Tennis Identity

When a tennis shoe is not a tennis shoe.

Comme de Garcons has just released this hot little "tennis shoe," CDG designer Rei Kawakubo's collaboration with Bata Tennis. No, they're not really for tennis, but they've got roots in our game.  Bata Tennis made some of the world's very first tennis shoes back on the late 1800s. Here's a little history.

Hard to believe people actually played in styles like this. Cute, but these are fashion and fashion only.
