Brian Anderson is easily one of the raddest living skateboarders in the world period. But we are definitely a bit confused about all the hype on the “BA Project.” Not because Brian Anderson couldn’t design some fresh ass kicks but because the ones that have been making the rounds on the interwebz look like some mid level pricepoint cross trainers.

Of all the Nike SB releases for March, out favorite is easily the purple and white edition of the Janoski. The Janoski is such a perfect shoe that we sometimes wonder if it will still be around when Stefan is 50 because we cant really imagine it ever being discontinued. Get a pair while you can at finer shops like Atlas. More looks after the jump.
