Black suede and gum soles have been a skate-shoe staple for as a long as skate-specific shoes were in existence. It’s simple a well-composed colorway tailor-made for the sport that does quite a number on the feet, which is why you’ll see plenty of avid boarders sporting black suede kicks with some well-earned wear and tear around the upper. Eric Koston knows a thing or two about putting his feet through some work, which is why the folks at Nike designed the Nike Eric Koston 2 with his exact specifications in mind while giving the shoe some great colorways like the “pre-heat” Digital Pink”. Of course, Black/Gum is what some skaters look for exclusively, and it looks like the classic colorway is making its way back on the Koston 2.
