Fabolous & Teyana Taylor Release The “Fame & War” Ewing 33 Highs

Written by Nigel D. / 03.27.15

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. Officially renamed and inspired by the original meaning of Ewing’s own middle name the shoe is 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.

Each pair of the black/OG “Aloysius” 33 High come packaged in a custom made black shoebox featuring the “Ewing Defence Regiment” and “Packer Shoes” Ewing-script logo with “OG” medal of honor ribbon printed wrapping paper. Printed on the underside of the top box lid we find the official presentation of this medal of honor to “Center Patrick Aloysius Ewing – Proudly Served”. Adding a final “style code” to the design details, are the “718” custom color coding for this particular pair which serves as an ode to Fabolous hometown of Brooklyn, NY which him and “The Family” defend to the fullest.

The gold/black “Aloysius” 33 High by Packer Shoes & Teyana Taylor celebrates the “fame” of being an professional athlete and all the success attraction that came with being under the bright lights of the Empire State during the golden era of the 1990’s when the 33 High was reigned supreme on the streets and courts of NYC. Also constructed using the highest quality luxurious full grain leather hides ever used by the factory, the entire upper features a metallic gold treatment. The main design cue comes in the form of custom “Ewing Empire” logo on the tongue which signifies the iconic status held by Patrick in NYC.

Fabolous & Teyana Taylor help designed the “Fame And War” collection for Ewing Athletics. Check out photos from the launch in NYC.
