Perhaps a first in the world of signature shoes, Nike SB rider Shane O’Neill receives his own signature take on the Stefan Janoski, dubbed the Zoom Janoski High Tape. Not a high-top silhouette, the “high” in the name refers to the extra high midsole walls that edit out the usual stripe on the design. The upper stays true to the original Janoski silhouette, built in a full suede upper with a low-key look in black, white, and red; “A classic, mellow colorway – nothing too crazy, just a clean looking shoe that I’d want to skate”, according to O’Neill.
