Having said that, I was gonna post the pic KB24 just posted, cuz I was sure AA wore those back in the day.
IMO, not necessarily what I would call a "proper version"... Perhaps it was an early test-prototype for him?
At the end of the day, it doesn't really change my opinion of them cuz it ultimately wasn't how I remembered them.
McEnroe wore them at least. The only reason I said that is because I wanted to quell everyone's rage about it. I mean I wasn't happy about it either, but this makes me a lot less upset about it. Honestly, I was copping regardless haha. I was just glad Nike was nice enough to retro them.
Also I know it is easy to hate on Nike, but maybe they had some legitimate reason for doing this? IF they were putting the ATC III outsole on them for the professional players, that must have meant there was some advantage to those soles that the regular ones did not offer. That's just my two cents.
