The Nike Mac Attack “OG” Returns in 2023
John McEnroe’s signature Nike sneaker from 1984 is poised to return in 2023, making the first-ever re-release of the Nike Mac Attack.
Expected to return in several colorways, including a collaboration with Social Status, it will likely be the OG grey/black scheme that will get things going for the silhouette this summer.
Releasing in the mid-80s alongside an aggressive advertising campaign, Johnny Mac’s signature sneaker has as much attitude as the man himself. Bringing a basketball-like aesthetic to the tennis court, McEnroe’s signature Nike sneaker became a favorite in the category, and even leant itself to both gym and casual categories; It was essentially an early-model cross-trainer.

First looks at the OG retro from Long7ze show the remake of the original with black mesh toes, grey mesh meid panels, and a slew of alternating overlays; The forefoot opts for grey, while Swoosh and collar prefer black. A classic white and grey sole unit sits underfoot, while the signature checkerboard tonge tag returns up top in its OG royal, black, and red render.
See for yourself below, and expect more details on the pair’s release to surface soon.
