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.

Though the release itself wasn’t a surprise with European retailers having already distributed their pairs over a month prior, the Kobe Bryant x Nike SB Koston 1 did begin hitting US Nike SB spots last week without a whole bunch of noise after that initial event at Nike Vault in May.  But West Coast sneakerheads are in luck, as you’ll be able to head down to Paulie Shore’s favorite SoCal locale, where Paul Rodriguez’ Primitive skateshop will have the Kobe x Koston 1 on hand starting at 11am today.  Click through to get a closer look then rush out the door and head to Primitive to grab your pair right now.

The ‘Tiffany’ colorway from 2005′s Diamond Supply Co. x Nike SB Dunk Low is one of Swoosh Skateboarding’s legendary and most oft copied colorways, this latest model also happening to be connected to one of the legends of modern skating.  The Nike SB Eric Koston 1 looks quite impressive in a combination of Paradise Aqua and Slate Blue that evokes memories of that blinged-out grail, a black/grey design coming along as a no-nonsense alternative.  Click through to see more angles and stick with Sneaker News for the exact release dates for these August drops.  via Kasina

Nike LunarLon Cushioning With Eric Koston

nike lunarlon eric koston video summary Nike LunarLon Cushioning With Eric Koston

Lunar, meet griptape. Nike’s LunarLon cushioning emerged from Nike’s Innovation Kitchen and burst through the initial testing phase to become one of the most successful comfort technologies in recent memory. Shoes like the Nike Lunarglide and LunarTrainer have been heralded as some of Nike’s most comfortable running shoes ever, so when Eric Koston was consulting with Nike footwear engineers, he made Lunar a ‘must’ for his first signature shoe. The resultant effort was the Nike SB Zoom Koston 1, which combined Zoom Air with Lunar to form one of the most lightest and skate-ready performance shoes ever created by the Swoosh. Check out this neat video of Nike Lunar in skate action and let us know if you’ve worn the SB Zoom Koston 1 yet.

By the point European retailers began selling theirs in late May, the latest word on the Kobe Bryant x Nike SB Koston 1 was that the US drop date was slated for June.  The midway point of the year came and went but the only US Kobe x Koston drop was at Nike Vault at Staples Center in LA, so news of the snakescale-textured general release edition hitting Nike SB retailers comes as both a surprise and overdue.  And despite the late drop, timing is indeed of the essence with this one as Michigan’s Premier reports their stock is already sold out, so click through to see more angles and check with your local Nike SB retailer ASAP or snag a pair now on eBay.

Nike SB Koston 1 – Spring 2012

June 20th, 2011 by | 1 comment

nike sb koston 1 spring 2012 1 Nike SB Koston 1   Spring 2012

Eric Koston’s first Nike SB signature sneaker is also Swoosh skateboarding’s first LunarLon cushioned design, and it will begin its second year with a collection scheduled for spring of 2012. The Nike SB Koston 1 keeps it simple as always, the shoe’s one-piece suede upper and unique two-tone outsole allowing for potentially hundreds of simple yet satisfying palettes.  Two such colorways just so happen to be slated for Q1 of next year, with one going the earthy route and another vaguely reminiscent of the Chun-Li Dunk Low SB from last year’s Street Fighter Pack thanks to a gold toe complimenting its otherwise Dodgers-esque getup.  Click through for closer views of both and stick with Sneaker News for updates including the US release dates.  via N-SB
