It’s been a while since I focused my attention on this Classic Kicks blog. If you aren’t following or at least checking out MY TUMBLR, that’s where I have been focusing most of my sneaker nostalgia lately.
I’m in the process of improving this site and hopefully creating an archive that will incorporate what I love about Tumblr into a more functional Classic Kicks Website.
That being said, let’s get to this tennis article here. This is my first full-length (12 page!) feature for Sneaker Freaker Magazine. I typically don’t give out too much information with the images I post on the blog every day, so here’s a little treat for those of you who like this sort of stuff.
I took a shot at explaining what was so important about tennis fashion in the late 80′s and early 90′s. I also dug into the vaults and curated a small collection of classic advertisements demonstrating the great style and attitude of the period with the help of some of our favorite players from Tennis’ golden age.
Thanks for reading and I’ll keep you posted because there’s more to come.
