Felicia “Snoop” Pearson from “The Wire” is getting her own Ewing signature sneaker
True to her roots, the shoe honors Baltimore with a black, red, and yellow color scheme, a nod to the Maryland flag. This Ewing 33 Hi, one of Patrick Ewing’s most famous sneaker models, features several unique details like the outsole, which fades from black to yellow, and the unique logo at the tongue.
“It was an organic thing like most of our projects,” David Goldberg, President of Ewing Athletics told WearTesters. “She is from Baltimore, one of our biggest markets, but lives in the NYC area now so it made sense considering we had done the Big G one previously.”
Goldberg designed the shoe himself, but Pearson was very involved. She wanted it to reflect the Maryland flag, and David made the red a bit darker to match the Washington Redskins colors.
The Snoop x Ewing 33 Hi releases on May 24 for $140 at EwingAthletics.com and Shoe City locations.
