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.
