Nike Eric Koston – Black – Gum

nike eric koston black gum 4 570x381 Nike Eric Koston   Black   Gum

Eric Koston’s Nike SB signature sneaker just arrived at retailers last month with a white upper and gum bottom, so while simply swapping to black would make for an equally satisfying design, the Swoosh would rather provide a bit more variety. So instead of this just coming off as the yang to that pair’s yin, this new Nike Zoom Koston 1 subtracts the ‘SB’ branding but adds details like a granite finish Swoosh and speckled outsole toe for a finished product that’s as close to ‘black cement’ as you can get without including Elephant print. Check them out in greater detail below, then find yours through select retailers like Premier.

Nike SB Eric Koston Heritage

You know that Air Max 90-infused Eric Koston signature we’ve been seeing with the big X’d out name?  Well, don’t worry about losing out on the AM90 flavor because that’s still totally intact, but you can also let your mind relax a bit with the far more convenient name, Nike SB Eric Koston Heritage.  The name accomplishes two primary tasks: fitting more readily on a box label, and ensuring that the box of which we speak is one with ‘SB’ branding (remember that Koston’s sig was the first depicted alongside the new SB/6.0 packaging).  This almost Air Max 95-like colorway joins the ‘Infrared’ edition we previewed last week; might we luck out and get a ‘Laser Blue’ or another beloved colorup as well?  Click through for more, let us know which one looks better so far and stick with Sneaker News for Eric Koston Heritage SB release info.  Photos: Dom DeLuca

Eric Koston proved upon the very launch of his first Nike SB signature sneaker that it could blend seamlessly with cutting edge basketball designs, and being the devoted sneakerhead that he is, Koston simply couldn’t stop there.  For his latest project, Swoosh skateboarding’s mad scientist reached back into the vaults for a model that debuted a few years before he turned pro, which feels like a lifetime given how many of our readers weren’t even born then.  The Nike SB Koston 1 x Air Max 90 offers a re-written trip back through history as we see the beloved ‘Infrared’ motif redone with added emphasis on suede for skating purposes.  The entire shoe is still under wraps, but after seeing the custom branding on the heel and lateral badges, we’re starting to get the sense of this as a unique and lovingly crafted project.  Stick with Sneaker News to view the Koston 1 x Air Max 90 in full and click through to see more in the meantime.

Eric Koston x Nike SB ‘Mr. Control It All’ Video

eric koston x nike sb mr control it all Eric Koston x Nike SB Mr. Control It All Video

Why exactly is Eric Koston driving a big white van full of young skaters to a mysterious looking building out in the desert?!  From the looks of the place on the inside as well as the ‘NSRL’ labeling you see on Koston’s computer console, it seems like we’re on the inside of the Nike Sport Research Lab, even though the outside shot looks nothing like the picturesque Mia Hamm building.  Inside the testing facility is what really matters, where ‘Mr. Control It All’ instructs new SB Rider (and recent Tampa Pro third-place winner) Sean Malto to shred in a pair of the new red/white SB Koston 1′s and warns Justin Brock to get ready because he’s next.  We get to see the Nike Eric Koston excel under high-tech testing conditions that measure the kind of variables that’ll make its sequel even better.  And speaking of building on Koston’s work, Eric will be tweeting missions over the next short while for skaters to complete and submit to @NikeSB with hashtag #MrControlItAll for a chance to win one fo eight special Koston prize packs starting on March 30th.  Click through to see your jumping-off point and stick with Sneaker News for updates.
