Nike’s penchant for releasing retro models strikes again. This week, rumors of the 1984 tennis trainer, the Mac Attack, surfaced online, indicating the silhouette would return sometime in 2024.

The Nike Mac Attack is coming back.

Additionally, the Mac Attack’s signature toe box paneling was used on 2020’s N.354 Squash Type silhouette, prepping the sneaker world for the return of the stylish older model.
