A fashion favourite from the past, Sergio Tacchini is a comeback brand. From the tennis court to the studio and to the street – these sneakers were a big thing back in the day. Not surprisingly, considering the fact these sneakers were designed by a tennis player and worn by tennis legends, including John McEnroe, who played out his famous tirade in a pair of Sergio Tacchini Young Line Polo sneakers. Other tennis pros wearing these sneakers included Pete Sampras, Martina Hingis, and Novak Djokovic.
Off the court, these sneakers were frequently found on the feet of rap legends, including LL Cool J, Nas, Notorious B.I.G, and others. Soon, the sneaker brand made its way into their song lyrics and the athleisure trend took root through their influence. Today, the Sergio Tacchini New Young Line brings back that tennis freshness but with a new take.
Sergio Tacchini New Young Line – An Authentic Re-Issue
Drawing on its roots as a heritage tennis brand, the Sergio Tacchini New Young Line sneaker has a clean yet retro appeal for today’s era. The classic court sneaker features a premium full-grain leather upper, with an all-white base. Colourways include blue, green and red, with a minimal look that is true to the brand’s original style.
To maintain the shoe’s authentic look and design, 3D technology was used to recreate the original Young Line sneaker. Pattern, tooling and hand-crafted outsoles from the 80s sneaker were reproduced, with the final sneaker including signature branding on heels, tongue and side.

Available in Core Black, Butter Cream, Night Sky, Pine Grove, Tango Red and Spicy Mustard colourways, these sneakers are made for all-day comfort.
