In the 1994 NBA Finals, Patrick Ewing and the New York Knicks took a debilitating blow from the Houston Rockets in a seven-game series, but UGK member emeritus Bun B still has love for the Hall of Fame center’s sense of style on the court.
Which is why he and his YouGottaEatThis.com partner, Premium Pete, are collaborating on a new Ewing 33 HI’s upper salmon colorway. The longtime sneakerhead favorite is inspired by the YGET duo’s admiration for sushi.
“This shoe is a product of our combined passions. Our love of sneakers and our love of food, and how both bring people together,” The Bun exclusively tells HipHopDX of the $140.00 kicks.
And not for nothing, the features are just as exquisite as the artistic food itself. The strap tab is inspired by wooden chopsticks whereas the green wasabi sock liner sits on a white rice inspired outsole. To cap it off, the YGET logo sits neatly embossed on the tongue.
The YouGottaEatThis x Ewing 33 HI’s will be rolled out this Sunday, December 3, at the Htown Sneaker Summit in Houston, TX. An online release at ewingathletics.com and other select stores will commence come the start of 2018.
Fans in the H-Town area looking to attend the event can GPS 9401 Knight Rd Houston, TX 77045.
The action goes down from 3 – 8 p.m.
