Featuring a minimal style and a molded sockliner with a built-in Zoom Air unit in the heel for cushioning, plus a rubber outsole that delivers maximum boardfeel, these Janoskis prove slip-ons aren't just for your 87 year old grandad named Lester, a man who once owned a, "real humdinger of a car" and often spent his childhood days, "down at the soda fountain playing jacks".
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
Cored Out Rubber Outsole - Interior of the rubber outsole is cored out in a honeycomb pattern for weight reduction and flexibility.
Herringbone Tread - The herringbone pattern is frequently used in basketball shoes for its ability to provide optimal traction on smooth surfaces.
Zoom Air Unit in Sockliner - Nike Zoom cushioning is incredibly thin and brings the foot closer to the ground for enhanced stability, especially during quick cuts and multi-directional movements.
After impact, the tightly stretched fibers inside the pressurized air unit quickly bounce back into shape, providing a super-responsive feel and improved awareness of the surface you’re on.
