The Racquet Club of Palm Springs.



The Racquet Club of Palm Springs.

The Racquet Club in Palm Springs, California, founded in the early 20th century by two Hollywood actors was the place to be seen in the sixties and the hottest spot for the celebrity social set — so says the September 1960 issue of Palm Springs Life Magazine. Imagine Paul Newman on the courts, Rock Hudson by the pool, and Marilyn in the club’s invite only “Bamboo Room.” The world’s No. 1 tennis players hit balls at the Racquet Club but let’s be honest, the A-Listers had the run of the land.

The mid century modern elegance of the Palm Springs Racquet Club is the inspiration behind our new Mens 09/60 Racquet Club Sneaker. Sleek one-piece circular vamp design makes for an ultra minimal look. Raw edged suede, punched eyelets, and a matching off-white calendar outsole.
