Nike Court Royale Suede History
Nike first started churning out their tennis line in the 1970s and signed up the fiery Romanian Grand Slam winner Ilie Nastase as their first tennis brand endorser in 1972. John McEnroe, Andre Agassi, and Pete Sampras soon after followed as endorsers of the brand. Each would have a tennis line specifically created for them and would reflect their personalities, which ranged from irreverent to stoic.
Nike’s tennis line flourished and continued to evolve, thanks in part to their famous endorsers. The company’s tennis line numbered in the dozens. The tennis silhouette also gained a following from non-tennis players who simply liked the court style. In this regard, Nike brought out the Court Royale Suede. It is a lifestyle shoe with a retro look inspired by the court. The upper featured a combination of real and synthetic leather with a rubber outsole and deep flex grooves. The shoe came out in a variety of colorways as well as a suede version called the Nike Court Royale Suede.
