The Andre Agassi & Nike partnership is being renewed, to the delight of every single person who’s ever seen the shoes Andre laced up back in the prime of his career, most notably the Nike Air Tech Challenge series.
Nike and Agassi announced the new agreement Monday, nearly 25 years after they first began a professional relationship. This latest iteration will focus both on Agassi and Nike’s love of tennis, and a devotion to getting kids more active and involved in sports.
Phil Knight, co-founder and chairman of Nike, expressed his excitement at getting Andre back on Team Swoosh.
“As one of the world’s greatest tennis players, Agassi embodied the passion, dedication and determination of the Nike brand. As a philanthropist and campaigner, he continues to share Nike’s commitment to inspire the young generation with his Just Do It spirit. We are honored to welcome him back.”
