The Nike SB Stefan Janoski Black / White has superseded the Janoski Black / Black and is the new updated model for this classic black and white colour way. The B/W looks very close to the B/B, with a few subtle differences. The heel and ankle support are now made in toughened canvas. The Nike Swoosh is embroidered in white stitching and they now ship with two sets of flat laces, black and white for either look.
The Nike SB Stefan Janoski shoe is fast becoming as iconic as the man himself.
Although designed for skateboarding, all of the unique assets of this Nike shoe transfer to every day wear. It is made with a suede upper and a traditional autoclave construction (that's subjecting them to high pressure saturated steam for those not in the construction industry) which fuses the midsole and outsole for a low-to-the-ground fit and streamlined style. In short, they're built to last.
The toes are perforated for ventilation, and they feature a moulded sockliner with a built-in Nike Zoom unit in the heel for cushioning. The ankle is a low-cut silhouette for non-restrictive fit but the upper is backed with foam for enhanced protection and comfort. Lastly the outsole is a tacky gum rubber with herringbone pattern for added traction.
Lets digest that simply. They are designed to be two things, comfortable and tough as hell.
Through all of the limited colourways, the Black/White design has remained perhaps the most popular, a classic for dressing up or dressing down. The black suede upper makes each pair unique, subtle black stitching and the Nike Swoosh embroidered on the side in bright white.
