Nike’s radical court sneaker the Air Tech Challenge II is set to make a comeback this month, so there’s no better time to take a look back at the man who catapulted it into the limelight: Andre Agassi.
The ‘Las Vegas Kid’ blazed a trail during the late-80s and 90s thanks to his unmatched charisma and on-court steez. His hair may have disappeared, but the swagger never wavered.
Bright stripes with neon Nikes were standard issue, and the team at Beaverton knew they were onto a winner (they did sign him at age 16, after all). Check out the pictorial below to see what the Swoosh and Andre served up.
