Ready for some more Nike Tennis fire? The Nike Tennis Flame Collection pays tribute to the original “burning ball” logo that was seen on the Air Tech Challenge, sparking a mass collection of energetic and fiery colorways of footwear and apparel. This 2012 version relives that early-90′s heat with the Nike Tennis Flame Pack, featuring the Zoom Vapor Tour 9, Air Max Courtballistec 4.3, and Zoom Breathe 2k13 in a fierce colorway inspired by that burning ball logo. We recently previewed these as the ‘Agassi’-inspired releases (which is accurate), and it appears that the shoes and the t-shirt will hit stores on November 1st with Federer wearing his Tour 9s in London. A gallery is right ahead so take a look!

Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 “Agassi”

nike zoom vapor tour 9 agassi 1 Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 Agassi

Andre Agassi had a variety of pioneering endorsements, a model/actress wife and plenty of Grand Slam titles of his own (not to mention the Olympic Gold), but when you look at the number of major championships Roger Federer has amassed, it’s downright silly to argue that Andre or any other man has ever played tennis better, for longer.  Federer favors traditional looks on court, but his Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 by Tinker Hatfield gets an extra jolt by borrowing a recognizable colorway from the mulleted megastar’s fourth and final Air Tech Challenge signature.  These new ZVT9s opt for a darker base than those ATCIVs, which leaves the signature heel graphic feeling less like playful irreverence and more like an unstoppable ace streaking past a helpless receiver.  Let us know how these compare to Agassi’s originals and Rafa’s similar Air Max Courtballistec 4.3 and stick with Sneaker News because these should arrive at select retailers shortly.

Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 + Air Max Courtballistec 4.3 – Agassi Inspired

October 24th, 2012 by | 4 comments

nike tennis agassi inspired Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 + Air Max Courtballistec 4.3   Agassi Inspired

While the overall popularity of contemporary tennis shoes hasn’t reached the levels of Nike’s earliest Tennis endeavors with the Air Trainer 1 and Agassi line, the footwear line-up – namely Federer’s Zoom Vapor Tour 9 and Nadal’s Air Max Courtballistec series – is the undisputed number-one in the world. Two of the sport’s most successful athletes wearing the Swoosh will lead to some outstanding products, but we’re in for a special treat with this sick duet of Nike Tennis models colored up “Agassi” style. Both models feature a unique splatter graphic on the heel, reminiscent of the punchy graphics seen on Agassi’s Tech Challenge series. These are slated to release in early November, so check out the gallery below and let us know if you think Nike should toy around more with a “old meets new” concept for these underrated tennis models.

If there was ever a time for adidas to take advantage of Andy Murray, it’s right this instant.  The British tennis star might have enough momentum to one day have an ObyO capsule that’s as popular with the mod set as Fred Perry’s eponymous label, but Muzza has a long way to go before he overtakes the man with whom he split the summer’s big London tourneys.  Don’t forget that Roger Federer defeated Murray two months earlier at Wimbledon, and don’t sleep on your chance to get in on the seventeen-time Grand Slam champion’s latest signature release.  The Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour was built for the GOAT in ‘Day’ and ‘Night’ colorups for the recently concluded US Open, and it looks like they’re available for a short time at select NikeTown locations.  Let us know how these compare to the more obviously New York-inspired edition and stick with Sneaker News for more from the Nike Tennis greats.

The 2012 US Open is off and running in Flushing, Queens as the world’s greatest tennis stars convened once again for this annual tradition.

More of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 ‘NYC’ and the t-shirt below, so take a look and let us know if you’ll be trying to grab a pair as Federer tries to add #18 to his belt at the US Open!

Flushing, Queens is home to the historic sport landmark known as the U.S. Open, where the world’s best clash at Arthur Ashe for Grand Slam glory. To kick off the 2012 US Open in high fashion, Nike will release a super-limited version of the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 (Roger Federer’s signature model) in an area-specific colorway of royal blue and orange – the colors of the New York Mets MLB franchise that takes the field just across the street from the US Open. Federer will be wearing the Navy/Red colorway of the Vapor Tour 9 (featured as part of the Nike Tennis New York Collection) throughout the tournament, but will he switch things up to the Blue/Orange ‘NYC’ if he reaches the final? Along with this special Hyperstrike colorway is the classic Nike ‘NYC’ logo on the tongue as well as on the insole of the shoe to complete the regional vibe. A select number of pairs will be released on site at the 2012 US Open (much like last year’s ‘Tennis Ball’ Courtballistec was made available) with another batch set to drop across the river at New Jersey’s Packer Shoes. Check out the teaser pics after the jump, and with the tourney starting today, expect specific release info coming very soon.
