Nike 2020 General Thread

I ordered L and will let everyone know too. My package arrives over the weekend by looks of it...

I'm 6'2" 180 lbs but broad shoulders and athletic.. after reading up a lot of posts of how the polos are more slim cut than usual, I have a sneaky suspicion L will be too snug on me.. I usually wear L in Nike polos and crews.
Well the package came and it was on its way back 20 mins later.. the ny fall polo is more than usual slim cut and I look like a rugby player in it...as expected very tight on top of shoulders and slims down further as it goes down. Im pretty fit but looks like Im wearing a size small or even two..The other cropped polo was disappointing with sizing as well, the front only coming down till my belly button and giving a very unflattering look.. The jorts I got in M (my usual size) but they are one size too tight as well I feel. Keeping the jacket & black/hot lime fall shorts..bummed because that fall polo looks pretty cool really..

You should check out what @KANZA has. He replicated the McEnroe checkerboard shirts really really well. His stuff is too notch. I think you may like it.

I LOVE the flame ball logo. Grew up with it. I'm 44 on Wednesday and already wear my challenge court bucket hat daily and will wear the polo shirts, the jorts and the flame ball shorts with pride! Nike should never have shelved Challenge Court to the archives. With the way their current tennis offerings were looking (rather boring and bleak) this release has been a blessing! Plus, it shows Nike that the stuff will sell if released (and it's selling like hotcakes). Tennis fans, Agassi heads (like myself who grew up playing like him) and even general sneakerheads are grabbing pieces from the collection. I hope the rumor I read in here that another release come Spring is true.
Thanks, i know KANZA for many years, even before he started his cool enterprise. (y)

The NY Challenge Court Advantage Polo? I find it slimmer fit than Rafa Aeroreact..I have both.. the NY Crop Polo yes that's loose fit and roomier but its cropped in the front so much the shirt reaches even above my belly button..it looks like I'm wearing a loose trashbag, don't find it a flattering fit on me at all.

So is everyone just out of luck with those $35 heavy Challenge Court tees? I only saw them available on a few sites since it is more off-court wear, but they seem sold out everywhere with people online trying to sell them for double now.

I’ve bought both colors of the advantage polo, they fit very snug, I had to size up. I used to wear the blue one back in the days, and I’m a bit disappointed by this new offering. The breathe material doesn’t suit the style, it looks cheap and fake. Colors aren’t as bright, reinforcing the cheap impression.

man, what I would give for Nike to retro the Agassi collection from the mid-90s to early 2000s. I would go on a buying tear.

This and the orange one above look pretty loose to me on the models. Is the fit for them all over the place? Which ones are the ones that everyone is saying are fitting super tight and snug?
That item above is the regular tee that’s polycotton with a regular/standard fit. Item number: CW1526-100. The one that are full poly are slim fit/snug. Item number: CK9797-101 and CK9797-100.

Got my order delivered today. Had already gotten the two non-zip polos, black/volt and blue/red flame ball shorts, and shorts w/spandex. Today I got the Agassi zip polo and another pair of the spandex jorts. Predictably, the shirt looks ridiculous on me. Hahaha. The original looked a lot better on me at 13 than this one does at 43. This order will be going back. Gave it a shot for nostalgia's sake, but there's no way I would wear it. I love that design, though. If Nike ever made it in a regular polo then we'd be in business.

Well, as it turns out, my school has a contract with Nike and that's what I'm now required to wear on the courts. Already decided on the Vapor Cage 4 and GP Turbo for shoes. Is it just me or does Nike no appear to have a lot of short offerings in a 9" inseam? That's what I'm used from wearing Adidas apparel.

Are you still in high school or college? Most of Nike shorts have 9” inseam. The Flex Ace, the Woven 9”, and the Team Appeal one in which your school (like most others) are going to use.

Got ya. Well, most high schools call in any tennis retail store and the usually have a Team Appeal hot line where you can place orders and such. They have the basic 9” shorts and crews/polos.
Yeah, we already have uniforms for competition so we're good there. I was just given the gentle reminder that as the coach, I need to be in Nike apparel while coaching.

It is really too bad these sold out so fast. They are on the auction site for double the price. I am hoping they produce more.
The good news is that there is more to come with later anniversaries, with the challenge court logo shirts repeating in other colourways relevant to the later collections.

These things and also the long sleeve versions must have sold so well. I don't know anyone who bought just one. Most people loaded up on multiple colours, which obviously depleted the lines very quickly.

I ended up getting the shorts with the compression shorts built-in, a headband, and a black t-shirt with the Challenge Court logo on the front. I doubt I will wear any of this in matches, it's more for nostalgia and I had money burning a hole in my pocket.
Are these Challenge Court shirts thin/soft? Or does the huge print stiffen up the front? Would like to have this shirt for nostalgia's sake, but not a fan of shirts that end up having that 'rough' silk screen effect.

It’s a ‘thick’ 100% cotton tee. Loose fitting, so size down if necessary. Very comfortable and the screen print isn’t bad, it’s well made. The AO 2020 one is the same style.
 
Has anyone bought the warm up pants? I'm debating pulling the trigger but wondering if anyone has comments on them.
I got them and LOVE THEM!! Very comfortable. Zippers at the collars down by your ankles so talking them off over shoes will be easy. They are lined to keep a little warmth during a fall day. I am 6' 185 with a 34" inseam and I got the XL and they fit great. I wanted them a little loose as I always wear a pair of shorts under my wind pants (either basketball or tennis shorts). Plus, I suffer from severe Crohn's and I can't wear anything that is really snug around my waist as that pressure makes me feel more uncomfortable than I already am. I basically live in warmup pants in the fall. I have several pairs of Jordan nylon pants. These are just as good. Definitely grab a pair of you can.

I want the pants and the Black and White jacket.

I’ll wear it while playing. Already have with the Jorts and the big ball shorts, both go great with my Volt cage III’s

TW: Any idea if these products are coming back in stock (shorts, crop top)? I see one some other sites their available for pre-order, but TW doesn't indicate that they're coming back....

Anyone else have an idea? You'd think Nike would want to sell more...

I completely blanked on these and missed out. They sound good, and at the moment, it's kind of handy to have these sort of lounging style clothes.

Before Corona hit, I hadn't worn sweatpants / warmup style pants in 20 years, and since the shutdown and quarantine I've bought 4-5 pairs.

Just go to the Nike site and turn on restock notifications. If TW has a similar thing, turn it on there, too.

The crossover market for this Agassi stuff is huge and tennis fans are competing with hypebeast/streetwear type consumers who are snapping up a lot of the stuff as soon as it comes out.

You have to be quick.

For anyone interested: I have the "New York Team Court Advantage Tennis Polo" in black and blue; it's exactly the same as the "Summer Slam Paris Polo" from the French Open collection. Same material, same fit, same design, just different graphics. It's definitely slim; the tag lists it as "slim fit."

The Court Slam Half Zip is very comfortable and loose, but I'm not sure what it would be like to play with it because the front is so short. The tag lists it as "loose "

Great collection.

Can anyone in here say how the long sleeve challenge shirts fit compared to either the sportwear challenge court shirt or the printed all over t shirt? I'm triyng to decide if I should get Medium or Large. I have a large in the all over printed T which fits great. But the large in the challenge court sportswear T is too baggy.

Thanks!

Shoes are the best and most unique item in the line.
The 80 buck blue black crew is beautiful, but a bit too much to walk around in.

I see what you mean. It looks as if Azarenka is using the Vapor NXT upper on a Vapor X outsole. I’m not sure if I like the rounded/rocked heel of the sample pic of the NXT. It looks similar to the Vapor Cage 4. I’m eager to see the production pair! Off the top of my head, Rublev, Moutet, and Holger Rune tested the new Vapor NXT in white during the past few months during the lockdown offseason. None have worn it in matches besides Azarenka as far as I know.
