Adidas Torsion Edberg Comp

Hey Vollaix, how about some of those Edberg shirt designs in a polyester material ??
Not the first time people have asked. Love the old design with the McDonald’s colors from 88:


Helas combined with adidas to do a line with them a couple of years ago. It was decent bc the colors were good and it was a thick poly, but with long sleeves. They went on clearance for $10. I had a tailor cut the sleeves to make them short for an extra $10:


I made a mock-up this past spring and ran it by a few people, but it seemed “too obscure” (aren’t they all?!) and it got voted down:

Would love to do edberg 1990 Wimbledon someday:

Yes that looks fantastic !! I was hoping Adidas would do something when he got inducted into the HOF.

Great colors atatu
Loved the Edberg kit when he won Wimbledon in 88. I think it was 88.
I remember having the vest but have no clue what happened to it.

I thought that you have an appreciation for the old designs? When one refers to a design inspired from Miro's work as "the McDonald's colours" I am sad about the state of things. Please, pay respect to what you use to produce your stuff.

:cool:
What is your favorite painting by Miro?
Mine is May 1968
Adidas should bring the Edberg line back again. Beautiful colors used in that line.

oh yeah!!! I remember getting those comps when I was (15?) ...at a Don Sherwoods in southern california. I had the yellow/purple/green ones and would just stare at them all day.

the light blue "road map" shirt was one of my favorites, but I think I had my dad buy more iL stuff for me.

I had those green Edbergs years ago.. along with the red/yellow/green SE shirt. Great design. Wanted the Lendl Comps too, but had very little money at the time so I opted for the Air Trainer 1 instead. Superb shoe.

Air Trainer 1 definitely a true classic.
They were my go to shoes for tennis for a bit.
But horrible sole for the hard courts. Wore out quickly. Since they were meant for cross training.
I went through 5 pairs in one year.
But another classic I used was the Nike Court Challenge Mid (See below the Trainer), released in 1984.
I believe was released again in 2012
