Nike has revealed official images of the Nike Air Tech Challenge II "Australian Open," paying homage to tennis great Andre Agassi and his Grand Slam victories at the courts of Melbourne. The silhouette is true to its original shape but refreshed with the technology of today, featuring an upper constructed from premium white leather and a toe panel built with TecTuff leather. Meanwhile, the panel's solar orange hue accents and arched curvature forms recall the famous rock formations of the vast Australian Outback, and the vivid blue midsole matches the iconic hue of the Australian Open's hard court surfaces. Finally, the rear panel is embroidered with the number 1036, denoting the impressive tally of career match wins Agassi accrued at Melbourne Park. The shoe's tongue, coded with the digits to represent the years in which Agassi won the tournament, rounds out the details. The Nike Air Tech Challenge II launches today at 21 Mercer and Dover Street Market in New York.
