Found September 20, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:

When he isn’t working with some of the best that NBA has to offer, Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon decided to help launch his own line of basketball shoes. The fine folks over at My Fox Houston have some of the more of the important details about the kicks: This Saturday, at his DR34M Mansion in the NASA area, Olajuwon will unveil the first basketball shoes from the DR34M brand. 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.” Olajuwon said it took two years before he was ready to launch his line of basketball shoes. ”It’s the beginning of something I’ve always wanted to do,” Olajuwon said. “This is the beginning of the realization of my dream.”  In case you are more visually-inclined, below is the entire news piece:
