Milwaukee folk punk band Violent Femmes has revived its fervent fandom since the group reunited in 2013. Among those fans is skateboarder Stefan Janoski, who’s releasing a special-edition shoe.

“Violent” and “Femmes” are separately chain-stitched on the lateral side of each shoe and the words from the group’s hit 1994 song “I’m Nothing” — which Janoski sings with the band on a version that releases with their newest album — are printed in Janoski’s handwriting on the tongue.

The Nike SB Zoom Janoski “Violent Femmes” releases August 15 on nike.com and at select retailers.

UPDATE
TheNike SB Zoom Janoski “Violent Femmes” is now available at Color Skates .
