patrick ewing at kith ewing 33 hi release Patrick Ewing @ Kith Ewing 33 Hi Release

The long awaited release of the Ewing 33 Hi is finally upon us, with the first two colorways of the sneaker making their way into some select spots in the NY/NJ area as of this morning. Of course we mentioned yesterday that the sneakers were set to drop at a staggered pace: 11am at Kith, 1pm at West and 4pm at Packer Shoes. Sure enough the schedule has coincided with that of Patrick Ewing himself, who has so far stopped by each for a meet and greet while this next wave of his sneaker legacy is launched for the public. Stay with us after the jump to check out eleven time NBA All-Star Patrick Ewing chilling with the eager sneaker fiends at Kith Manhattan and keep in mind you might still be able to spot him during the day if you’re out hunting for the Ewing 33 Hi.

Ewing 33 Hi 2012 Retro Releases

ewing 33 hi 2012 retro releases 1 Ewing 33 Hi 2012 Retro Releases

Patrick Ewing told the world that his Dream Team would win “10 out of 10″ against the reigning Olympic champions, but the cited size advantage is among the key reasons this Hall of Fame center’s sneakers haven’t aged like Barkley, Pippen or Jordan’s.  Historically, ‘big men’ shoes just haven’t sold as well as perimeter players’ (though to be fair, Ewing’s mid-’80s adidas Attitude and Conductors are still thriving), but just as the twentieth anniversary of the Dream Team and a still surging interest in kicks made for so many dope retros, the time is right for Ewing’s namesake brand to resurrect its most famous silhouette.  The Ewing Athletics 33 High returns with both the white and the red of the original 1990 colorways next Friday, August 31st (the blue and black have yet to get a release date), but with only six NY-area retailers getting limited numbers to start, will you be able to get in on this long-lusted bringback?

patrick ewing 50th birthday 3 Ewing Athletics Celebrates Patricks 50th Birthday

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!

Team USA Olympic Sneaker Showcase

team usa olympic basketball sneaker showcase Team USA Olympic Sneaker Showcase

The Olympic Games have served as a serviceable spotlight for athletic companies to show off their best products in each sport, and sometimes it can get quite ugly. Looking back to the ’92 Games when Nike and Reebok had their lengthy battle, it’s clear that companies were fighting for that medal podium spotlight. Here in 2012, Nike’s got the Olympics on lock, but that wasn’t the case before; along with Nike and Jordan, brands like adidas, Reebok, Converse (prior to the merger), and even Ewing  joined the Olympic-inspired sneaker festivities, and a sneaker event out in Hong Kong called Kickoff Summer Fun showcased some of the best in history (bet you’ll be surprised at some of what’s found below). Enjoy this throwback gallery of red, white, and blue sneakers and let us know which is your personal favorite! Photos: kenlu

Ewing Sneakers To Return

February 15th, 2012 by | 32 comments

patrick ewing 33 hangtag 1 Ewing Sneakers To Return

Big-men don’t sell shoes? That certainly wasn’t the trend in the early 90′s when towering forces ruled the paint. The shift in power in the half-court set experienced a severe shift to the backcourt when the NBA Center became a rarity around the post-Jordan retirement era, but this quick teaser of Patrick Ewing hangtags brings us back to the days of dominant seven-footers and the glory age of chunky high-tops. For those who can remember, Patrick Ewing had his own line of signature shoes under the Next Sports umbrella, spawning a thorough line of Ewing-branded kicks that gained considerable popularity while competing against the Nike Air Force and Etonic/LA Gear high-tops worn by competing sequoias like David Robinson and Hakeem Olajuwon. Does this cluster of Ewing ’33′ hangtag/keychains which were included back with the original releases hint at a possible return for some of these forgotten treasures? According to the EwingAthletics Twitter page that just popped up with this teaser pic and the message, “Ewing back”, it’s looking like that certainly may be the case. As always, keep it locked into to Sneaker News for all the latest developments on this intriguing notion of a “Ewing 33″ resurrection.

UPDATE:  The Ewing Twitter page has been updated with the good news we were all hoping for. Looks to be official – Ewing comeback: summer 2012!
