Since pro skater Stefan Janoski first hooked up with Nike SB years ago, we’ve been treated to a steady drip of hit collaborations. From those early Janoski “Pacific Blue” silhouettes, to the more recent Max “Cherry Blossoms“, their success can perhaps be pinned on a fearlessness towards trying something new. The upcoming Nike SB x Nike Football Janoski Zoom is no different.
Releasing ahead of the 2016 European Championships, the shoe looks like the offspring of a classic SB Janoski and the legendary Tiempo soccer boot. An all-black colorway and delicate detailing around the toe box area give the shoe a more sleek and monochromatic look than we’ve seen before. Nike believes skateboarding and soccer share urban roots and values, and it’s obvious to see how they’ve tried to mesh the two worlds.
Alongside the sneakers will be a monochromatic Dri-Fit soccer jersey in the same colorway.
The pack will be available on May 1 at select skate shops and the Nike webstore.
