Nike SB threw Stefan Janoski a So Cal gala in celebration of his new shoe. There were burlesque dancers, dancers with snakes, fine foods, free drinks, and tons of friends and supporters of Stefan in the house. The party was held at the Edison in Los Angeles and some of the people who came out to the event were: Lance Mountain, Geoff Rowley, Arto Saari, Omar Salazar, and many others. Nike even has the band Danielson play and they were an amazing addition to the festivities. Check out the photos and check out Transworld’s coverage of the event.
