    As it stands:

    There is no definate date of release for the yellow or purple colorways.
    Yellow - approx April
    Purple - approx June

    ATC are out in Europe, but cost $162 from at least 3 different sites to ship to the USA

    Niketown is offering only the boys size at this time on their site (and they are nearly sold out)

    No mens sizes from the big nationwide store sites

    No sign of them at the mall

    TW will not be carrying them

    Has anyone else any info. Are they out in stores near you, or did I miss a site?

    Brian is actually probably one of the nicest guys around. I am not trying to step on your toes so please don't take offence.

    Peace

    Any possibility of a link? I've been calling everywher I can think of to try to find them, and other than paying $160+ plus shipping from Europe, I haven't had any luck.

    I'd REALLY appreciate it.

    alrightttttttt!

    i want these to sell well, otherwise we might never see the 1990 Agassi roland garros orange/white/black Nike Air Tech Challenge II. Those are much better than the ATC III, but i'll take what I can get.

    a lot of the success with retroing (sic?) the shoes will make or break potential retro clothing release. I was forunate to get a Challenge Court polo sample to match the ATC III release this spring, but production on the item was cancelled :-(

    i'm hoping the atc3 sell well as well, its going to be the deciding factor for nike to retro or not to retro agassi tennis shoes

    but damn hope they retro the assailant and court challenge 2

    it's not looking great. they are out one week and have not sold out in any sizes. not the real rush from buyers i would have predicted. Purple ATC 3 are due out in the upcoming weeks. I hope they sell better given their more popular colorway.

    great retros like jordans are sold within hours (sometimes minutes), and are certainly gone in a week's time.

    Pffft, like I'd know
    I heard they aren't actually good for tennis, is that true? (The retros, I don't know about the vintage) Oh, in the first post, how the hell is a 15 year old like me supposed to know what "ATC III" means? Also, the mean response was uncalled for.

    nut up. ur 15. real life is much harder than an unpleasant post.

    as for durability. i have had various results with nike retros. The AJV (air jordan five) are pretty crappy for basketball. The nike air max 90 were great for running and I put >300 miles and a few half marathons on my pair before trading them in for New Balance. The ATC are not made with "durathane", the more durable, long-lasting rubber technology of the 80's.

    ultimately, they're more for a fashion statement... I remember back in the day, the toe-guard of my ATC's would tear away from the shoe if I dragged my toe too much...

    I may have to pick up a pair for casual, not for tennis.
