From McEnroe’s iconic silhouette to the Miu Miu and Thom Browne fashion shows. When Tennis-Core becomes the style of the moment.
The return of the Nike Mac Attack worn by John McEnroe marked the beginning of a new trend: the Tennis-Core. This iconic silhouette, originally released in 1984, stood out for its unconventional design with silver panels and darker shades of grey, breaking the mould of sneakers at the time. After the initial launch, the Nike Mac Attack was no longer made available to the public, but its return, thanks in part to a campaign featuring Travis Scott and John McEnroe, created a hype and growing interest around this model.
This collaboration with celebrities and prominent athletes, including LeBron James and Travis Scott, has helped renew interest in the Nike Mac Attack, making them highly anticipated by fans of the Beaverton-based brand. The ‘OG’ version of the trainer faithfully echoes the original design, with a mix of mesh and smooth leather in light grey colours, Navy Blue accents for the Swoosh and collar, and a tag on the tongue with a black and blue checkered pattern, complemented by the sportswear logo in red.
The focus on the Nike Mac Attack “OG” paved the way for the Tennis-Core trend, which is inspired by the elegance and aesthetics of tennis, but goes far beyond the sport. Tennis-Core focuses on sophistication, elegant materials and luxury accessories, evoking a style associated with the 1% and privilege that comes with an elite sport.
