    IIRC...he wore the cross trainers like McEnroe his first couple years on tour. I think that would be '86-'88

    Dont forget air zoom beyond plus (2000), as well as the air zoom court posites(2002), never worn by andre but they were his shoe. He also wore the breathe free 2's for part of 2005, before addias up until the french open.

    Yeah, I Remember The Beyond Plus And The Courtposites. The Courtposites Looked Cool But Weren't Too Comfy To Play In.

    No he would have been in the Air Tech Challenges in 1991. I looked on sight you linked and he never wore those. He wore the Air Trainer I's (Grey,w/Black Swoosh and green trim)

    Looking at that web site from Tennis Sucks makes me really miss my old Air Tech Challeges.

    That was the style. They have retro'ed them a couple of times. Not a bad shoe for indoors or clay but they really lacked the cushioning for hardcourt use.

    Agassi shoe from 97 is the Air Zoom Challenge Court No 2. For sure. The fact that 96 shoe is missing leads me to believe that the Andre would have worn the Air Zoom Challenge Court 1 in that year.

    was the zoom challenge court 2 ever retroed?

    only the air trainer 1 and flare were retroed in the agassi line?

    my mate has a pair of feathers but says that they do not support your ankle and you could easily sprain it. dont recommend buying these.

    You are easilly to sprain your ankles with super light shoes. Thats why I never wear running shoes or really light tennis shoes.

    I just want to say that these shoes are excellent, just as your mate, I too own these shoes and I wear them primarily on hard-court. I've worn them for over a month, still no signs of wear and ZERO ankle support problems!

    It depends on your foot type if you can wear superlight shoes. If you don't have a fairly neutral foot, yes they can be prolematic.:cool:

    ^Man those Zoom Challenge Court's bring back memories. I remember when I got them at the US Open before they released anywhere else that summer.

    The shoes that they have pictured for the Air Challenge Future's are not the correct shoes. Those are actually a basketball shoe that Nike came out with in 93/94 that the Georgetown Hoya's used to wear (I think they were the Air Unlimited). The rest of that site has some great photos though.

    This is what I recall.

    1988 - air ace low (white, green, black) this might have been version II
    1988 - air trainer I (white, green, black)
    1989 - air tech challenge I (marine green, neon orange French / purple, marine blue US Open)
    1989 - air tech challenge II (hot pink, black, grey - Masters)
    1990 - air tech challenge II (hot pink, black, grey - French)
    1990 - air tech challenge III (optic yellow - 90 US Open)
    1991 - air tech challenge III (purple - French)
    1991 - air tech challenge IV (black / red - US Open Davis Cup)
    1992 - air tech challenge IV (baby blue / black)
    1992 - air challenge huarache (white Wimbledon / white green US Open)
    1993 - air challenge huarache (white, yellow, black)

    Don't forget the Air Alarms fit in the late 90's somewhere.
