In an exciting announcement made back in March, Nikedisclosed its plans to revive one of its iconic silhouettes this year: John McEnroe’s Mac Attack, generating a huge buzz of anticipation among sneaker enthusiasts. The original “Light Smoke Grey” colorway made its appearance, followed by a series of collaborative teasers.
Building upon the growing anticipation, Nike recently unveiled a short video featuring Travis Scott and John McEnroe. This captivating footage confirmed that the Mac Attack’s design is making a comeback and will be available soon. The campaign imagery opens with Scott, accompanied by his Utopia briefcase, standing alongside McEnroe, both proudly sporting the aforementioned OG Mac Attack look. The visual narrative then transitions to Scott showcasing his skills, preparing for a powerful backhand stroke while dressed in Utopia-themed Cactus Jack x Nike shorts. The fusion of style and athleticism displayed in the video further ignites the excitement surrounding the imminent return of the Mac Attack.
The initial tease came from PJ Tucker, who took to social media to reveal that Social Status had meticulously prepared four tear-away variations of the Mac Attack. This revelation left fans intrigued about the unique design elements incorporated into these versions. Later, during the Miami Grand Prix, the spotlight shifted to Travis Scott as he graced the stage donning a pair of the OG Mac Attacks featuring a reverse Swoosh. Speculation quickly arose, questioning whether this particular pair would be released to the public or if it was exclusively created for Travis Scott’s inner circle.
Mark your calendars, as the official launch of the campaign is expected to take place later this month. Sneaker enthusiasts and fans of the Mac Attack silhouette eagerly await its arrival, and according to rumors, the Nike Mac Attack OG colorway will hit the shelves on June 23. Nike’s website and select retailers are likely to be among the outlets offering this highly anticipated release. With the revival of this legendary silhouette, Nike once again demonstrates its commitment to honoring iconic designs and captivating the hearts of sneaker aficionados worldwide.
