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.
