Nike SB Zoom Kobe x Koston 1 – Launch @ Nike Vault | Event Recap

By - May 24th, 2011

A fortunate few joined pro skater Eric Koston at Los Angeles’ Nike Vault over the weekend for a special launch event, his very first signature edition. A life-long fan of the Los Angeles Lakers, Koston thought of creating an unique edition when the opportunity arises. Needless to say, the outcome was a fusion between his new signature, the Zoom Koston 1, with Kobe Bryant’s own Zoom Kobe VI, or what is known now as the Nike SB Kobe x Koston 1. While the overall form is virtually the same as a regular variant, Koston asked that the upper of Zoom Kobe VI, including the reptilian-like layering be incorporated into the design, along with the familiar Lakers’ colorways of purple and yellow. Lined with a Lunarlon insert and new tread pattern, the Nike SB Kobe x Koston 1, like the rest of the Nike SB Zoom Koston 1, is a fully optimal kicks for skating. Though with only 24 pairs available worldwide, there is little doubt they’re in someone’s treasure trove now, safe and sound. via: SlamXHype
