Nike Sportswear Womens Racquette 3/4 Premium Sneakers

The Nike Racquette QS is a women’s tennis-inspired shoe based on one of Nike’s first performance tennis shoes launched in 1975, the “Racquette,” but now modernized with a higher design than its predecessor. The retro upper is built with a feminine appeal featuring a blucher toe construction to allow for a comfortable fit. The upper padding and reinforcement has been removed for this quick strike version, giving the shoe a comfortable and deconstructed look. An updated hobnail outsole design provides versatile traction for a variety of surfaces. This classic design harkening back to Nike’s early heritage in tennis is finished off with a sleek cup-sole construction featuring a phylon heel wedge for added cushioning. Minimalist design and superb comfort of the “Racquette” 3/4 Premium is made for the women who appreciates the retro aesthetic and comfort of the mid-seventies tennis shoe.
