The nicknames we gave each other as kids spilled over into how we talk about sneaker colorways a long time ago, so even as this pair appears to whiff on the wintertime snowman connection, it would indeed be appropriate to call this Nike SB Koston 1 sample ‘Frosty’. That’s what Eric Koston’s friends often call him, and on this quite literally Brian Anderson-penned mockup, we flash back ot the good old days when notebooks, school desks and even sneakers (especially midsoles and simple canvases like the Chuck Taylor) served as a sketchpad for familiar icons. In this case, it’s a mashup of popular music acts mostly from the ’80s and ’90s, highlights including Tupac and BIG, a presumably ironic Ratt shoutout and a G.G. Allin tie-in adding some hardcore street cred to this faded pink ‘Girl Talk’ of a Koston 1. Let us know what you think after checking out more images of the most unique Eric Koston Nike SB design to date and stick with Sneaker News for more rarities.
