After reimagining its famed Challenger OG in both “Kumquat” and “Light Blue” earlier this year, Nike returns its focus to the retro silhouette, this time dipping it in a vibrant “Team Orange” color scheme.

Dominated by two shades that sit on the boundary of orange and red, each sneaker has a striking nylon mid-panel and contrasting lighter suede overlays. Navy then makes an appearance on the archetypal Nike Swoosh, as well as on the mesh toe box and inner lining.

In-keeping with the sneaker’s vintage aesthetic, a typical stripped back tongue arrives in a slightly off-white tone, while crisp white laces complete a look that sits on Nike’s quintessential Waffle sole that’s been dressed in all black.

Nike’s “Team Orange” Challenger OG is expected to drop early 2021 and will be available from the brand’s webstore.
