NIKE TENNIS WEEK

The right technology – the wrong sport. Nike’s revolutionary Posite technology dipped its toes in the sport of tennis by releasing the Nike Zoom Courtposite in 2002 under the Agassi label. The low-cut model featured a one-piece Posite upper with a distinctively engineered outsole, emphasizing stress points on the outriggers and heel for decoupling, and the pronounced caps on the toe and heel kept the athlete’s foot in place. However, like all Posite-based footwear models, it took a few wears for the Posite to settle in, and combined with the general subpar level of breathability, the Zoom Courtposite wasn’t a very popular model among tennis players (Agassi himself chose not to wear them). It was an interesting foray into the world of tennis, but Posite proved to be unfitting for the style of tennis and the Courtposite eventually became a bargain-hunter find. Certainly one of the lesser known endeavors by the Nike Alpha Project, so refresh your memory of the Zoom Courtposite below in tonight’s Classics Revisited segment.
