a special version of the Answer XI sneaker. It's called the Answer XI Zune, and features an 8g Zune with an etching of Iverson on the back and is loaded with multimedia clips related to A.I.

Reebok and Zune have teamed up for the first time to bring you a limited edition Allen Iverson sneaker - the Answer XI Zune.

This partnership between Reebok and Zune brings together two things important to AI in his life - basketball and music.

Reebok has produced 60 pairs of a special version of Iverson's latest Reebok signature shoe - the Answer XI. For this limited-edition collection, the Answer XI has been designed featuring the Zune logo. The sneakers will be sold with a customized Zune 8g black digital media player, featuring etched AI graphics on the back that is loaded with special AI content including his Reebok commercials, playlists and interview footage of other Reebok athletes talking about the first time they played against AI in the league. The sneakers and Zune media player will also come in special packaging.

The Answer XI Zune collection will retail for $300 and be sold only at select boutique shops in five key markets. Each store will receive only 12 collectible packages, so be sure to be the first one in line at your local store!

No word on whether one of those clips is Iverson's famous "practice?!?" tirade.

There's also no word on whether Iverson's teammate, Carmelo Anthony, will get his own shoe featuring a breathalyzer and "stop snitching" memorablia.
