I have in the past used cross-trainers - and indeed so did many pros - but the trend in trainers in recent years, especially Nike, has been shifting them towards the running shoe side of fence - much lighter and flimsier than tennis shoes. I imagine this is because so many people use them primarily as casual shoes and the last decade's growth in gym use as opposed to outdoor training.
A really popular Nike tennis shoe in the late 80s worn by McEnroe and Agassi was the Air Trainer 1.
Whose autograph is that? And I never saw those with mesh uppers, only leather.
