Back in the early 90's, basketball shoes were considerably bulkier and higher cut then what we generally see today. Most of this is equated to the big men of the league who dominated the 90's and needed shoes to support their massive frames such as Patrick Ewing, Shaq, and of course Hakeem Olajuwon. There's been a resurgence of these classic signature models lately, and today we get a detailed look at Etonic's "Akeem The Dream" OG.

Repping the Houston Rocket's colors, the Etonic "Akeem The Dream" is done in a white base with red and yellow accents. To give Hakeem his own personal touch, Etonic placed the “Akeem the Dream” detailing in script along the tongue, and features the classic hang tag keeping the old school vibe. Now we wouldn't recommend lacing these up to go out on the hardwood, as many of the tech features stay true to the original and don't offer much in the way performance, but they should do the trick if you want to practice the iconic Hakeem up and under.

The Etonic "Akeem The Dream" OG will be available at Packer Shoes and other select retail locations beginning August 1.
