Makes me long for the days of the Air Trainer 1 worn by John McEnroe
“When John McEnroe saw a pair of sample sneakers that had a Velcro strap on the forefoot instead of the typical ankle placement, he got curious. Peter Moore agreed to give McEnroe the shoes with explicit instructions to not play tennis in them.
