Etonic The Dream 1

08/18/2014

Etonic and Akeem "The Dream" Olajuwon are back. Akeem (later known as Hakeem) is one of the greatest big men the NBA has ever seen. The Nigerian-born center was selected first by the Houston Rockets in the 1984 NBA Draft (before Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley) and his storied career included two NBA Championships, two Finals MVP trophies, 12 NBA All-Star selections, and NBA Most Valuable Player honors in 1994. Michael Jordan once said, "If I had to pick a center [for an all-time best team], I would take Olajuwon."

The Etonic The Dream 1 is Akeem's first signature sneaker and was originally released in 1984. This is the first time Etonic has re-released this iconic basketball sneaker and the design remains true to the original, including the box. They feature a leather upper, Houston Rockets-inspired colorway, and signature wraparound lace detail. The Dream 1 is truly an iconic and legendary basketball sneaker that many have been waiting to get their hands on.
