Yesterday, we reported that Ewing teased a collaboration with Big Pun’s family to celebrate his first album. Now, the Big Pun x Ewing 33 Hi ‘Capital Punishment’ has been unveiled.
Designed with the Rios family, the Big Pun x Ewing 33 Hi uses the color scheme from Pun’s debut album Capital Punishment. Originally released in 1998, it was the only album released during Big Pun’s lifetime (he died at just 28 years old of a heart attack) and was the first solo Latin hip hop record to go Platinum.
Over the past year, Ewing Athletics has partnered with veterans of rap like the Outlawz, Cormega, and Bun B to honor them with striking sneaker collaborations. This latest collab flaunts a bright yellow leather upper with red accents. “BIG PUN” hits the tongues for maximum effect, and the shoes ride atop marbled outsoles.
Release details are coming soon so stay tuned for updates. To celebrate the release of the Ewing 33 Hi ‘Capital Punishment’ a special event will be taking place at BX Sports, where Big Pun once shopped.
Last year, Premium Pete invited Liza and Star Rios onto The Premium Pete Show to talk about Big Pun’s life, fighting Fat Joe in court for what their family deserved, and what Pun was like in high school. You can check that episode out below.
