From the ground up

The Nike Air Tech Challenge and Air Tech Challenge II redefined tennis shoes when the silhouettes first made their debut. While remaining lighter than most low top tennis shoes of its time, the ATC II’s synthetic leather upper allowed it to withstand the sport’s rigorous back and forth while an external molded heel counter improved the fit and provided additional comfort. Staying true to the heritage that made it legendary, Nike will be re-releasing the classic silhouette in all of its original glory. The Nike Air Tech Challenge II “Hot Lava” will be available January 24 at Nike and select retailers.
