Nike SB take a more sublte approach to this year’s ‘420’ release, this time working on an understated make up of what has easily been the best received SB model over the last 12 months with the ‘Bonsai’ Stefan Janoski.
SB have traditionally released a new marijuana-inspired model on or around April 20th for some time now, with the Todd Bratrud designed ‘Cheech & Chong’ and ‘Skunk’ Dunks being some of the most notable. This year, a birch suede Janoski with noble green stitching and piping, on top of a gum sole, represents a less obvious nod to the unofficial US holiday, and a much more wearable alternative.
The clean Janoski silhouette is complimented by the minimal colourway, making for one of the finer SB releases so far this year. As a quickstrike release, the ‘Bonsai 420′ Janoski is available in-store-only from select Nike SB retailers now, including Consortium.
