After its initial return in the summer of 2014, Etonic is ready to bring back The Dream 1 for another round.

Originally worn by Hakeem (known then as Akeem) Olajuwon throughout the 1984-85 NBA season, the Dream 1 is returning in two OG colorways. Both pairs sport full leather uppers, one red-based and the other black-based. White accents along with 'Akeem The Dream' branding on the tongue tag and hang tags finish each of these retros off. To go along with the use of original materials and construction, each pair comes in retro-style packaging, identical to the boxes used over thirty years ago.

Both colorways of The Dream 1 will be available at as well as select Etonic retailers on Friday, April 24 for $120 each.
