Last Friday, three high profile NY area shops raised the ante for the eagerly anticipated Ewing 33 Hi comeback by hosting Patrick Ewing in-store for the retro launch. In addition to Kith and West, we’ve gotta give a special tip of the hat to Packer Shoes, one of the few retailers that have been in business long enough to have actually stocked the original go-round of Ewing footwear. Along with the first two colorways available for purchase, Packer Shoes was decked out in Knicks regalia, from shirts to jerseys to fitteds, with one dedicated attendee even upping the bar with his Ewing haircut paying homage to the brand and man of the hour. Click through for the full photo recap from the Packer Shoes x Ewing Athletics launch event and stay tuned to Sneaker News for word on when and where the Ewing 33 Hi will become more widely available coming soon.
