This Saturday, March 30th, the reign of Patrick Ewing’s 33 Hi continues when they’re released in the United States. Stores nationwide like Atmos, UBIQ, and UNDFTD will carry the Knick legend’s signature shoe in the Georgetown University navy/gray color scheme and in white/black/green for the Jamaica release.
Both pairs go deeper into the heritage of Patrick Aloysius Ewing. Starting with his birthplace of Kingston, Jamaica, the 33 Hi has the country’s flag emblazoned on the heel. Fun Fact: Patrick Ewing was born on August 5th, 1962 just a day before Jamaica declared its independence from Britain. Another milestone in Ewing’s personal and professional life was attending Georgetown University, playing for the Hoyas all four years. The Georgetown colorway of the 33 Hi commemorates his great run, which also consisted of winning an NCAA title in the 1983-84 season against the University of Houston.
“Things weren’t going the way I thought they should be going at Adidas. They didn’t like the fact that I was hurt. I told them just buy me out and I’ll go my own ways. Roberto Mueller came to me with the idea to start my own company. I jumped on board, came out with an all-white shoe so everybody could forget the other people and move on, and it worked.”
