Team Ewing really dug deep for ideas on this Olympic-themed sneaker, mining their mind cavities in an effort to give the shoe some shine. An admission of gilt has been forced upon the Eclipse silhouette, as a reference to the gold medal won by the ’92 Dream Team – which featured Patrick Ewing. If you didn’t pick up on the message already, the words ‘gold medal’ have been embroidered across the heel for clarity. The blinding ball boots feature a number '6' tongue tag shout out, the number Ewing wore on his Olympic jersey, as opposed to the usual number 33.
You can scoop up a pair of the Ewing Athletics Eclipse ‘Gold Medal’ from July 29 through select stockists, including Rock City Kicks.
