Above The Board: The Zoom Janoski Low

Oh, you can land a trick? Several? Congrats, guy. But with the way you’re skating, you won’t be doing it for long. The Nike SB Zoom Janoski Low can change all that and that’s why comedian JB Smoove just wants to know: What’s Up With These Shoes?

So you call yourself a skateboarder? Where do you get off? Yeah, we see you skating your favorite spots but you end up spending more time shredding ice for your injuries than shredding the spot. You go hard, but you don’t need to land hard. Don’t you want some comfort?


Nike SB rider Blake Carpenter takes to the street in the Nike SB Zoom Janoski Low not only “because it's tight looking and Stefan's my boy,” but also because of the shoe's impact-muffling responsiveness.


JB Smoove is known to give some wild advice, but his thoughts are pretty sound on this one. "Think about who has the guts to take flight from the top of a row of stairs and fly through the air not knowing how they're going to land.” 

If you don’t fear the unknown, why fear technology? We appreciate the cavalier spirit, but think about yourself for once. Acting like you don’t need some high-class hydraulics under your feet makes you look like the skater of today. But what’s up with being the Skater of Tomorrow?

Think of the Nike SB Zoom Janoski Low as your own personal time machine. With shock-dampening Nike Zoom Air technology in the heel, rough landings will be a thing of the past. Pair that with durable suede uppers and street-approved boardfeel and you're ready for a trip to 2099.

"You guys don’t want help? You don’t want something good for you? These shoes are a prescription for your feet: Take two daily." - JB Smoove


The Nike SB Zoom Janoski Low is available now at select Nike SB retailers everywhere except North America, where it will go on sale on and in select Nike SB retailers beginning July 29.
