In 1997, Pete Sampras was just 26 years old and on top of the tennis world. His game had already earned him plenty of accolades, but none like the basketball-inspired Air Oscillate he received as a birthday gift from Nike. Matching his “slam dunk” overhead smash, Sampras laced up the 1 of 1 Air Oscillate for the rest of the 1997 season.
Now, nearly two decades later, the Sampras exclusive is celebrated with an Air Oscillate borrowing on-court cues. Familiar black and bright crimson hues compliment a safari-accented leather build, tying back to Sampras’ unmistakable 1997 player exclusive.
