Nike SB x Wacko Maria Janoski Canvas OG QS Shoes in Linen, Black, Wheat and White. Designed in collaboration with Japanese label Wacko Maria, aka Guilty Parties, these statement leopard-print skate shoes offer a creative spin on the much-loved Stefan Janoski silhouette. Styled with sleek printed-canvas uppers with bold-black embroidered side wall Swooshes, these low-profile skate shoes remain true to form with their pre-built Zoom Air unit and their fully vulcanised construction. A cushioned ‘Nike SB x Guilty Parties’ branded sockliner provides desirable and resilient impact reduction, whilst the monochrome pipe-stripe foxing tape seals the midsole to the outsole with a sense of reinforced structural support. Auxetic toe-bumper rubber overlays ensure unwanted scuffs and scrapes are kept at bay, whilst the debossed ‘Wacko Maria’ exterior outsole branding delivers additional depth to the usually smooth rubber wall. Interchangeable flat-cotton laces secure the ‘Nike SB Janoski’ embroidered all-black tongue across the natural arch of the foot, with the padded, pattern-matched ankle collar supplying additional support as and when needed. In place of the usual ‘Nike SB’ embroidered branding across the heel, embroidered Japanese characters in crisp white spell ‘Paradise’ on the left shoe and ‘Tokyo’ on the right, sealing the collaborative design with active reference to the label’s heritage and home-city locale.
Established in 2005, Wacko Maria is an infamous Japanese label renowned for their uniquely expressive graphics and their honourable abstract inspirations. Pairing with like-minded visionary Nike SB to celebrate one of the most iconic skate-specific sneakers to date, the Nike SB x Wacko Maria Janoski Canvas OG QS Shoes pair fashion with undeniable skate function to produce a leopard-print profile that’s truly unrivalled.
