Nike SB Stefan Janoski
Since its very first edition, Flatspot has been the shopping Hub for all of the latest Nike SB Stefan Janoski shoe releases. In our opinion the Janoski was the first original shoe that SB designed that became as iconic as the Dunk and Blazer SB releases before it. Stefan Janoski demanded a super slimmed down really skateable shoe that focused on board feel, control and comfort while creating a unique and relevant style with strong personal design references from golf and boating footwear. In contrast to previous Nike skate footwear, a simple single layer tongue and upper was employed with little padding around the inner heel, the simplicity accentuated by the first embroidered swoosh in the Skateboarding Nike range.
As default by design the Janoski upper quickly demonstrated durability via the un-complicated toe box with no stitching or excess panelling to blow out. The boat shoe vibe was brought through with the toe box stitching and leather laces, more prominent in the earlier releases. In recent seasons Nike SB has expanded the Janoski collection which now includes the new Lunar and Nike Air Max cross-overs of this now classic skateboarding shoe.
