When we were kids we had one shoe for everything… PF Flyers.
Then Converse All Stars, also with canvas uppers. Basketball, baseball, football, tennis, badminton, everything.
Then the Jack Purcell, a "real" tennis shoe appeared. Cool for tennis and the street.

Way back then there was an ad in an old tennis mag with Borg wearing Tretorns. I wore them for years. They look like canvas bowling shoes. They would wear out in two weeks.

In contrast my Nike City Court V tennis shoes lasted almost 6 months on hard courts 3 to 4 times a week. Limousines for the feet.
