words // Ian Stonebrook:
Much like the Michael Jordan changed the game of basketball, was an exception to the norm, and brought mainstream attention to the game, so too did Andre Agassi to tennis.
His rock and roll persona amped up the quiet game drawing the attention of the MTV generation and Hollywood elite. The man behind the racquet scored many endorsements over his career but none as big as Nike. His vibrant signatures changed the image of “tennis shoe,” adding color to a once dull genre.
In celebration of Andre’s 45th birthday, we wanted to take the time to dedicate our 10 favorite Nike shoes that he wore throughout his historic career.
Happy Birthday, Andre!

Bo knows tennis, but not like Andre. A young Agassi came into the game rockin McEnroe kicks much like Penny sported Mikes.
