Nike SB Challenge Court

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.
