Patrick Ewing and Alife Team Up for the Rerelease of the Eclipse Sneaker
With the Rio Summer Olympics right around the corner, Ewing Athletics has decided to take sneakerheads down the memory lane with the upcoming release of the Eclipse "Olympic Pack." The sneakers, sported by NBA legend Patrick Ewing during the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics, have not seen a rerelease since the original pairs dropped more than 24 years ago.
Set to release in two colorways, the Eclipse "Olympic Pack" will be brought back by none other than Ewing and New York-based streetwear brand Alife. With one of the silhouettes dressed in a red, white and blue colorway, the shoes feature Patrick's Olympic jersey number from the 1992 Dream Team. Instead of his usual #33 on the back of the New York Knicks' jersey the shoes features a #6 on the tongue portion of the silhouette as well as a faux gold medal keychain just like the 1992 iteration. The second pair of this pack will release in another OG colorway of the shoe in black, red and navy.
Patrick's Olympic Eclipse model has never hit retail shelves again until now, and this Wednesday, July 20, at the Alife location in New York City, both shoes will be available for purchase for a suggested retail price of $120.
