The 80 Greatest Sneakers of the '80s

58. Nike Challenge Court

Year Released: 1984

During the mid-'80s, the "court shoe" definition was somewhat all encompassing. There was no real need for separate shoes for the likes of squash and volleyball (although those were available), and there was no shame in rocking what was meant to be a tennis shoe on the basketball court or vice-versa (word to John Lucas). The Challenge Court was an all-business tennis shoe that saw action in other realms — and has since been revived as part of Nike SB.
