Although classic sneakers are usually at their best in their original unaltered forms, Nike often finds a way to tastefully remix the silhouettes we grew up on. In rare cases, it’s even able to outdo the O.G. design, and that’s a case that could be made for these Andre Agassi throwbacks.
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen the Air Tech Challenge II, but Nike just brought it back as a QS release for the Australian Open. This pack features two different colorways — “Grey Blue” and “Light Bone” — each of which is made up of mixed materials including colorful suede overlays and perforated synthetic leather. The “Grey Blue” colorway gives off something of a Stash feel, while the “Light Bone” take echoes Hiroshi Fujiwara’s work on last year’s fragment design x Air Trainer 1collab.
The best part about these is that you won’t have to wait to cop them. In true Quickstrike fashion, these are now available from Nikestore for $130 apiece.
