FYI the piping around the side panel is leather. That’s why I’ve never bought this shoe in any of its canvas/fleece colour ways.
Sadly Nike SB and Janoski himself refuse to comment on the status of the leather, or change their ways for vegans. So until then I will just assume the worst. Maybe you can have a little luck with their PR department? SB division seems to be some black ops mission in the Nike Empire.
Many outlets report the piping being leather. It’s a specular, textured material, widely reported as leather by stockists and never has been reported as synthetic. It’s not synthetic until proven leather.
