Nike's had some unexpected Andre Agassi retro release choices as of late, first bringing back the "Hot Lava" Tech Challenge 2 out of nowhere and now porting its look over to an updated tennis model that doesn't have much to do with the man.
The model, the Nike Tennis Classic Ultra, is restrained with its use of the lava speckles – they arrive only on the heel tabs. Elsewhere the shoe adheres very much to the sensibilities of traditional tennis wear with an all-white look.
This Nike Tennis Classic Ultra will launch overseas on Jan. 25 at Asphalt Gold.
