Traditional deck shoes share a common design wherein the lace is worked into the ankle collar for superior stability in wet climates when compared to your standard horizontal bottom lace. The Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski eschewed this build in favor of a more traditional sneaker-style lacing system and kept the boat shoe personality, this new pair, then, perhaps the ‘ultimate’ Janoski lowtop.
