Growing up there was no bigger New York/ Patrick Ewing fanatic that I knew than my man Jerry. So naturally when this model dropped he had to have them. We both got them as a surprise Christmas gift from a close friend of the family, and I believe we were the only two in town with the all blue joints. When the Christmas break was over and it was time to stunt back in school, "Where did you get those?" was a question that got asked 1000x that day and of course I had the mini basketball and chain dangling. Easily one of my favorite shoes ever.
