Say goodbye to the sneakers of your past – unless those sneakers happen to be a retro tennis pair from Gucci.
While brainstorming new accessories lines for its Cruise 2020 collection, Gucci’s creative director dove into the brand’s archives to reimagine pieces from its history, ultimately unveiling The Gucci Tennis 1977 sneaker – which is now making an exclusive appearance here at the best mall in Miami.
This blast-from-the-past approach was inspired by a Neoclassical philosophy, which follows the act of intentionally imitating an antique example. The new sneaker is a reimagined version of the brand’s original retro tennis style, which would have surely been spotted on jet setting tennis players from Florida to the French Riviera. Taking into consideration today’s likely wearer, the sporty sneaker gets an exotic, big-city upgrade via an eclectic, low-top style crafted in canvas combinations and prints. It’s completed with a rubber sole outlined with the House Web stripe in either green-red-green or blue-red-blue on the sides.
The Gucci Tennis 1977 is available in seven styles and a variety of designs, combining elements from the House’s heritage with a Gucci Tennis 1977 label that sits on the insole and tongue: a textured GG motif on the bumper and outsole.
Three sneakers are available in different solid colors: black for men, turquoise for men, and butter for men and women. Each pair features distressed tweed fabric with trim for a vintage feel. Three additional styles include prints in cotton fabric, each featuring the GG motif. The fourth print option, available for both men and women, is a Mickey Mouse design that sits on a brown cotton base with a mini GG motif, and a white and green trim.
Take it from the Aventura Mall team: The Gucci Tennis 1977 is the ideal summer shoe, with just the right amount of sporty style.
Gucci is located on the lower level near Nordstrom.
