Coming off acclaimed collabs with Grillo’s Pickles and sneaker artist Mache, among others, another remixed Ewing Athletics classic sneaker is coming soon.
The latest collaboration is a reworked iteration of the Sport Lite silhouette, courtesy of Bronx, N.Y.-based streetwear standout Famous Nobodys. The label was co-founded by Christian Vasquez, the brother-in-law of NBA star Carmelo Anthony. (The baller collaborated with Famous Nobodys as part of his debut “Melo Made” capsule collection in September.)
The new take on Ewing Athletics’ mid-cut heritage cross-training shoe, which first hit the market in 1993, is executed with tan soft suede uppers, classic gum outsoles and eye-catching hits of fuchsia. The tongues boast both Ewing Athletics and Famous Nobodys branding and the words “Famous” and “Nobodys” appear on the left and right heels, respectively.
“Since 2015, our brand has been steadily building toward greatness. With the release of our newest collaboration with [NBA icon] Patrick Ewing’s sneaker brand that greatness has reached a pinnacle in our history,” Vazquez said in a statement.
The Famous Nobodys x Ewing Sport Lite arrives July 31 and comes with a $130 price tag. The limited-edition sneakers will be available via EwingAthletics.com and at the Famous Nobodys flagship store in the Bronx.
