Travis Scott X McEnroe

The creation of the Nike McEnroe

The relationship between John McEnroe and Nike began in the 1980s, when the player was still young and promising. At the time, McEnroe was looking for a brand that could support him in this buldding carrer. Nike, for its part , was looking for talented athletes to promote their brand of sports shoes. The partnership proved to be a perfect match. In 1984, Nike officially launched the Nike McEnroe tennis shoe. It was designed in close collaboration with McEnroe himself , talking into account his specific needs on the court. In addition, Nike is releasing a co;plete collection including shorts, t-shirt, jacquet, socks for McEnroe and of course the Nike McEnroe Light Smoke Grey. The Nike McEnroe was a lightweight shoe with a soft leather upper for better flexibility and fit. It featured an abrasion-resistant rubber outsole for excellent grip on playing surfaces.

A modern reissue

Nike recently unveiled a short video featuring Travis Scott and John McEnroe. This confirms the long-awaited collaboration. In the video, we find Travis wearing a pair of Cactus Jack X Nike shorts to the theme of his new album Utopia. We can therefore imagine a reissue of the Nike McEnroe, but also another pair in collaboration with Travis Scott. At the Miami Grand Prix, the spotlight was on Travvis Scott, who took to the stage wearing a pair of MacEnroe OGs with an inverted Swoosh. The shoe retains the features that made the McEnroe an iconic model, including its supple leather upper and recognizable silhouette. However, Travis Scott has added his personal touch with subtle modifications, such as vibrant colors and bolt accents, that reflect his distinct artistic aesthetic.
