Nike SB Stefan Janoski Mid Premium ‘Inuit’
We’ve seen a huge variety of sneakers influenced by classic casual and winter styles in recent years including duckboots, wingtips and chukka boots, just to name a few. Two of the very most popular of these appropriations have been boat shoe sendups and hiking/work boot-inspired looks, and each typically transforms its recipient design so significantly that there’s been no overlap. But with the newNike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski Mid Premium ’Inuit’, we’re starting with a shoe built on the foundation of the classic Sperry Docksider, so it’s not all that much work to make them look way warmer thanks to metal D-ring eyelets and a fuzzy navy blue sockliner to match the leather upper. These will arrive at select Nike SB retailers as one of January 2012′s Quickstrike releases, though if the past week or so has taught us anything, it’s that next year’s kicks are releasing earlier than expected to cash in on the Christmas rush. This is one pair that’s well worth your hard earned cash as well as your attention, so click through to see more angles and stick with Sneaker News for word on the US release date. via Dunkbar
