Continuing the tradition of a "4/20" inspired Nike SB the Bonsai Janoski has just been released. The 4/20 theme generally includes a strong marijuana influence or reference, and this years Janoski is no exception. While many people were disappointed by such a basic follow up to the Skunk Dunk High and Cheech and Chong Dunk Mid, others are feeling the simplicity. Check out the pics below and decide for yourself!

More about the Bonsai Janoski

While many Nike SB fans were expecting another high top skate shoe to represent the 4/20 holiday this year others are big fans of Nike's choice to use their most popular shoe, the Stefan Janoski. The "Bonsai" Janoski features an all suede birch upper with a gum sole. The green piping, swoosh, and laces are obvious references to marijuana and the birch, or off white, suede is a reference to rolling papers. While the hype isnt as big as last years, I'd be sure to grab a pair of these to add to any LEGIT SB collection.

Happy Birthday to the Skunk Dunk!

Just wanted to make a post in honor of the 1 year anniversary of the Nike SB Skunk Dunk High. This is probably the most popular Nike SB Dunk High release in the past few years, maybe even of all time. Released on 4/20/2010, this dunk has obvious references to the marijuana holiday, including a purple "stoned" skunk on the insole. These shoes look pretty wild but for the potheads out there, which happen to overlap largely with the sneaker collector crowd, this shoe is a must have.

As you can see in the picture, the shoe features a fuzzy green and purple material covering it. There are evenĀ  sparkling "crystals" mixed in to create a really obvious look. These dunks sold out all across the country as soon as they came out and shops still get calls about them. If you missed it, you might get lucky to grab a pair under $300 on eBay. Otherwise you'll have to hope that the delay of this year's "420" dunk makes it to the stores.

Nike SB 2011 4/20 Dunk “Cheech and Chong”

After months of rumors and no official confirmation, the 2011 4/20 Nike SB Dunk High quickstrike has finally been leaked. This year's 4:20 dunk features a Cheech and Chong theme. The shoe's feature a different back panel for each shoe, one being a bandanna to represent Tommy Chong and the other being a striped felt to represent Cheech's beanie (see picture below).

The Dunk features a white canvas that will slowly shred away when worn in or skated and reveals a green layer of suede underneath. It wouldn't be a 4:20 dunk without the weed reference thrown in there, and the "rolling paper" toecap is definitely an awesome addition to the shoe. These dunks will be one of the most exclusive shoes available this year, so if you want a pair, you might as well get to your local SB dealer a couple days early to avoid paying hundreds from resellers.
