50 greatest tennis shoes Complexs The 50 Greatest Tennis Sneakers of All Time

There’s a reason why sneakers are generally referred to as ‘tennis shoes’. Tennis-specific kicks were a ubiquitous species especially the 1980s, when several brands were serving up shoes for the tennis-enthusiast, so this list of 50 Greatest Tennis Sneakers of All Time put together by Adam ‘Air Rev’ Leaventon for Complex is as much of a history lesson on sneakers as it is an overview of brands not named Nike, adidas, and Reebok. We’ll spoil it for you and let you know that the Air Trainer 1 was crowned the top of the list, but check out some of the rare pieces below and let us know if any of these old-school models nudge your memory at all!

25 best air trainer 1s Complexs The 25 Best Nike Air Trainer 1s of All Time

In celebration of the re-release of the original ‘Chlorophyll’ colorway of the Nike Air Trainer 1, it’s about time we look back at 25 years of the model, no? Air Trainer 1s were few and far in-between over the last few years, but the model wasn’t entirely absent thanks to the many Retro releases in the early-2000′s. A bunch of GRs sprinkled with some nicely designed models like the ‘Shima’ Pack and the ‘Safari’ sprouted during the first few years of the new millenium, and Complex just included a bunch of them in their list of 25 best AT1s. Which is your favorite Air Trainer 1 of all-time? We’d like to hear.

Of all the sneakers to be excited about in 2012, the OG colorway of the Air Trainer 1 might stand on an island of its own. This model hasn’t seen much of the spotlight over the last few years with the exception of a Euro exclusive here and there, but Nike certainly hasn’t been shy about the releases this year, with it being the 25th Anniversary and all. Starting off on a high note with the ‘Safari’ a few months back, Nike keeps up the pace and hits us with the Chlorophyll for yet another Retro release. These will be at Nike Sportswear retailers next weekend release date, but these also just popped up at Packer Shoes right now so let us know if you plan on copping these once the official release date arrives.

Nike Air Trainer 1 “Chlorophyll” – Arriving at Retailers

A notorious scholar and heir to a massive hotel fortune famously claimed that the stuff responsible for plants turning solar radiation into energy for life wasn’t all that interesting.  This critical point in Billy Madison’s maturity where the titular protagonist realizes the folly of his scattered focus isn’t all that different from a revolution in athletic training that turned on the lightbulb for millions in the 1980s.  The ‘Chlorophyll’ Nike Air Trainer 1 brings us back to the genesis of cross-training, and there’s even a bit of the mouthy everyman we loved in Happy Gilmore with memories of a scrappy John McEnroe tossing his racquet in protest with the ease of Bo Jackson power cleaning multiple plates.   So no, definitely not ‘borophyll’ and in fact one of the game-changing releases we’ll always remember as grown-ups, this OG Air Trainer 1 is slated to arrive at Nike Sportswear retailers like Rock City Kicks‘ Fayetteville outpost next Saturday, October 20th.

Nike: Outside The Box by Joel Colley

A recent ‘list’ pointing out the ten ‘rules’ of sneakerheadism suggested we throw out our shoeboxes. This following artwork, put together by Portland-based artist Joel Colley (who also worked on the ParaNormans) for the Nike Graphic Studio Art Show this Saturday, is a collective piece of the Nike shoeboxes in the brand’s history that suggests box-stockpiling isn’t a bad idea. Today, we’re given the option of brown and orange with a few extras bearing the Nike Skateboarding or LeBron/Kobe name, but part of Nike’s amazing history is actually in these sick shoebox designs – most of which we’ve shown you before in our vintage Nike shoebox feature last August. There are certain pieces in here that’ll induce the “oh yeah, I remember that!” and the “what the, when did this happen?” so check out this sick piece by Colley after the jump and let us know which your favorite Nike shoebox is!
