Hakeem Olajuwon is widly regarded as the best center to ever hit the NBA. His post skills and moves were unrivaled, mostly because nobody ever saw a big man move with such grace and fluidity around the hoop. A few months back we got some exciting news that Etonic and Olajuwon had reunited to bring back his signature “Akeem the Dream” shoes, and now we have an official release date.
The “Akeem the Dream” was Olajuwon’s signature sneaker starting back in the early 80’s and came in colorways to represent his hometown Houston Rockets team. The shoe was apart of the first wave of signature shoes for athletes, so even if your not going to lace them up and hit the court, there’s a certain nostalgia factor that goes along with these.
Grab your pair of the Etonic “Akeem the Dream” beginning August 1, for a suggested retail of $100.
