Who And Why: Tennis icon, acid-wash wearer, mullet king
Years Of Influence: 1986-2006

Andre is an athlete that deserves credit for what he did to the game of tennis and sport in general. He was just so radical. When he played in Wimbledon, for example, he refused to wear all white. Andre actually came out in denim shorts that Nike designed for him and his shoes were pink & lime green. With everything Andre did, good or bad, it elevated Nike. All that “bad” press for Andre was actually amazing for Nike.
