Part of the Nike Skateboarding Eric Koston 2 Media Launch Experience included an extended sit-down with the man of the hour, Eric Koston, and the designer behind the sequel, Shawn Carboy. Both were ready and waiting to fill us in on the journey from Koston One to Koston 2, but this time around, we prepared a broad range of questions that didn’t focus entirely on the shoe – mainly because we already talked about the design of the shoe back in October of 2012. So what could there be to talk about? There’s some interesting info spilled by Koston and Carboy, so read on below.
So what could we talk about, if not completely about the Koston 2? Well, plenty, if you calculate in the whole “The Legend Grows” ad with Tiger Woods and other Nike A-Listers, being the “Michael Jordan” of skate, the history of Nike SB as a whole, the future of Nike SB inside and outside the walls in Beaverton. Wish we had more time to chat more, but we’re confident that we’ll cross paths again. Read our interviews below, starting with our chat with Eric Koston, and check out the Nike Koston 2 right now on Nikestore.com.
