Come January 18 in Melbourne, the Australian Open will begin. Nike has a rich history in tennis and for the occasion, they’ve released two colorways of the Nike Tennis Classic Ultra.
Very similar in shape and build to most other classic tennis shoes from FILA, le coq sportif, and adidas, these Nike Quickstrikes showcase simple perforated suede uppers inspired by Nike Tech Challenge II colorways. However, the suede is actually overlaid a breathable knit upper. The Nike Tennis Classic Ultra also features injected Phylon midsoles for lightweight cushioning. The insoles flaunt NikeCourt branding at the heel.
The two colorways are ‘Light Bone’ and ‘Ocean Fog’ and they’re available at Livestock in Canada for $120 USD and nike.com for $125 USD. Thoughts? Share them below.
