Fabolous’ Packer Shoes x Ewing Athletics 33 Hi “Fame And War” Pack Release

Fabolous and Teyana Taylor linked up with Packer Shoes and Ewing Athletics for the Ewing 33 Hi “Fame And War” pack. Each artist helped designed a shoe with Fabolous going with a black, green and red design while Teyana Taylor went for the gold look. The line was wrapped around the corner at SOBs at the NYC release. Check the video above and photos below.

The black/”OG” edition of the “Aloysius” 33 High by Packer Shoes & Fabolous was designed to serve as a medal of honor for all of the bravery Patrick has displayed on the court and his formidable defense. Constructed using the highest quality luxurious full grain leather hides ever used by the factory, the main design cue comes in the form of custom “Ewing Defence Regiment” crest logo on the tongue which is a direct reference from the Jamaica Defence Force – the combined military force of Patrick’s native land. Staying true to it’s inspiration, the logo contains the original British variant spelling of “defense” with a “c” which correlates to Jamaica’s origins as a British colony.

Additional features include a custom fine woven Chinese Red and Ponderosa Pine Green ankle strap which references the ribbon of the JDF ‘Medal of Honour & Gallantry’. These color accents are continued on the gold tipped shoe laces (alternate white with gold tip laces are provided for customization). Gold accents also adorn the redesigned satin inner lining and the custom metal plated ankle strap buckle and custom “NYC” & “33” ankle plates which represent Patrick’s retired number 33 as member of the Knicks and the city which he represented to the fullest. Hidden inside are custom “Empire State” sublimated insoles which represent the spirit and ‘soul’ of being a true New York icon. Balancing out the design we implemented a stark white outsole with Chinese Red coated midsole for contrast with the classic gum rubber ‘Ewing” basketball on the bottom of the outsole.
