The 1980s gave birth to the signature basketball shoe as many players received their own shoe model from footwear companies nationwide, but in 1989 Patrick Ewing took it one step further by becoming the first professional basketball player to have his own shoe company. The first release from the company was the 33 Hi, and now it gracefully returns this month in multiple colorways. The flagship Ewing Athletics shoe features a classic reversible ankle strap, a “Patrick Ewing” signature on the side, a reinforced heel, a full leather or suede upper, “Ewing” and “33″ plastered on the rear and all the classic details from on the original version from decades past.

After a previous limited release, the first two colorways from the rebirth of Ewing Athletics will now be available for a general release at Kith Manhattan and KithNYC.com for $100 USD on Saturday, September 29th at 11 am EST.
