adidas Barricade 7

Athlete: Andy Murray

Andy Murray is still lacing up the Three Stripes, for now at least. Murray sported white Barricade 7s when he finally broke though at Wimbledon in 2013, becoming the first English player in 77 years to win at home. After that, would you change your shoes? The sneakers couldn't work their magic at this year's tournament however, where he was bounced in the quarter finals by Grigor Dimitrov.

Widely known as Courier's shoe, they were nothing if not durable. In the age of flashy Air Tech Challenges on the feet of Agassi, the Air Resistance went for durability first.

Nike Air Oscillate

Athlete: Pete Sampras
Years worn: 7

The story behind the Air Oscillate is a well-known sneaker classic. Tinker Hatfield, the man who created the Air Jordan line, wanted to design a shoe for Pete Sampras. Sampras had no intention of changing up his footwear, however. Instead of asking Sampras for input, Hatfield went to numerous tennis players for input and feedback. When the shoe was ready, Hatfield proposed a game of pickup basketball, and provided Sampras with the Air Oscillate. Not knowing that it was even meant for tennis, Sampras fell in love with the sneaker and wore it for the next seven years.

Ivan Lendl played like a machine. It made him a winner, but it also made him a little boring.

It all started with the Lendl Supreme in 1984, which featured an oversized tongue and molded overlays.
