Default BREAKING: Patrick Ewing making a comeback....

.....in his sales of sneakers!!!!

Patrick Ewing is readying for a comeback -- or at least his shoes are.

The former New York Knicks center is relaunching his shoe company, Ewing Athletics, later this week.

The brand will hit retail stores in New York on Friday and subsequently roll out in 33 stores nationwide before hitting Europe for the holiday season.

The first shoes that will hit stores are dubbed the "33 Hi Retro." Ewing's name and signature are on the tongue, heel and side and a "33" keychain comes attached to the shoe. The shoes come in a box with an older picture of Ewing in the blue and white of Georgetown, where he led the Hoyas to a national title in 1984.

The shoes will retail for $100.

"I think it's the right price point for what we're trying to do," Ewing said.




You can only wear these sneakers if you have a flat top!!!

I had a pair of Patrick Ewing sneakers back in 1992.

They were (and, apparently, still are) ghetto as hell.

I had his first shoes in black and those were one pair of comfortable sneakers.

If I wore these, would people be more ok with my feet shuffling on post moves?

I love Ewing, he was my favorite, and I owned a pair back in the day, BUT NO WAY is anyone dropping $100 on a players name they never saw play.

Exactly.

They spend that money on "special re-releases" because a bunch of 15 year olds, who were still in a stroller when MJ retired for the 2nd time in 98, want to have a new re-released version of Jordans as a collectors item.

Thats why I respect the folks who have the originals when they were released back in the 90's.

The Ewings will sell if these are a "1 time" thing and they wont be releasing newer shoes.
