Although the New York Knicks haven’t had much to celebrate in recent years, the team has been a part of some of basketball’s biggest moments. And with its next release, Ewing Athletics is celebrating a defining memory of the ’90s known affectionately by fans as The Dunk.
Team legend has it that John Starks threw down a monster dunk over Chicago Bulls center Bill Cartwright during Game 2 of the 1993 NBA Eastern Conference Finals, a game the Knicks would win 96–91. Teammate Patrick Ewing — wearing the Ewing Athletics Focus sneaker — set a pick allowing Starks to get to the rim.
On Wednesday, the brand will deliver a new-look Focus, a primarily black sneaker with orange and blue details. The heels feature both Starks’ jersey number (3) and his last name. The model was reimagined by New York Knicks superfan and podcast host Anthony Donahue.
The Ewing Athletics Focus “The Dunk” will retail for $140 and be sold via Ewingathletics.com.
