Patrick Ewing has officially reached his golden years as the former NBA great and New York Knicks center celebrated his 50th Birthday yesterday. The timing’s perfect as we are all anticipating a return of the Ewing Athletics line of sneakers, which is slated for a release later this month. Ewing’s decision to bring his signature brand back could not have come at a more opportune time with Retro basketball sneakers at an all-time high and the demand for vintage pieces like the Ewing growing by the day. Yesterday, Ewing Athletics, Patrick’s fans and some notable sneaker figureheads like Fat Joe, Chi McBride (from his pal p_e_gee), and DJ Clark Kent, gave birthday shout-outs to Mr. Ewing himself with the latter trio showing off the Ewing logo tees that were also given away to a few Twitter followers yesterday. We can only wait patiently for the official return in stores, starting with the Ewing 33 Hi, so for now check out the shirts and send out a birthday shout-out of your own to @EwingAthletics!
