Anyone who’s ever skated knows just how physically demanding the sport can be. Doesn’t matter if your just beginning and skating the box you made in your backyard, or a professional hurling yourself down a 20 set, the toll skating takes on your body is no joke. Today, Nike is looking to change the skate culture, by adding some prized technology into one of it’s most popular models to help cushion the blow and keep you skating for longer.
The Nike SB Lunar Stefan Janoski maintains the same aesthetic skaters have grown to love from this model over the years but upgraded it with a Lunarlon foam outsole to decrease the harsh impact when landing. Not to worry, as Nike designed the Lunarlon outsole with flexible herringbone outsole so there’s no sacrifice to grip or board control. The Lunar Stefan Janoski still keeps the suede upper from the original to ensure the shoe maintains the durability skaters have grown to expect from the Janoski.
The Nike SB Lunar Stefan Janoski will be available beginning tomorrow, May 10, at Nike.com.
