The Nike SB Janoski was first released in 2009, its original colour way which is now known as the OG Black / White - Gum Light Brown was the first brought to the skate shop shelves. Nike Skateboarding is widely known for its popularity with the SB Dunk, but the Janoski silhouette quickly became the most successful and recognisable shoe in the SB collection. Soon after that, all sorts of spin-offs came to light. Like the Mid-Top version and the Stefan Janoski Max it is fully equipped with the famous Air Max bubble on the heel, alongside the Stefan Janoski Slip, the Stefan Janoski HT (High Tape) which features a bigger/wider sole unit, and last but not least the AC EXP which was a version of the shoe that had velcro straps instead of laces. The silhouette was given a brief hiatus before its recent return, and now back shows no sign of slowing down, going down in history as one of the best skate shoes ever to be released under the Nike umbrella.
