The New NIKE Air Tech Challenges are building upon the solid foundation set by its predecessor. Tennis legend Andre Agassi is not only known for his staggering dominance on the tennis court, but his impeccable style when it comes to sneakers. "The Las Vegas Kid" is bringing the heat again with the NIKE Air Tech Challenge II, a mouthful to pronounce and a handful to play against.

Unless you're a serious tennis fan, tennis shoes usually go under-the-radar; they don't have the same crossover appeal. Where basketball shoes are deeply entrenched in urban culture, tennis shoes are more used around as walking shoes for the most part.

Agassi is changing this with his French Open-inspired design. The shoes feature bold, red, vertical striped on a dark gray and black background. The high-top is aggressive with its styling so you can be aggressive on the court.
