WACKO MARIA and Nike SB have readied a lavish leopard-printed take on the SB Janoski to join their snakeskin-Swooshed SB Blazer Low. Using one of WACKO MARIA’s signature animal prints atop Stefan Janoski‘s popular boat shoe-inspired skate silhouette, the rambunctious collaborative design skilfully flirts with gaudiness while still retaining a street-ready look.
Leopard-printed uppers are build of sturdy, tightly-woven textiles and are dressed in a light tan tone. From toe to heel, this simple base is covered in brown and black leopard rosettes while black leather trim adds an air of elegance. Tongues, laces and Swooshes alike are done up in in black too, the first of which also features a large fabric Janoski tag.
There’s plenty of co-branded detailing to be had as well: each heel is embroidered with a duo of Japanese lettered graphics, and Zoom Air-equipped insoles feature WACKO MARIA’s familiar “Guilty Parties” hit. Trim white midsoles add an embossed WM graphic on the lateral rear, and traditional gum outsoles finalize the style.
The WACKO MARIA x Nike SB Janoski is set to release on Nike SNKRS come October 31. The MSRP is set at $95 USD.
