We knew Nike was cooking up something good for their long-time team rider Eric Koston when we showed you this pair of Canyon Purple/White Koston 1's last month, but now we get to double-down on that excitement with an official look at this newest take on his signature shoe. While much of the silhouette's base hasn't changed since the first model, which is characterized by a light and simple low-top look, the Koston 2 adds increased breathability with perforations built into the black suede and mesh upper and heel. The release begins with a pink accented colorway (although more will follow), which touches the Swoosh and the Nike branding on the tongue, but its the drop-in Lunarlon sole that is the easiest to overlook until you experience its comfortable ride. Look for these at select Nike SB retailers beginning April 1st for $90.
Release Date: April 1st, 2013 (Monday)
