Nike Brings The Pinstripe Theme To A Tennis Classic

Nike’s latest Air Tech Challenge II featured pinstripes on the heel in what could be another Grand Slam reference. The closest resemblance of Agassi’s wardrobe would be his pinstriped duds at the 1995 French Open and now the Nike Tennis Classic received a matching upgrade. The Tennis Classic returns featuring a premium white leather base to match the outsole while a Gym Blue Swoosh extends to the heel to match the pinstripes and Hot Lava tooling on the ‘Nike’ branding. What do you think of the potential return of the Grand Slam references on Nike tennis retros? Check out a better view below and we’ll keep you updated when this pair arrives stateside.

words // Ian Stonebrook:

What does it take to be a household name in the sneaker culture? A decorated body of work.

Nike’s Tinker Hatfield has all that and more, creating kicks and even categories that have shaped sportswear and helped define a culture. In celebration of Tinker’s birthday, members of Nice Kicks share their favorite Tinker designs.

Join in on the fun by posting your favorite Tinker-designed sneakers on Twitter and Instagram and using the #TinkerDay hashtag.

Gregory Williams: Air Jordan 11

con-close-1

Without a doubt, the Air Jordan 11 is my all-time favorite Tinker Hatfield-designed shoe. Aside from being one of my favorite Jordan silhouettes ever, the design is immaculate. From its subtle mesh upper to its iconic patent leather mudguard, the AJ11 is truly timeless.

I vividly remember the watching the Bulls throughout the 95-96 season and when I saw MJ hit the hardwood in these, I knew that there was something special about those kicks. They brought an unparalleled level of class and style to the basketball sneaker landscape and they are part of the reason why I named my brother Jordan. With Space Jam still being one of my favorite movies, it’s safe to say that the Air Jordan 11 still has a longstanding effect on me.

USP NFL: NEW ORLEANS SAINTS AT CAROLINA PANTHERS S FBN USA NC

Brand: Under Armour
Draft: 2011 NFL Draft
Selection: Number One Overall
Signature Model: Under Armour C1N

After leading Auburn to a National Championship and garnering the Heisman Trophy, Cam Newton decided to forgo his collegiate eligibility to enter the 2011 NFL Draft. Amid a bevy of questions surrounding controversial matters dating back to his time at the University of Florida, the Carolina Panthers and Under Armour decided to take a chance on Newton as they crowned him their leading man. Since entering the league, Newton has sported a variety of UA models including his signature silhouette the C1N.

Arriving in an abundance of hues, Newton has been seen in eclectic colors as well as a Superman inspired makeup and a Charlotte Hornets PE. Although strict NFL uniform regulations prohibits Newton from sporting them in the game, big things should arrive between UA and Newton, in the near future.
