Nike SB released the new version of their Janoski skate shoe but this time, it’s made from Flyleather. The latest release comes as part of Nike’s push for sustainability and search for circular design.
Being passionate about sustainability and recycling, Stefan Janoski (known for the Nike Zoom Stefan Janoski shoe model) along with fellow skateboarders made the journey from the US to our UK factory to see how Flyleather is made.
“We’re always keen to show our customers the process of how our sustainable materials are made and it was no different this time” said John Kennedy, ELeather CEO. John led the Nike SB team and skateboarders around the factory explaining how offcuts from the leather industry become a high-performance material used for production on some of Nike’s most iconic shoes.
Watch the video below of Stefan and the team touring our factory and see some of the amazing skateboard tricks they performed on the streets of London.
We were delighted to welcome to Nike SB team along with the skateboarders and Stefan Janoski at our factory in Peterborough. They were all pleasantly surprised to see the scale of the manufacturing operation and just how much leather offcuts we use in the production of Flyleather.
Stefan Janoski met with the team from CCS skate shop to put the Janoski Flyleather shoe to the test of performing 200 kickflips. See how they performed against another shoe in his range.
