It's 2010 and you payin' Patrick Ewing.....last time I paid that number I was wearin Patrick Ewing's - Jeezy



Eastbay was kinda like the original Hypebeast if you will, the sneaker source before the internet. In the 90's there were no blogs or websites to go on and see the newest kicks coming out, either you had a friend working at Foot Locker with inside info or you waited for the Eastbay catalog to come in the mail. I remember flipping threw them for hours just circling all the sneakers I wanted and leaving where my parents would see, hoping they would get the hint. I actually kept a lot of them through the years (along with my Playboy's) but threw them out when I moved out of my parents after highschool. I still have about 12 deadstock pairs of Ewing's in stock and one of them is the Navy Boomer Mid's in the lower right corner. Above is the actual Catalog from 1993 featuring 9 different styles of the all mighty Ewing's......which pair did you have, or want???
