I think TW will carry a retro Agassi line for Fall 13.
So you're implying that people the small majority of people like you that will judge the quality of a brands apparel based on the noticeable physical implications of one man, which he had before re-signing with that brand, is a greater cost than the benefit of appealing to a vast target market of middle-aged people who watched Agassi growing up, in addition to adding to the prestige tied to the brand in terms of legendary/well known players that they have been known to sign like Roger, Rafa, Sharapova, Serena, and Sampras?
sinner, i think that might be a slight variant on aa's 91 wimbly shirt (iirc the bottom of the shirt tail was much lighter than that/ kinda washed out looking but the design was still there).
Actually from what I remember, the 1991 Wimbledon shirt was all-white, while the 1992 had the grey-pattern on the shoulder-chest area.
1991 ~ Not the best pic, but you can tell that the collar didn't have any patterns.
1992 ~ You can just see the grey-pattern...
Maybe it was an initial sample that Nike was tempted to use for his 1991 appearance. I remember there being a lot of coverage over what he would wear...
This is awesome! Hope we see some new Air Tech Challenges released. As for a previous comment, about Agassi physicality or fitness rather, he's always walked pigeon towed so to speak but in watching some of his Power Shares matches from last year, everyone said he's in extremely great shape. For a middle aged man, an icon to the the sport of tennis to be in the shape he is today still represents well for a sporting goods company like Nike. Way to Andre!!
Just bought the ATC II rerelease of the bay just recently. They are classic shoes. The hybrids are pretty new but they are not that attractive.
The retro gear should be great. Too bad it will probably take at least a year to get any.
Nike air tech challenge huaraches are set for rerelease
AWESOME ARTICLE, THANKS FOR SHARING.
Unfortunately... the shape is off on these retros... AND THE OUTSOLE... WTH is that?
They're basically using the ATC 3 outsole for these which messes up the shape of the shoe.
The middle pair for me. Can't wait!
It most certainly is. It's certainly why Knight had a tear in his eye.
All of this said, Agassi was a great player and did have a huge impact on the popularity of tennis so he deserves to get rich(er).
Sinner is correct I remember the press over here having a huge build up guessing if he was going to comply with Wimbledons' dress code.Even the warm up suit he wore onto court the first time was all white, even the swoosh if I remember correctly.Which given the time passed I may not now...
Beautiful shoes. I don't really think the remake is that bad, I'm just glad they are rereleasing them. If I bought a pair of the original ones I'd feel bad for wearing them around.
When did you lose your excitement to be alive? Andre and Nike back together is cause for celebration. I hope the pirate outfit returns asap!
This is supposed Agassi's Nike 2013, released during 2013 Us Open!
nike zoom lo cut
ummm... actually... this was already released last year
yea i dont know why everyones so excited about agassi joining, theyve been putting out agassi inspired shoes with or without him for the past 10 years.
You're right! Some sneakers site fooled me.
I'm sorry...Next time I'll be wiser.
He's finally back in the Nike gear! The top appears to be Nike Combat Pro hypercool 2.0.
