Ewing Athletics is effectively telling Patrick Ewing's story one colorway at a time and the next chapter tackles his NBA draft. One thing is for certain: a history lesson has never looked as good as it does being taught on a fresh silhouette.

The Ewing 33 Hi serves as the base and it's given a white leather upper to represent the envelopes that the NBA uses to announce their picks. The sneaker is peppered with blue and red accents that culminate in an embroidered "1985" splashed across the heel. A clean ice blue outsole is the perfect finish for this supremely clean take on Ewing's entry into the league.

Rumor has it that the lottery that sent Ewing to the Knicks was actually rigged by David Stern, which makes this pair even more special. Unfortunately, there is no rumor regarding the Ewing 33 Hi release date. We'll keep you informed as soon it's announced.
