Nike SB Floral Janoski Release tomorrow + more

by Steph McGilvra on September 26, 2013

Tomorrow is the day for Janoskis. We will be releasing the second in the 3 part series of digital floral print Janoskis. This color features more blue and brown tones that the previous color, but still keeps the white outsole and foxing. We do have more pairs this time around than the first floral release, so we can make people with a wider range of sizes happy! That being said, quantities are still limited. The release will start when we open at 11am, and be first come, first serve. Check out the pics below.
















Aside from the Quick Strike release above, we have gotten some other shoes in this week, that we are really excited about! New Balance Numeric skate shoes are finally here. They arrived about 3 months later than we expected but, we are still very please with the quality of the finished product. We have several reasons why we are excited about this company and their product; First and foremost New Balance is an American company that is privately held by one family. Its not publicly traded, and as such it means they can make decisions about the products they make based on what they feel is good for the brand, not because they are beholding to stock holders or a stock ticker. Second we like the fact that New Balance makes 30% of it's footwear in the United States. The skate footwear is not made here, but if the product does well enough, they will bring some of that production stateside. Thirdly, when we saw the samples way back in January, we were blown away by their quality. A lot of samples we see will have incorrect finishing details or just seem to be put together in a sloppy fashion compared to the finished product. The New Balance Numeric samples were dialed! The fit and feel was correct and over all the line was solid. Below are a few shots of the shoes we received yesterday.




























Above is the Stratford. It features a one piece suede upper. Multiple perforations on the side panels for breathability and a cushy EVA insole.













Above is the Logan. It features a single piece synthetic upper that is made of TPU bonded PU. The synthetic material is more durable than suede and helps to make for a lighter weight shoe. The tongue is mesh and the insole is EVA for great impact cushioning. 













Above is the Quincy. It's got a traditional vulcanized outsole. So it will be a little more flexible and give more board feel than the other two models, but the sole won't be quite as durable. The upper is suede and tongue is canvas. 

All in all this is a line that has a little something for everyone. We are still waiting on a couple of other models to show up, and we will post pics when we get them.
