You’ve heard of skaters appropriating Dunks and Air Jordan’s for wood pushing purposes, but what about tennis models? Even if there isn’t as big a historical precedence team rider Gino Iannucci is still doing just that with his Nike SB Challenge Court, a model that’s been celebrated so far but unfortunately a little slim on colorways. Ramping up the available offerings is this, a clean black and purple pair that again sticks with the mostly suede formula for the upper. Click through to get some all around shots of the Nike SB Challenge Court in black/court purple/sail and take note that Flatspot has got em now and your local account should follow suit soon enough.

Nike SB has most famously pulled from the Basketball sector of Swoosh lineage when it comes to appropriating models into the world of skateboarding, with the Dunk enjoying a long tenure as the most buzzed-about silo in the lineup. This time around it’s a tennis model that’s doing the cross-over, more specifically the John McEnroe special the Nike Challenge Court that gets revamped with an SB designation for OG team rider Gino Iannucci. This quick promo spot links the two up, showing Gino rolling around NYC in the Nike SB Challenge Court only to eventually stumble across the initial pioneer of the silhouette (who manages to keep cool when he sees the similar sneaks). Click through to check out the Gino Iannucci x John McEnroe x Nike SB Challenge Court commercial as well as some background from Nike INC on how the project came to be.

Nike SB Challenge Court – Black

August 19th, 2012 by | 1 comment

nike sb challenge court black Nike SB Challenge Court   Black

Yeah a couple of guys like Stefan Janoski and Eric Koston are seeing their sneakers stripped of the Nike SB branding, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a net loss in models under that umbrella due to some other guys adding silhouettes of their own. The Nike SB Challenge Court comes from team rider Gino Iannucci, a slightly tweaked version of the John McEnroe classic that he took with him to Wimbledon in 1984. Up next for the silhouette is this all black pair, one whose perforated sections and lights out colorway should certainly be familiar to those who have been into Nike SB’s for a while now, the set up very reminiscent of his Dunk Low release from 2002.

Nike SB Challenge Court – Swan – Gorge Green

The Dunk was good enough for the Original 7; it was good enough for Ultraman and good enough for Nike SB, including Swoosh skateboarding veteran Gino Iannucci who famously penned several colorways over the past decade.  Now Gino gets his first SB pro model, a silhouette that was good enough to help John McEnroe capture the 1984 Wimbledon crown (just a few months before the Dunk debuted).  So the Nike SB Challenge Court has a tremendous pedigree, and thanks to LunarLon cushioning and this VNTG-like colorup that suggests a bunch of other simple treats on tap, its future appears accordingly bright.  Click through to see the subtle differences between these and the Nike Sportswear version, let us know how the Challenge Court SB compares to Nike SB’s other revived court kicks and stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability.  Photos: SM

As usual, Nike pulled out all the stops in creating a platform for its products, using a science laboratory as the unifying theme. Check out the complete showcase below and let us know what sticks out to you the most, and stick with Sneaker News for more Nike Skateboarding news and info. via Dunkbar.

Nike SB Challenge Court

December 19th, 2011 by | 2 comments

Nike SB veteran Gino Iannucci’s Dunk Low Pro designs are fondly remembered relics from the orange box era and his ‘Band Aid’ was sufficiently popular as to spawn another very similar design years later.  So why after a decade of sliding and grinding for the Swoosh hasn’t Gino gotten a signature shoe of his own?  Riders like Omar Salazar, Eric Koston and Paul Rodriguez have all reaped the benefits of a LunarLon-cushioned signature over the last year, and soon Gino will join the bunch, but in his typically understated style.  The Nike SB Challenge Court doesn’t bear Gino’s name and is more of an unofficial ‘pro model’ than a true signature, but his design touches are all over this Court Force-meets-Harbour Mid built in suede and mesh with a sole that looks like it could have been copied from the Air Jordan 1, OG Dunk traction pattern and all.  SB brought back the Bruin, then Nike 6.0 answered wth the LeShot and now we have the Challenge Court SB; which of Nike’s classic basketball or court shoes might be the next to parlay into a skate shoe?  Gino’s is the next up, and you can see more of what to expect from the Challenge Court in 2012 by clicking on the jump below.  via N-SB
