Gucci Tennis Back!

After making an appearance on our illustrious list of "The 25 Greatest Fashion Sneakers Of All Time" for its seminal role in sneaker history, the Gucci Tennis has returned for its 30th anniversary. To be honest, the shoe has not aged well and looks pretty much like a shoe that would be worn by a tasteless, albeit rich, grandfather. I mean, it's not like that's ever stopped anyone before. According to the older sneakerheads in our office, these have a reputation as the go-to kicks of New York City drug dealers, given their high-fashion name and luxurious price tag. What's the equivalent of these today? Probably, like, Givenchy hi-tops? Yeah, totally gross. Head over to Gucci's online store now if you feel like being ignorant.

      The hell you think those styles were based off of…

        My comment wasn’t about the originator of the style, but that the style of shoe is trash.

    I wear these & how ironic that I became a grandfather last year!
