The Todd Bratrud-designed series of "420" inspired shoes has become a Nike SB springtime tradition. And several Bratrud designs in the series - Cheech & Chong, the Skunk Dunk, have been among the most sought-after SB releases in recent years. For 420 2012, Nike SB has given Bratrud the boat shoe-derived Stefan Janoski to work with - a shoe which already has some history with reefer culture. The California-based artist has taken the gum-rubber sole used on some of the more popular Janoski releases, and matched it to a bone suede upper. Hunter green serves as the complimentary color, used for piping on the midsole and upper, and for laces and tongue tag. Overall, less of a heady vibe than the past Bratrud 420 designs - Nike did catch some mild flak for the Cheech & Chong release - but by any measure a solid release for fans of the Janoski. Check out images after the jump, and stay tuned for a release in late April 2012. via: N-SB.
