The latest update of the retro Nike Air Tech Challenge II 'Backhand' sneakers cleverly combine a modern thick-sole silhouette with an out of this world all-white color scheme.

The 'Backhand' version of the Nike Air Tech Challenge II creatively updates designer Andre Agassi's original old-school design. The Nike Air Tech Challenge II sneakers ingeniously mix an athletic functionality with a wider, skater-style silhouette. The shoe is made from high-quality, astronaut-worthy white leather, rendering these kicks perfect for running around the city doing errands or hanging out at dapper occasions. These update sport kicks feature an innovative blue and red pixel accent along the bottom of the shoe and an eye-catching blue Nike swoosh. The playful mix of blue, red and white color-scheme bring to mind the colors of the American flag.
