Back in ’09, most skate shoes were breadloaves. Nike SB pro Stefan Janoski set out to break the mould. He wanted his signature shoe to be flatter, lighter and lower, so he could feel everything underfoot. “Make my feet bleed”, he told us. We gave him a super-thin vulcanised sole and a collar so low it needed that iconic heel band to stay in place. We also gave him responsive Nike Zoom Air to keep his feet from bleeding for real. The result showed Stefan’s no-nonsense personality in every detail—right down to the motto on his old-school patch.
