this shoe has lots of stitching but is still really good looking.
The sti insole it comes with made the shoe really tight,but i swapped em
with other ones and broke em in,now they fit fine with the insoles they came with.
Pros: comfy, true to size
Cons: tight at first, hard to keep clean

When the Janoski was first dropped, it was unlike anything before it. Never before had a skate shoe incorporated high-tech features, premium materials and a laid-back nautical-inspired design. This Nike SB icon is built with a suede, canvas or leather upper that features double stitched panels in key zones to stand up to your style of skate. The upper houses perforations over the forefoot to increase air-flow as well as an one-piece, longitude panel to supply streamlined support. A lightly padded collar surrounds the ankle for increased support while a Nike Zoom, low-pro unit sits below for increased performance. Located beneath the cushioning midsole unit is an ultra-flexible, vulcanized outsole that showcases a herringbone traction pattern for durability, superior grip and easy change of direction. Leather, suede or canvas upper with double stitching in key zones to help deter blowouts. One-piece heel-to-midfoot overlay for streamlined support. Lightly padded collar for ankle protection and comfort. Vulcanized sole construction increases flexibility. Rubber outsole with herringbone traction pattern for lasting grip.
 

I know canvas isn't durable,but what about the side panels?

I know canvas isn't durable but the color way i bought has only the side panels canvas, the rest is suede.
I was wondering if anybody that has skated a pair of Janoskis that had canvas side panels could tell me how durable they are.

The iconic Vans side stripe was introduced to the world in 1977 on the Vans Old Skool. Today’s skaters know the side stripe puts the Old Skool on par with some of the most durable and revered skate shoes ever built. Staying true to its roots after all these years, the Old Skool continues to drop fresh color updates. The Vans Old Skool is still going strong. Vintage, vulcanized rubber outsole construction. Vans’ own waffle grip sole for unmatched traction on the board. Combination suede/canvas upper.

Bobby Worrest's first signature shoe has arrived and this one's a low profile, fully padded beast. Suede/leather upper. Molded PU footbed for added comfort. System G2™ heel cushioning gel insert. Vulcanized gum rubber outsole. Imported.
 

Do these shoes run true to size?

these shoes do run true to size,its kinda hard to break them in at first,so i swapped the insoles for about two weeks until they were loose enough to switch em back

Slip into the Wino, kick back and watch the days skate footage get logged. Lightweight canvas or suede upper materials. Slim, low profile. Soft cushioned EVA footbed for superior comfort. Grippy outsole made of natural gum rubber. Suede or canvas upper materials. EVA footbed. Natural gum rubber outsole. Removable insole.
 

are these shoes true size or small or big

Yes, just about. I wear a ten and got a pair in size ten and they fit ok.
they fit even better if you put in insoles from other shoes, like an sti footbed that come in most emerica and etnies shoes.
