“Look at them. They look like they’re going 80 miles per hour, and they’re just standing still.” –Andre Agassi.
Not only was he a phenomenal tennis player, he was an incredibly good judge of shoe speeds – well not really, but he definitely knew a thing or two about attitude, something the Nike Air Tech Challenge II has in bountiful amounts. First making itself known way back in 1988, the ‘Clay Blue’ is an iconic fan favourite. With its flowing panelling, sports mesh substitutions and enigmatic speed-splatter, it revolutionised the tennis sneak game, and the game of tennis for that matter. Set to return to centre stage in all its glory this coming March 22 via select Nike stockists, best dust off the racket and get some training, you’re going to have to be quick to nab yourself a pair. Available now at Berlin’s Overkill.
