Prelude to the warmer summer months is proven to be a elusive one this year. But it didn’t stop Nike Sportswear from rolling out their new Summer 2011 Collection. Part of the new Vintage Clay Pack, the Tennis Classic AC Premium Canvas harks back long before the “open era”, when tennis was played on one of only two surfaces, clay and grass. In supple weatherproof canvas, black or white, with matching Nike Swoosh in suede, a hint of reddish “clay” piping runs along the midsole, right above the vulcanized sole. To accentuate the design further, premium brown leather are added to the heel tab and tongue tag, along with a hidden “grass clay” cross logo imprinted on inside label. Scheduled for launch on Saturday, May 14th, at select Nike Sportswear retail locations, such as Nike Stadium on Bowery.
Release Date: May 14th, 2011 (Saturday)
