The adidas TMac 1 Retro Returns in Home and Away Flavors

Last re-released back in 2013, adidas Originals is set to re-launch the TMac 1 Retro in Home and Away colors.

A shoe I love to look at, but loath playing in, the adidas TMac 1 took the original shell-toe design and made it modern.

Both the original Orlando Home and Away versions of the Tmac 1 that McGrady wore in his first year, are re-releasing and it’s great to see Tracy McGrady get some love apart from the newly remixed model — the adidas T-Mac Millennium.

This Retro version looks to identical to the original with its rugged rubber shell-toe, double-last midsole housing adiPrene+ and the midfoot Torsion support plate. Herringbone traction is in place and is the shoes main bright spot in an otherwise stiff and rigid shoe.

While I’m not a fan of the adidas TMac 1 on-court, I know there are plenty that have fond memories playing in the shoe. Sound off below and let us know if the adidas TMac 1 returning in these two OG flavors hits you in the feels.

They’ll be available — Home & Away –at SNS for $160 beginning March 1.

  1. Not sure adidas is pricing these properly. $160? Really? I would comfortably cop these at $120 or below, but $160 range should be reserved for performance shoes with current tech and innovations. I think there is a disconnect somewhere in 3 stripes land with this kind of pricing as I can’t think of any adidas retro that would warrant that kind of price range except maybe a protro of certain shoes from the old Kobe, Rose, and T-Mac lines (they already have one for T-Mac priced at, you guessed it, $160)

  2. With all of their best tech coming in around 140-160 (Hardens/Crazy Explosive) and even their newer items at 180 (N3xt L3v3l) with better tech these are way overpriced. They need to be at the 120-140 range if they are making no enhancements to them.

  3. i think they are following the pricing moDel of jordan brand. retro something that has Nostalgic feels with buyers and jack the price up. but i don’t think people feel the same way aBout these like jordans.

    if they protro these, different story. p.s
    the 2013 re-release were sitting at the discount self for less than usd50 less than 1 year after release in Hong Kong.

  4. These were my “Answer IVs” because I couldn’t get those as a kid and they were always sold out lol. They had that two-tone effect that the Answers did and loved that blocky design. Classic 2000s style, but as everyone else said it’s a hard pass at $160 lol. Could find some of the 2013 pairs cheaper than that somewhere.
