When you watch the visual artistry of Olympic gymnasts, divers and synchronized swimmers, it’s hard not to get upset that skateboarding has somehow yet to join the Summer Game schedule. Snowboarding works for the winter Olympiad, so why can’t a guy like Eric Koston be judged similarly to Shawn White (or Shawn Johnson, for that matter)? Until the IOC gets its act together, the next best thing is this new Nike Eric Koston One in Anthracite with Buff Gold accents, an impressive near-blackout whose subtle depth makes them a surprising must have at retailers like Flatspot.

You can put this model in almost any color way, & it's nice. Of of the dopest casual kicks in a long time. It's almost like a Cortez with a flat bottom.
@ChrisChen1 Skateboarding as an Olympic event wouldn't bother me at all. As a matter of fact it would get more kids interested in the summer games. What is one valid reason not to add it in the roster, and please don't come with that skateboarding is not a sport bullshit. It's like Black Starr pointed out your conditioning has been conditioned lol........
