Today we take a look at a DROP I was able to pick up myself on Saturday. The Stefan Janoski model of Nike SB has taken off like wildfire in 2011 featuring tons of different spins on the vulcanized boat shoe look. Word from the local skate shop (Subsect Skate Shop) is that the Janoskis are their best sellers for both skaters and nonskaters alike. This particular DROP is probably my favorite Janoski to date. It comes in the mid cut model and features a classic wingtip or brogue look on some absolutely buttery caramel colored leather. The silhouette sits atop an all white vulcanized sole with brown piping for detail. Finish them off with waxed brown laces and you’ve got a shoe that sends this portion of Nike Skateboard into 2011 with a positive finish. I love them for their versatility as well since they work with both an urban skater look and a casual khaki look. I actually broke them out right away for my wife’s holiday work party and they were snappin 50 year old necks all night! These DROPPED this past weekend and are a quick strike available through many SB retailers such as the previously mentioned Subsect and Michigan’s Premier.

This update contains one of the more unique DROPs we have featured this far, the Nike SB Janoski “Wino” release. This shoe has been see for months as a sample and it wasn’t quite determined if it was going to release. Word is out that it will DROP next month to select Nike SB retailers. When these first showed up in sample form most of the blogs referred to the stains as blood rather than wine until it was cleared up with pics of the cork on the insoles and the fact that the shoe’s namesake Stefan Janoski has parents that own a winery. The shoe itself features a cream canvas base with a wine red swoosh and splatters sitting atop a white vulc sole. I know a lot of people are awaiting this unique DROP next month.
