Ewing Athletics Re-Releases its Claim to Fame From the 90s

Ewing Athletics is back in full force with a classic 90s revival—the Ewing ‘Guard’ basketball sneakers. Specifically engineered for point guard basketball athletes, the sneaker has also been known for its popularity amongst casual wearers.

The Guard Mid is the third in the Ewing Atheltics re-release that began last year. The sneakers originally ran a three-year span in the early 1990s, and with the recent demand for retro sneakers, they have been brought back to life—an ode to basketball legend Patrick Ewing. The kicks are offered in two colorways: ‘mustard’ and ‘prince blue’.

The retro release is nearly identical to its original model: suede and leather uppers, 3/4 ankle cuts and the trademark “33” logo on the back heel. The Ewing 33 Hi dropped last year and was a sell-out immediately. Expect these to fly off the shelves too. Grab your pair in October. Stats for 90s Throwback Footwear Trending: Older & Buzzing
