Ewing Athletics, Packer Shoes, featured artists Fabolous and Teyana Taylor have collaborated to showcase their latest creation called “Fame And War.” Teyana Taylor is definitely no stranger to collaborations – her first joint venture was with footwear bigwig Adidas. The collaboration was such a success in revenue, a second collab was an expected no-brainer. Unfortunately, due to indiscretions in Teyana’s personal life, she was let go before she had the chance to duplicate that same success. Putting her personal life on the back-burner and taking into account her creative potential, Ewing Athletics has decided to take a chance on Ms. Teyana. Her creative ambition far outshines the controversy that continues to plague her – plus, getting the stamp of approval from Patrick Ewing himself will only garner more potential sales.
The first pair from this collaboration features a black leather upper with the Packer Shoes logo in the classic Ewing script on the upper. Gucci-like accents with gold details adorns the shoe; a first for this brand. Above is our first look at the Teyana Taylor x Packer Shoes x Ewing 33 Hi “Gold Medal.” This model appears to showcase a gold reflective along the translucent gum outsole – gold leather encompasses the entire upper – and the lace locks adds a personal touch that most New Yorkers can identify.The “NYC” letters and Ewing’s jersey number 33 are also showcased. No official release date has been announced, but Snkrbst will keep you updated as soon as we hear more details.
