Tennis legend John McEnroe and rapper Travis Scott are reportedly working on releasing a collaborative Nike sneaker, first reported by PageSix. McEnroe was a Nike athlete throughout the duration of his career and donned a number of models on the court, including his very own Nike Mac Attack. The shoes have become popular after Travis Scott and LeBron James were both seen wearing a pair. Scott has several signature designs with Nike, including iterations of the Jordan 6, Jordan 4, and Jordan 1. He has designed his own Air Max models, Air Trainers, and even Nike SB shoes. Now, Scott is looking to collaborate with John McEnroe on his classic sneakers.

A source told PageSix that “The new Mac Attack sneakers are in the works…The collaboration is definitely coming.” Scott teased a new ‘Utopia' branded Nike tracksuit while donning the Mac Attacks. Travis Scott usually releases a line of Nike or Jordan clothing in harmony with his sneaker releases, so this may be a strong hint at what we can expect next. While no word has come out from John McEnroe, there's reason to believe that this will be the next sneaker Scott works on with Nike.

The Nike Mac Attack features an all grain-leather upper with perforations throughout the shoe for breathability. The have a flat outsole, perfect for traction on a tennis court. They also feature a raised ankle for maximum support while still maintaining the look of a lowtop sneaker. Teased by Scott, his pair features the signature backwards Nike swoosh that so many of his pairs have. This is an interesting collaboration to say the least but knowing Travis Scott, there should be a huge boost in the desirability for John McEnroe's classic kicks.
