UPDATE: Nike SB's transatlantic union has finally started hitting retailers across the pond. Peep the new images above for a closer look at the premium detailing on these all-leather beauties. Find them now at select Nike SB stockists, including German retailer Blowout.
When it came out in 2009, Stefan Janoski's Nike SB was only the second signature model gifted to a skater, the first being the inimitable P-Rod. Given its 'For Daily Use' slogan, the shoe was disseminated en masse and quickly became ubiquitous amongst skaters, which is why premium editions like this are that much more special.
This Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski Elite 'SB x FB' brings Nike Skateboarding and Nike Football together – paying homage to The Beautiful Game with classic football cleat stylings on the toe box. The shoe comes with a premium leather upper that will endure both street football and street skating, and has Zoom Air in the heel for added comfort. Matching DriFIT football jerseys will be released with the pack with either 'France', 'USA' or 'Nike SB' emblazoned across the front.
The Nike SB Zoom Janoski Elite 'SB x FB' will be released on May 1 at select skate stores and on Nike online.
