Look, we’ll be the first to admit that no one really likes change or anything new in this industry of ours. There’s a reason retro Jordans continue to dominate (whattup Bred 1s) and basic logo t-shirts will always be the most popular Stussy prints we stock. There are those rare moments of ingenuity that pop up and make you take note though. For me personally, it was when the whole Free Run thing started coming through from Nike a few years ago.
The sportswear giant looks set to mix things up again with the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max which combines the best parts of Nike’s bestselling skateboarding shoe with some more technical/running inspired elements from their illustrious Nike Air Max catalogue. Breathable mesh, Max Air cushioning and Free flexibility are all added to this new take on the Janoski. We’ve seen these in the flesh and are legitimately excited for next month’s drop. Stay tuned for more updates!
