Since debuting in 2009, Nike SB‘s Janoski has become one of the world’s most quintessential pieces of skate footwear due to its unique boat shoe-inspired shape and go-anywhere nature. Now, it’s set to evolve with a sustainable Flyleather RM makeup. With an upper made up of at least 50% recycled leather fiber, the shoe is the latest piece of Nike‘s push towards sustainability — and practices circular design principles in an understated fashion.

The Janoski Flyleather RM’s debut colorway is a soft “Island Green,” with the upper material flipped inside-out for a feel that’s soft and suede-like to the touch. Laces are constructed of recycled materials and even the white Swoosh graphics are mindful of materials — using just enough thread to show the signature check’s shape. Tongues retain a signature Stefan Janoski fabric patch, Zoom Air is loaded in the heel, and speckled NikeGrind gum midsoles/outsoles are thinned out in select areas for a more lightweight, broken-in feel.

Nike SB’s environmentally conscious Janoski Flyleather RM is set to release via the Nike webstore and select skateshops on September 7. A retail price has yet to be announced.
