The Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max mid skate shoes are everything you love about the standard Janoski, but with extra ankle coverage for protection from snake bites and added lateral stability. An Air Max unit cushions your heel, while a durable Hyperscreen layer at the toe allows you to pop the occasional ollie without causing a blowout. Skate hard, then keep your feet happy by letting them rest and recover in the Janoski Max mid skate shoes.
Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Herringbone Tread - The herringbone pattern is frequently used in basketball shoes for its ability to provide optimal traction on smooth surfaces.
Nike Free in Forefoot - This technology promotes natural motion in the forefoot for the ultimate in comfort and flexibility.
Elastic Gusseted Tongue - Lets you wear the shoe like a slip-on when laces are removed.
Air Max - Part of the Nike Air family, Air Max was designed to provide maximum impact protection during repetitive landings. Shoes with Air Max feature less midsole material and larger-volume airbags for lighter weight and maximum cushioning you can see.
Hyperscreen Toe - Nike's exclusive Hyperscreen overlay on the toe enhances durability.
