SN: So golf is clearly a theme for the shoe – when did that start and why is it so important to you?

EK: You know, I’ve been golfing for so long, and people just don’t seem to know that! I’ve been golfing forever. Like the first shoe, we did the Kobe, because i’m such a huge fan of his and of basketball. Golf is another thing that we want to tell a story with.

SN: Will we see like the Koston x Tiger shoe like the Koston x Kobe last year?

EK: Ah I wish. Hopefully – that would be dope.

SN: Something along the lines of that red golf shoe in the The Legend Grows video?

EK: That red shoe is just a promo but it’s going to release later. Ideally it was going to be around this time, but manufacturing is a bit different so we couldn’t get it on time. It has that crazy snakeskin upper with Tiger Sunday Red and it’s on the Lunar golf-spike with a real tech-ed out sole. That one’s not going to be sold – it’s just a promo for friends and myself.

SN: Fair to assume the Koston 3 is already in the works. Any chance you can give us a hint?

EK: Would love to, but they’ll kill me haha. But there’s a lot of stuff for SB coming out, like the Project BA, P-Rod’s next one, and some other neat things that even I as a fan of Nike am really impressed by.

Carboy using Copics! Almost everyone uses prismas, but I think Copics makes a much better product.
