The Air Tech Challenge III, launched in 1991 as the Air Tech Challenge ¾, included visible air in the heel and a flexible encapsulated Nike Air-sole unit in the forefoot.The third installment of the Air Tech Challenge line also moved away from the “Hot Lava” colorway made popular by its predecessor, opting for an equally eye-catching, tennis ball-inspired neon yellow pop. For Agassi, it represented an evolution in on-court aesthethics that, like many models in his signature line, resonated off the court.

Nike Air Tech Challenge II Clay Blue

We previewed it a few weeks ago, Nike officially unveiled it this week: the Nike Air Tech Challenge II “Clay Blue”.

Originally designed by legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield for Andre Agassi, the Air Tech Challenge II features bold colors and a paint-spattered pattern inspired by Agassi’s powerful backhand, making the shoe appear “faster.”

“I always wanted to wear the shoes off court, but at that time I worried they would attract too much attention,” Agassi says. “So while I never got to wear them off court back then, I’m excited I get to now.”

The Nike Air Tech Challenge II “Clay Blue” will be available globally at select Nike Sportswear retailers and on Nike.com beginning March 22.

At the 2012 Australian Open back in January, Roger Federer debuted the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour, his most advanced tennis shoe to date. Created by Tinker Hatfield, the shoe was an instant classic, featuring a foot frame for increased support, Lunarlon and Zoom Air in the heel for lightweight cushioning, and finally Adaptive Fit that wraps around the midfoot for a personalized fit.

The shoe now makes its customization debut at NIKEiD in Men’s, Women’s and Kid’s sizes. You can now create your own personal version of the Zoom Vapor 9 Tour.
