The Patrick Ewing team surprises us again this weekend with not one or two but three releases. Revamping the classic 33 HI with a white leather upper and white embroidery and beautiful gum sole sneaker enthusiasts are sure to love and appreciate. Following with the Guard silhoutte which utilizes the sole of the 33 HI but offers a more casual look with its mid cut, offered in a smooth blue/orange color way (reminiscent of the New York Knicks) and a street style homage with the mustard/black color way. I’m thinking about coppin’ the Ewing 33 HI, which of the three is your pick for the weekend?

 Keep watch for the release this saturday at Rime East and Rime Brooklyn Saturday, October 5th.
