Sneaker News: What’s your sneaker rotation outside of skating?

Eric Koston: Free Runs. The new ones just came out on Nike iD with the Flywire – I wanted to make one but haven’t had a chance to yet. Pretty much any model of the Free Run…Flyknits – the ones on your feet are in pretty awesome condition!

SN: Yeah, kept these one ice for a year and broke them out at just the right time. [Wearing the HTM x Nike Flyknit February 2012 release]

EK: I was wondering how they looked that good…but yeah, I just got the HTM Chukka. I got a good “in” at Mercer so that’s how I got ’em! They’re so sick and i’m almost afraid to wear them. All the Flyknits these days – even the new Lunar One+ is sick. I wear Janoskis too.

SN: Have you tried skating in Flyknits?

EK: Haha definitely not yet, don’t think I will.

SN: But who knows – that’s the beauty of Flywire because all the heat we just mentioned is just the tip of the iceberg.

EK: Oh for sure – I don’t know how they would make something like Flyknit durable enough for skate, but it’s Nike and they’re going to push the envelope.

SN: So it seems you like that low-pro look with footwear?

EK: Yeah, definitely, but mostly because after skating, you just want to wear something comfortable and light. Sometimes slides too man, those new Solarsoft Mules with the Woven are amazing.
