Nike SB drop this piece of goodness on us for Fall 2012 – the Challenge Court SB – in collaboration with Gino Iannucci. Taking the iconic Challenge Court tennis shoe worn by John McEnroe in 1984, the SB is faithful to the original, with the addition of a few technical details to adapt it to skaters’ needs. Among these additions are a reinforced upper and LUNARLON insole. Debuting in a total black colourway with a suede upper and leather heel, collar and Swoosh, they kind of remind me of a ’90s skate shoe, which is actually a good thing. They’ll find their way to select Nike SB retailers soon, including DQM.

    […] Done in collaboration with Gino Iannucci, this new Nike SB Challenge Court is slated for release this Fall.  Though the shoe was originally debuted in 1984, the modernized version includes some of Nike’s impeccable technology, such as a reinforced upper and an extra cushiony LUNARLON insole. Dressed in a tonal Black colorway, the upper is covered in suede, while leather is seen on the heel.  If you want to grab a pair, they will be available soon at Nike SB retailers.  via: SxH […]
