The 2016 Australian Open just got better with the word that this timeless Nike model will be making a surprise return during the Grand Slam Down Under.

The Nike Air Tech Challenge 2 "Hot Lava" is popping up now on the calendars of European sneaker retailers, despite having just released in 2014. An up-close look at the production dates on the tags in these official images reveals that these are indeed newly produced.

It's unclear if this retro offering will be available for U.S. stockists. Watch for updated info on that here.
