A Leopard Print Covers This Wacko Maria x Nike SB Stefan Janoski

The adidas and Air Jordan releases arriving later this year will include this collaboratively designed Wacko Maria x Nike SB Stefan Janoski. It is the first time that Nike has collaborated with the Japanese streetwear brand. This year, Jordan Brand has released some rather unique iterations of the low-cut, skateboarding sneaker. It all started with a camo-covered iteration and another mid-top variation with fuzzy suede uppers, both of which debuted arrived at retailers in February. A “Golden Beige” and a “Multicolor” iteration hit the shelves last month. More recently, Jordan Brand also released a Premium “Desert Camo” iteration of the SB Stefan Janoski earlier this month.

It was back in 2004 when Atsuhiko Mori and Keiji Ishizuka launched Wacko Maria. Both of them happen to be former J1 League football players and teammates. Before introducing the streetwear label, Atsuhiko and Keiji opened the Rock Steady bar, which is currently the Wacko Maria showroom. Today, Wacko Maria is recognized as a cult brand since it brings together genuine Japanese craftsmanship with inspiration from art, design, film and music. Atsuhiko and Keiji are particularly inspired by American culture, film, music, photography and women. Wacko Maria has its own line of ready-to-wear, contemporary urban apparel featuring classic menswear tailoring as well as other accessories.

As mentioned, this is the first time that Nike and Wacko Maria have teamed up, but it seems that their first collaboration is going to be quite successful. The uppers of the SB Stefan Janoski are made up of suede and as you can see, Wacko Maria has entirely covered it in faded leopard print. However, its inner lining, laces, Nike “Swoosh” logos and tongues are all covered in contrasting Black, while its thick rubber soles are plain White. In addition to the “Nike SB” and “Stefan Janoski” branding, its heels feature Japanese characters and Wacko Maria’s “Guilty Parties” catchphrase can be spotted over the insoles.

Unlike upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019, there is currently no release date for this leopard print-covered Wacko Maria x Nike SB Stefan Janoski, so keep checking back for more updates.

Nike Upgrades The SB Stefan Janoski Max Mid For The Coming Fall Season

Nike has made a name for itself by whipping up hybrids of some of their most renowned sneakers. The latest hybrid Nike release 2015 has already arrived in the form of an upgraded version of Nike’s leading skateboarding model. Apparently, Nike had no intention of keeping sneakerheads waiting because they have already dropped the SB Stefan Janoski Max Mid.

Nike-SB-Stefan-Janoski-Max-Mid-Baroque-BrownOver the past couple of years, Nike has dropped a plethora of colorways of the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max and now the silhouette has received somewhat of a remix treatment. Considering that the rainy fall season is arriving, it is not surprising that Nike has significantly upgraded the SB Stefan Janoski Max to match the impending weather.

The first and foremost upgrade that has been made to the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max is more than obvious, considering that this latest iteration now appears to be a mid-top sneaker. Instead of its signature mesh or suede construction, the upper of this sneaker also seems to be made up of tweed, which will prove to be durable and rugged enough to resist the weather.

As a result, the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max Mid ends up looking like a boot, while ensuring comfort through the combination of Air Max and Free. Apart from the tweed material covering the upper, the sneaker also sports leather accents. Finally, hints of Bright Orange and a contrasting White Free midsole add the finishing touch.

NIKE_JANOSKI091615_7_1024x1024The bottom line is that the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max Mid is an ideal all-purpose and casual sneaker that has been specifically designed and upgraded for the fall season. Sneakerheads can even cop it for a price of $130 at select Nike retailers and online venues like Rock City Kicks.
