Biochemistry biochemistry question about allosteric inhibitors

I have a question related to allosteric inhibitors..

let's say we have an allosteric inhibitor of an enzyme, If the noncompetitive inhibitor binding to the enzyme at the site of substrate will decrease the Vmax but won't decrease the Km, what about the allosteric inhibitor of the enzyme, will it also decrease the Vmax only and will it differ if the allosteric inhibitor binds reversibly or irreversibly??

thanks in advance
