Nike builds on the popularity of the Tailwind and Daybreak with the return of the Challenger for 2020. The updated version is modeled after the original Challenger pattern order from Blue Ribbon Sports with an upper mix of nylon, suede, and mesh. The company has also widened the heel to increase comfort while the upper's variety of splits and panels allows Nike to toy around with bold color options such as a heritage-inspired red and blue and new colors like cream and sail (above). 

Look for the Challenger 2020 very soon on or the Nike App.
