A favorite amongst sneakerheads and skaters alike since its introduction in 2009, the Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski receives yet another appealing colorway, as its latest variation is a homage to “Mexico City.”
Particularly paying tribute to the Templo Mayor, which is one of the main temples of the Aztec empire located in Mexico City, the area has now been appointed as a burgeoning skate scene. Utilizing the new skatepark as the source of its inspiration, this latest SB Zoom Stefan Janoski inherits a predominantly Wolf Grey canvas upper with slight contrasts of White throughout to evoke the area’s concrete construction.
Complemented by Black hits adorning the laces and tongue, in addition to Red accents gracing its tongue tab and a thin band encompassing its midsole, the simplistic profile is supplemented by a crisp, White rubber sole unit. Final details are revealed in the form of customized insoles depicting the infamous localized sewer caps that punctuate the busy streets of Mexico City.
I’ve owned a few pairs of the SB Zoom Stefan Janoski and I’ve always adored its simplicity. This latest colorway is a nice, classic option and the theme is pretty dope. If you were waiting for a new version, this sneaker should be a top choice.
