Patrick Ewing: Shoe brand

Patrick founded Ewing Athletics back in 1989. He became the first basketball star to have his own shoe brand.

The first model Patrick wore was the Rebound during the 1989 season, but the first main release from his brand became the 33 HI. This model has gone on to become a best-seller in New York City, becoming a favorite shoe across Europe and Asia too.

In fact, to honour this particular shoe, the company recently released the 33 HI 2.0 which has some serious retro vibes of the original model.
