Yes Eric Koston has one particular footwear project in the works with the Nike SB team that is intended more as an homage than a cutting edge skate sneaker, that would be the Nike SB Koston x Heritage. But that doesn’t mean that he’s abandoned said cutting edge skate sneakers, because he’s also got one of those in the works as well. Shown off at a Nike SB preview today in NYC was the Nike Eric Koston 2, a pair that looks to preserve the simple styling that made the first an instant classic, complete with some horizontal perforations that almost look like the looming Engineered Mesh technology. Click through for the some exclusive photos of the upcoming Nike Eric Koston 2 and tell us what you think in the comments below.
I think they just tried way too hard. It seems like a desperate move for a new model when honestly, I didn't think they needed one. Even then, they could have waited and put more thought into it. Technologically, one of the best skate shoes ever. Aesthetically, Joan Rivers.
Boy every time I read the comments on these sites it leaves me with a puzzled look on my face. It's like dudes don't know what Nike is about. Technology and progression it's that simple. I like what I see so far on these and I'm more than likely going to pick up a pair or two. The ones were cool, but it's not like they changed the skate shoe game, and these will probably see the same success.
