Early adidas USA advertisements in 1971 issues of World Tennis showed the line-up at the time, sans Stan Smith:

-'Wimbledon' (co-branded with Wilhelm Bungert's name). Looked like an early version of the shell-toe Superstar
-'John Newcombe', probably Newk's 1st signature shoe. An earlier design that wasn't the gold striped 'Forest Hills'
-'Rod Laver', early design that wasn't yet the Rod Laver shoe we know today.
