OFFICIAL AGASSI RETRO THREAD...Nike Hit The Ball as Loud as You Can shirt released - Page 1154

post #34591 of 36911

Arrived from SJS yesterday afternoon! A day earlier than expected! Crazy, considering I only ordered them on Saturday and they shipped from Italy. I've ordered shoes locally that haven't arrived that fast. Unfortunately, I did get hit with a $61 CAD customs fee. That sucked, but it is worth it. The quality on these is very nice, IMO and they are very comfortable.

 

I am so happy to finally have the shoes that match my Agassi shirt and shorts after 25 years of waiting!  Now I just need to find my shorts!

 

 

The ONLY thing that bugs me about these, and the same goes for the recent ATC2 retros too, is how the heel protrudes, or curves into the midsole.  The OG's had a straight heel and the early pics of this particular retro showed them to have a straight heel as well, but in person, the heel still protrudes or curves a little.  It harder to tell in the pic of my pair, but below is a comparison pic of what I am talking about. 

 

 

It's not the end of the world though, I'm still extremely happy with them!  Thanks to Khan for sharing that SJS link!!

Was out today running errands and took a trip to KOP Mall. These things are VERY COMFY!!! And the creasing is basically done. Once you walk in them at first, that's where it will be creasing at, then nothing more. Woke the guy at Champs up when he saw these. Didn't know what they were 😀 His co-worker knew though 👍 My favorite retro this year!!!!

Now please Nike, release the Marinas!!!!

Once I got mine open I noticed one more difference.  I recall the 1991s having a glossier/shinier finish on the plastic heel counter.

These '16s are a very matte finish that doesn't quite come across in the photos.

 

It's a weird effect, brighter and duller at the same time.

I think we might have seen pics of those posted in here?  For sure, I think I've seen pics of those before.

Un-DS'd them today... absolutely outstanding.  The comfort was great and the creasing wasn't bad (right at my big-toe joint, which is normal).

Took me back to my summer of '92 when I wore these to a summer camp at Bollettieri with my friends... then got home to see Agassi win Wimbledon.  

 

What a summer... nostalgia.

I played there in the summer of 92 did you?

No, not at Florida.  I went to the one in Hawaii... shorter flight, plus some friends had went the previous year and had a blast.

Cool. I went to the main one on Bradenton. They had one of his racquets from Wimbledon hanging right after he won. It really was an awesome summer. They hung Wimbledon 92 winner banners around the camp. Dream Team 92 that summer as well.

I went half-size down from my normal  US 10.5 to a US10.  They more more snug than the ATC IIIs are at US10, but I still believe I got the right size for me.

It's not a no-brainer choice though I think.. Good luck!

I'm very satisfied with the overall quality, but I never had the OG's to compare them to. I only had ATC 2's, 3's and Air Flares back in the day.

If feet are wide don't go half down. That's my advice. Definitely not a no brainer choice. And I think 12UK is a 13US, maybe I'm wrong though.
