OFFICIAL AGASSI RETRO THREAD...Nike Hit The Ball as Loud as You Can shirt released - Page 7

post #181 of 36448
Like i said earlier. I highly doubt it. The shoe was only in production for III weeks. Not many were made at all.

I noticed Andre wearing this track jacket on an interview. A nice jacket but can't believe they haven't released anything for him yet on their site.

post #183 of 36448

Yeah, saw this a while back... GR-stuff... one thing I have noticed is that since re-signing with Nike's he's been wearing a lot of yellow/volt stuff... laugh.gif

A sign of things to come? nerd.gif

There needs to be some retro stuff by the time the Open starts.

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense...

 

If not, the Aussie Open, where he had the most success, maybe?

OG ~ Obviously they're different colorways, but it just confirms that they got the bits and pieces all wrong.

Never heard of that model but from what I see I am not feeling them.... :/

Good to finally see some more pics of the shoes but I was really hoping for a US Open shoe. I'm assuming that these will hit the outlets at some point since they aren't like the og's but I'll still need them since i've been waiting so long for any type of Agassi retro. And I have to wait till' spring 2014?! Ridiculous.

may give in.... In all honesty, the sole swap isn't all that bad. Definitely not bad like how they did us on the air pressures mean.gif
post #196 of 36448
Meh...Wanted these more than anything back in 5th grade but mom wouldn't break the two pairs per year rule she had imposed...Was really praying these would turn out better...

I'll get down with the OG color-ups but not too happy with how they turned out...Close enough I guess...

At any rate it's a plus because most people won't even recognize this shoe anyway...

OG Agassi sample

OG agassi 2

 

And again, the OG's were called the "Air Challenge Huarache".

They're probably calling these the "Air Tech Challenge Huarache" cuz they used the Air Tech Challenge 3 outsoles on them. eyes.gif

Not close enough. Gotta do better than that to get me to come out of pocket for a new retro release nowadays.

Yeah, it's not that bad

On discount

I wonder if they still have the original mold for the sole

I would guess they don't have the original mold otherwise they would have used it. It appears to me they are just lazy and content with "pleasing" the majority uniformed "masses" vs. the total retro OG "purists". It doesn't look correct with the atc3 sole and toe in place, but thats just me- I vividly remember wearing and loving my OG teals. Will I cop- possibly- is it a must have- no- there is no doubt its a 75-80% effort when 90-100 would be preferred. That being said, there is no way these were going to move in large numbers even with old tooling- they just aren't that revered or well known. ATC3, my hope would be yes- do it right- not half arsed- and maybe we are onto something. This is JV at best. I am awaiting the Varsity effort.

They don't look bad if you consider it a different shoe.  That being said, I'm glad I don't have any sentimental attachment to this model cause they really butchered these.  Between these and the Air Up retros I don't like where NSW is headed.

post #203 of 36448

For God's sake Gentry, stop F'n up the ATCs!!!

 

We need OG drops of I-IV.  Is it too much to ask?..

post #204 of 36448

And there lies my problem... my sentimental-attachment to the Challenge Court/Agassi line (if it wasn't obvious before embarassed.gif).  The thing is, a lot of sneakerheads will see these as a good retro.  Look at a few of the sneaker blogs... I haven't seen one that has mentioned the inaccuracies of these.  As far as they're concerned, it's a "proper retro".  I wish they'd do a bit of homework and make it known to the masses that this retro just isn't good enough.

 

I guess the bright side is that ATC IV's used a similar outsole, hopefully they'll retro those AND get them right.  

 

I don't even feel the desire to get these retros and thrash them around a tennis court. tired.gif

will definitely cop if they hit the otlets. I copped the ATC IIIs when they were $40 at the outlets. The sonic yellow was not justified nor the $40 price tag. The ATC IIs however.... pimp.gif one of the few retroes justified by the anvil of judge judy
post #206 of 36448
Makes me a tad angry. The Tech Challenge line is my all time favorite and with little to no love the least they could have done with these is get the midsole correct. Putting a Tech III on these is an obvious cheap out. Seems like this line stays getting the half *** treatment starting with the Tech Challenge III retro and ending with the Tech IV hybrid and now these. Thankfully the Tech II wasn't butchered otherwise all hope would have been lost, come on Nike you can do better than this.
post #207 of 36448
The mystery to me is WHY? why do we see these hybrids and halfasd attempts when it comes to the Agassis? what is there to gain from a marketing/business perspective?
The only ones thats goin hard for these are the genuin heads out there , at least the ones thats still left... I really hope, once and for all, we'll see a true to form retro line I-IV .cause these are my last hope from this brand since the design and materials are goin in a complete new direction , a direction which is far from what i once fell in love with many yrs ago.

It would tell me that it is so ridiculously cheap and easy relatively speaking to take shortcuts, that it doesn't even matter if the shoe does reasonably well. Long story short, if people will buy them for 110/20/30, and it only costs 15 bucks to make em, we can live with them making their way to outlets and people being excited to grab em for 55/60. If we took what it takes to make them "OG Head worthy" it would add 15-20 bucks to cost and they would still likely end up in outlets because even Wally Hopp wouldn't buy us out of a "perfectly done" retro. I am not saying I agree with the thinking, but its likely it just isn't worth the effort to do it "properly" as some of us would like to see it done. Most people wouldn't begin to appreciate OG fabrics/color pallets and toe box design. Just my .02, I could be way wrong, but only thing I can think of with regards to these ridiculous mashups and "hybrids". Almost reminds me of guys who make custom Harleys with everything from car parts, to boat parts, and tractor seats. How outrageous can we get and still get people to buy into the cool hybrid thing.

Shortcuts are barely taken on other obscure models. Yet the AGASSI line has been dragged through an alley filled with vile pieces of garbage for a couple years now... Not cool.

I realize they can get away with it here. I'm not sure on a marino turf retro they can use some deion sanders retro outsole. Likewise with the pillars, deions, raider turfs, air veers, and a number of other retros that had all new molds created and complete.. More obscure less appealing models than the ones they actually choose to skimp on... My mind is blown.. Didn't Nike just re sign Andre too? They go through all these hoops, and the shoes turn out this way?

Looking at a side by side. The midsole midfoot piece that is black is the center piece of the shoe. On these latest retros, the whole flow of the shoe is off... To top it off, the heel piece is speckled right near the agassi lined print, which is 100% conflicting.

The picking and choosing of what to do right irks me the most with Nike.
