Nike SB Eric Koston Signature Model


Eric Koston created his place in the skateboarding Hall of Fame by a solid stint as a young buck playing the big handrail game, and cemented that place by maturing into an icon of smooth skateboarding style. Koston has also emerged as one of the most design-forward members on the athlete side of Nike's SB family. He has shown a true interest in the design side of Nike's SB engineering process - in an early video for SB, he weighed in on the variations in rubber compounds used in Dunk soles, and he was an early adopter of the technical Zoom FP. Now Koston's first dedicated pro model shoe under the SB umbrella is set for release this summer, and it incorporates Koston's appreciation for technical enhancements - with a double Lunar insole and nearly one-piece upper - and his appreciation of the classic - with styling cues taken from the Bruin. Three colorways are slated for the initial release, including one based on his Thailand Dunk Low. Check them all out after the jump, along with a detail of the double Lunar sole, and stay tuned for detailed release info. via: Kix-Files.
