Despite the so-called “Ewing Theory” by ESPN’s Bill Simmons, you have to credited former NBA star Patrick Ewing for his loyalty to the New York Knicks. From the start of his basketball career in 1985 to 2000, Ewing was not just a ball player on Madison Square Garden‘s storied court of but a cornerstone for the team that saw the sport’s highs and lows. Such devotion to a sport, a team, and its fans is now finally acknowledged through the return of Patrick Ewing’s own footwear label, Ewing Athletics, and its flagship model, the Ewing Athletics 33 Hi. Just like the big man himself, there isn’t a shred of fancy technical hardware on the shoe. Instead, you will find a hearty construct of leather and suede, completed by Ewing’s signature as well as the reversible ankle strap. Available starting August 31st at a handful of retailers including KITH‘ Manhattan location for US$ 100 each.
