At a time when athletes were just starting to receive their own signature models from shoe companies, Patrick Ewing founded his own footwear imprint in 'Ewing Athletics.' Founded in his fourth pro season 1989, Ewing Athletics had released numerous models the through the early 90's including basketball shoes, cross trainers, running shoes and even hiking boots. The apparel line grew as well, from the tees and tanks to all types of clothing including leather jackets. Patrick wore the shoe during his 1990 season and enjoyed his best season as a pro, averaging 28.6 points a game, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks. Producing their last model in 1996, Ewing Athletics footwear had become a favorite on the vintage market, sparking a reintroduction of the line for 2012.
