Not posting a new shoe, but looking for a bit of help. I bought a pair of Janoski Max in Obsidian Blue for chilling in and I've noticed a problem with the leather in the left shoe (see the photos below). After just an hour of wear the colour seems to be coming out of the leather and the texture around the detail sticking appears to be beginning to flake. I wouldn't be bothered if this was a shoe I was skating, but it sucks that the left foot is getting tiger stripes after such little wear.

Has anyone else had similar problems with this shoe or other SB models? If so, did you manage to get it sorted by Nike? If anyone has an email of someone at Nike SB or there are some Nike staff lurking here, please could you PM me. I'd be really grateful.




Contact Nike Warranty on their site. They're covered up to two years. I've had a lot of recent issues with mismatched materials on my shoes and they straighten it out. You'll get credit for the full retail price of the shoe on their site. Personally I would stay away from any non-synthetic Nike SB for a while. Idk who their material supplier is but the suede they use is shit. Just look at those Kostons up there. Also the stitching around the Swoosh on the blue ones is fucked.

i've worked as a retoucher so i guess my eye is just trained to notice shit like that. the stragglers are what gave it away.

Hey those are good. The shoe itself looks good but the first few colorways don't give me much of a boner.  On the same note what's with the absence of the white/gum Janoski hyperfeels? Is that the next drop? I don't wanna wait (for our lives to be over)

Cool. So what's the deal with those white/gum ones?

someone probably already posted something along these lines, but does anyone else think that they're pushing all this hyperfeel stuff cause it's cheaper to manufacture than, say, a dunk mid

Hyperfeel has that pricepoint vibe. Kinda like the Emerica laced without ticks up the side.

Yes, that Koston Hyperfeel has a real pricepoint vibe at $150.

I'd bet on it. I'm almost sure the lunarlon gimmick was just rebranded PU foam to reduce the cost of the air zoom insoles.
Same for the one piece toe cap stuff. I guess It must be kinda harder to design, but once the sample are validated, the big scale production must be cheaper than shoes with panelling due to the reduction of operations and pieces. I guess Baravetski could tell us the truth.

Thanks McCly. I'll send them a message. You're right about the quality of those Kostons. They look like shit - stictching isn't straight.

Hyperfeel the way it's defined is actually just the same thing as what the Koston 1 was, they just have different insole foams and combos now. It's definitely in the same zone cost wise as a dunk or something similar.
