Nike SB Spring 14′ Drop 2

Saturday, January 18th, 2014


Nike SB have already come through with a unique colour pallet on the 1st drop on the SS14 release including the Lunar One Shot which you may have already read about on our blog. The 2nd drop of the season introduces a revolutionary take on the best selling skate shoes from Nike SB, the Janoski & Koston 2 to create a unique shoe. Each design combines the key components from the Janoski and Koston 2 with running inspired elements from Nike’s Air Max and Free Run sole technology to create an innovative hybrid for skateboarding.




The Nike SB Janoski Max features a breathable, extremely lightweight synthetic mesh upper which is detailed with a faint camouflage layer. The outter sole is fused with the flexible Nike Free tread at the front, with Air Max style sole at the heel which will provide extra impact protection, the speckled sole really adds a splash of character to the shoe. Available in Midnight Navy/White and Crimson Red/White.

The Nike SB Koston 2 Max is a transformed take on the Koston 2‘s. As with the Janoski, the Koston 2 Max carries the same sole structure with the Free Run along the front outter-sole completed with Air Max rear sole. The new design features lightweight Hyperfuse and mesh construction while the combination of a Max Air heel unit and Free forefoot provides a flexible cushioning.
