Rapper Fabolous and R&B singer Teyana Taylor each designed an exclusive pair of sneakers for the Packer Shoes x Ewing Athletics “Aloysius” 33 High “Fame & War” Pack which was released on March 26th, 2015.
Teyana’s all-gold “Fame” version of the Ewing Athletics classic 33 High shoe has many unique details which pay tribute to basketball superstar Patrick Ewing’s career.
The empire state building is featured on the tongue and insole to honor New York City, which is Teyana’s home as well as the city where the Jamaican-born Ewing spent most of his NBA career as the starting center for the New York Knicks. Ewing’s last name is featured prominently on the tongue and heel of each shoe. “NYC” and “33” — Ewing’s player number — are imprinted on the reversible ankle strap which can be worn on the front or back of the shoe.
The limited-edition sneakers were manufactured in men’s sizes 5-16 and retailed for $150.00 exclusively at Packer Shoes.
