The Nike Air Tech Challenge II "US Open" colorway, first previewed last weekend, surfaced today in a series of new images, showing off the classic tennis shoe in all of its black and blue glory.

Made famous by Andre Agassi and more recently revived as one of the key inspirations behind the Air Yeezy 2, the excellent Air Tech Challenge II silhouette brings with it a sense of swagger expressed by few other tennis shoes. For the US Open, the shoe features a blacked out leather upper atop a bright blue glow outsole, nicely representing a nighttime match on the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The Nike Air Tech Challenge II "US Open" is now available at 21 Mercer. Stay tuned for additional release information.
