Nike’s reputation in tennis leans towards design innovations. The Air Trainer 1 cross training shoe and the Air Tech Challenge, in particular, changed the concept of what a tennis silhouette could be.
If you favor a more traditional tennis silhouette over the beefed up mid and high-top models, not to worry; Nike has a true classic ready to go on that front.
The Nike Tennis Classic began its life as the Wimbledon. Volatile tennis legend John McEnroe wore this model during his 1981 victory at the iconic tennis tournament, hence the name. The shoe became one of the most sought after Nikes of its day, on both sides of the Atlantic, no mean feat during an era in which the brand was establishing itself, but not yet close to being a global juggernaut.
Name recognition aside, a good shoe is a good shoe, and the Tennis Classic is about as good as it gets.
