The Ewing Athletics line is one dominated by the blue and orange of the New York Knicks, a notion that should come as a surprise to no one given that Pat himself was definitely one of the greatest to ever call the Garden his home. With that being said, the company was never afraid to stray from the equation, knowing full well that they needed to get the sneakers on the feet of folks who weren’t necessarily rooting for the Knicks. As a result, you had a pretty wide array of colors hitting on the Ewing Athletics releases both then and now, as proven by old catalog scans and whatever other images of the originals have been floating around over the last two decades.

The forthcoming black and red Ewing Focus reissue is one that will remain reasonably true to its original. Yes, it is an original colorway – as the Ewing Athletics group recognized back then that such a colorup would likely be a good look in an NBA era of Bulls dominance (Keep in mind that Pat sported the home and away “Knicks” versions during the 1992-93 season). Shown here is the 2013 Ewing Focus retro in black/red alongside the counterpart OG version, with the only substantial difference between the two being the logo coloring on the tongue. Continue reading to see the comparison images, as well as an old-school catalog look, and watch for this particular Ewing Focus colorway in stores come June 29th.

I think the slight silhouette change to the front of the collar and the larger heel pad lend to a more modern look. They look less "chunky" than the o.g.'s over all. The slight change in cut on the toebox probably lends more to the new material than it does a design change. I wonder if they'll crease better? Can't wait for the home ny's to drop.

Toebox looks like crap on the new release

@five_virtus not disagreeing at all but i think they did it to make it more of a lifestyle shoe and less of a basketball shoe
