Anwan Glover, perhaps best known as Slim Charles from HBO’s The Wire, is a musician, actor, model, and radio host. His latest sneaker collaboration, an Ewing Eclipse that pays homage to D.C., has been unveiled.
This latest Anwan Glover x DTLR x Ewing Eclipse follows the successful release of Glover’s first collaboration with Ewing Athletics in 2016. The new shoe is done up almost entirely in reflective materials and rides atop icy blue outsoles that feature “BIG” graphics.
Anwan Glover, a D.C. native, is about as multi-talented as one can get; he’s the founding member of Washington D.C.-based go-go band BackYard Band (BYB) — which has released four studio albums — he’s acted in HBO’s The Deuce, The Wire, and Fox’s Scream Queens, and been in movies like 12 Years a Slave and Divided City.
Glover has also appeared in music videos like Boyz n da Hood’s “Dem Boyz” and Wale’s “Chillin.” He even hosts a nightly radio show on 93.9 WKYS-FM radio as Big G in the Washington metropolitan area, according to Wikipedia.
The Anwan Glover x DTLR x Ewing Eclipse will release exclusively in the D.C. area at DTLR stores on May 4. Pricing information has not been announced, but expect the shoes to retail for around $120 and release in very limited numbers.
Due to overwhelming demand for the sneaker, DTLR will be hosting a pre-release party on Thursday, May 3, where 88 pairs will be sold. Those pairs will come with the exclusive Big G x Ewing Sock, a BackYard Band CD, and an autographed card.
