Hakeem Olajuwon has been mentioned a lot lately because of his efforts in training the NBA's best who want to dominate in the paint. In the meantime he has also been working on releasing his own line of shoes.
Called the "Dream Shake" brand, they will retail at $185. Dream had been working on the project for two years, and said it was important to him to make shoes that are comfortable and flexible. Plus he puts an emphasis on the shoes being fashionable, which is good because we don't want a repeat of the Etonics Hakeem rocked in the 90s.
The shoes, which will cost $185, are also the first from Olajuwon's 'Dream Shake' line of shoes.
"I'm very happy about it because for many years when I was playing I endorsed many shoe companies and I've always wanted to go from scratch, build my own brand," Olajuwon said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. "So I went to different sources, looking at the manufacturing, selecting the material, making sure you bring the best product to market.
"I'm very excited to unveil the first Dream Shake shoe." [...]
"It's really a basketball shoe, but when you put it with your jeans you're fashionable, so it solves both purposes."
