I'm glad I came across these Globe Sabres, haven't owned a pair of these for years, seems most skate companies and throwing out boring Vulc shoes left and right these days. I like Globe, even more, they brought back the classic "tongueless" design of the Chet IV's, you just slip them on and the airbags/padding hug 360 degrees all around your feet. It's so comfortable, feels almost like you're wearing slippers but they stay on your feet fine regardless of how loose the laces are, exceptionally breathable as well.

Unlike some other Globe styles, the Sabres are true to size. They are very durable!! You can go rock these shoes and wear them into mosh pits and they'd still hold up.  Found this one at Zappos and it's a great deal. It's a new pair of Globe Sabre in Black Gum colorway. Get them now! $76.

If you're in the Philippines, you can have Johnny air buy these shoes for you, I think you'll pay an extra 2k to have it shipped to your doorsteps. Or, you may sign-up on Kango Express (a much cheaper option - roughly 1K for a pair of shoes - you'll get a 20% discount also on your first shipment).

P.S. - Put my account number is KX001400 in the Referral Field during the registration process, so I'll get 10$ as a referral :)

Officially launched this month, the Nike SB Zoom Janoski RM features an outsole that’s lighter, more flexible and has a sleeker toe box, among other Janos. In creating his shoe, Stefan wanted the most minimally-designed skate shoe possible for maximum performance and board feel, where every part of the shoe was meticulously scrutinized.

A few days ago, Nike SB launched the first of many new styles and silhouettes of the Stefan Janoski Remastered (RM). These are mid, slip and AC models presented in grey colorway.


Just today, I'm really surprised to see these 2 colorful Jano RMs over @Nike AU for $130 (AUD). What do you think? Cop or Drop?



Tie dyed Nike SBs are nothing new. 5 years ago, we've seen the Janoski outfitted with that look in a tie dye pack Janos released in 2014. The pack consists of two pairs that manage to show a little bit of restraint as far as that DIY coloration is concerned. This year, Nike SB applies the ’60s aesthetic to the skate shoe staple again with the release of Nike SB Janoski Tie-Dye 2019. The boat build goes even wavier in this new version, drenching the canvas in crimson, blue, yellow, and black colorways. The pair sports contrast trim and clean soles, letting the tie-dye design get the full display. Now available at Nike AU for $105(AUD).


Nike SB’s Stefan Janoski, has had quite a momentous year as it celebrates both the entire line’s 10th year anniversary and the shoe’s surprising return. Honoring its decade long roots, Beaverton retroed Tiffany, the OG colorway responsible for the eponymous model’s overwhelming popularity. The Nike SB Stefan Janoski “Tiffany” plays on some other skateboard classics — namely the SB Diamond Dunk Low — though its inspired scheme opts for a subtlety only it can allow, utilizing the Diamond swoosh and branded tongue accents.

Construction mostly comprises of smooth suede upper with white contrast stitching adding dimension along the toe box, eyestay, and heel. Soles are typical of the sport staple while the rest shines through a much more lifestyle-driven lens. If you want to grab your pair, it is now available at 1991 Skate Shop AU for around 100USD.
