MICHAEL與 NIKE一向都是合作無間, 如早年的MR.SHOE系列, 2006年的木紋NIKE SB, 2008年替中國BMX國家隊專用NIKE BLAZER設計, 2009年初的NIKE AIR FORCE 1 等, 都是各位爭相搶購的產品! 而今次NIKE 也為慶祝 GARDENER 10週年紀念而與 Michael 合作推出了一雙名為 Michael Lau 10th Gardener Nike SB Stefan Janoski. 為何挑選這鞋款? MICHAEL 認為這鞋款沒有DUNK SB那麼笨重, 而且款式也比較時尚, 可以更容易配襯到更多衣服, 是NIKE SB內的少有款式, 鞋身的設計除了喜愛的木紋外, 左右腳的鞋外側分別印有09292009和 GARDENER的圖案, 鞋墊上也用上草綠色和印有GARDENER TENTH字樣. 是次在包裝上和木紋DUNK SB有點不同, 除了沒有木盒外也將附送的LA FAT改為NY FAT, 而NY FAT有十種顏色是以隨機型式放入鞋盒內.

隨後與 MICHAEL 談到GARDENER 十年來的事, 其實在第一年就很想在美國舉行GARDENER的展覽, 因為GARDENER的主要概念是來自美國, 只是工作上時間不允許, 隨著帶著它們週遊列國展覽後, 終於在今年這個10週年, 美國加州公司MINDSTYLE 就和 MICHAEL合作在洛杉磯舉行10週年展覽會, 而且 MINDSTYLE也找來了三位朋友與 MICHAEL 合作推出聯名產品, 分別是The Hundreds, DLB 和 Slam x Hype, 而這3個單位的聯名產品中的特別配色也只會在洛杉磯的展覽會售賣. 除了聯名產品外, 今次展覽中還有售賣海報, 10週年版的LA FAT, NY FAT玩具, 一本內有齊全 MICHAEL 十年來的紀念書本, 還有是首次製造滑板給收藏家多一項選擇.
