Unlike a sport such as basketball, which is always played on the hardwood (at the professional level anyway), tennis employs some distinctly different playing surfaces. Nike and size? are celebrating that fact with four colorways of the Tennic Classic AC, coming in Jade Green, Rust Orange, Pure White, and Dark Navy.
The 'Court Surfaces' Pack features crocodile-embossed canvas uppers, with waxed laces, tonal stitching and eyelets, and either white or bone midsoles. And the only branding you'll see is the small, triangular tennis logo on the tongue and insole. The pack, an early contender for our year-end Most Slept-On list, launches Friday 4th July online at 8.00am BST and will be available through Facebook and Twitter links. And if you're in the UK, you can grab them on the say day at all size? stores. They retail for £65 and will be available in UK sizes 6 – 12.
