Gucci Tennis 1977: Casually luxurious sneaker

Gucci's creative director Allesandro Michele pulled a classic tennis model from the archives and reimagined it as a modern casual sneaker. He reinterpreted the classic tennis silhouette and added a contemporary spirit that was inspired by neoclassical philosophy.

The Gucci Tennis 1977 sneaker is one of Gucci's must-haves for the summer months. Constructed without using any animal products, this kick suits users who prefer Vegan kicks. It has a slim profile made of canvas upper, resting on a flexible and lightweight vulcanized midsole. Found underneath is the rubber outsole that has the unique Gucci logo pattern.

Gucci Off the Grid sneaker: Gucci Tennis 1977's eco-friendly alternative

If you love the style of Gucci Tennis 1977 and want to help lessen the waste, the Gucci Off the Grid sneaker is the perfect match for you. 

For the untrained eyes, the Gucci Tennis 1977 and the Gucci Off the Grid look virtually identical as they both display a slim profile with GG branding on the rubber toe and wave pattern on the midsole. But scrutinizing closer, these sneakers differ on the materials used. The Off the Grid is an eco-friendly iteration as it is made with recycled materials. It is part of Gucci's collection that aims to lessen the carbon footprint by producing iterations made with sustainable materials.
