Janoski and Nike SB – A Ten Year Anniversary
Realising the Janoski has been around for a decade is absurd. To think it went from a shoe people didn’t think would fit in the well established world of skate shoes to one you couldn’t miss at skate parks all over the globe. At a time when most shoes within the industry were still heavily directed toward maximum protection and durability, the genius that is Stefan Janoski had dreams of a new direction.
From such a stylish man, the shoe was obviously going to look the part. But it also had to assist the skateboarder with the feel and control of their board. Looking at almost every shoe that was cementing itself in popularity at the time in skateboarding, we have a lot to thank Stefan Janoski for. The Nike SB shoe has not only been amazing itself, but it has helped skaters realise that durability, support and board feel can come in a sleek and attractive shoe.
To celebrate the Janoski’s anniversary we have the Nike SB Janoski RM (Remastered). It’s the classic shoe you love but updated with a new, plush sockliner, and a flexible outsole for better board feel right out of the box. At $129.99 with a black/gum silhouette, what’s not to love?
