5. adidas Rivalry (Ewings) (1986)
Cambridge, MA’s Patrick Ewing left Georgetown and was drafted by the Knicks. He signed a sneaker deal with Adidas and released the only sneaker bearing Knicks colors to be popular in Boston, the adidas Rivalry’s (AKA The Ewings). They couldn’t stay in stock at Crystal’s, Alpha & Omega or Harry The Greek’s in Boston (where adidas head would travel from all over the world to cop their kicks). They were equally popular nationwide amongst Adidas heads.
