nike sb koston 1 03 570x379 Nike SB Zoom Koston 1   Release Reminder

Tomorrow, Eric Koston will have officially solidified himself as one of the great Nike athletes that have left behind storied legends. Koston joins one of Nike’s newer wings – Nike Skateboarding – during a time where skating is viewed as no longer an activity for the rebellious and mischievous, but for the meticulous. Skating is as much an art form as it is a means of getting from point A to point B, and the Nike SB Zoom Koston 1 takes the classic skate shoe to another level, using Nike Lunar cushioning as the primary comfort agent. Three colorways are set to hit Nike SB retailers tomorrow, so take a look at this great set of detailed images courtesy of CtotheJL and hit up your local Nike SB account tomorrow, or snag a pair now on eBay.

It’s been two years since Eric Koston joined the Nike Skateboarding team, and since then, Koston’s been riding in a number of different Nike SB models like the Blazer CS, Blazer Low, and his Nike SB Dunk Low/High ‘Koston’ that dropped last year. He now has a shoe to call his own, one that is truly distinguished from the rest of the Nike SB line thanks to the LunarLon cushioning. A release event at the Nike Vault also allowed 24 lucky Koston fans to grab the super-limited Nike SB Kobe x Koston Humidor box, a rare set highlighted by the funky Kobe VI x Koston 1 hybrid shoe. But June 4th is the date to circle if you’re been excited about the first Lunar-cushioned skate shoe, so check out Nike SB retailers like Premier on release date to cop your pair, or go ahead and grab the Blue pair early on eBay.

koston kobe event recap summary Nike SB Zoom Kobe x Koston 1 Event Recap

Nike Vault in Los Angeles, CA opened its doors for the unveiling of the Nike SB Zoom Koston 1, Eric Koston’s first signature model with Nike Skateboarding since joining the team in mid-2009. Sneaker News has been providing details, colorways, and release info for the upcoming sneaker, but one recent report showed two funky-looking pairs of the SB Zoom Koston 1 that appeared to have a Kobe VI-inspired upper design. Turns out that Koston, an avid Laker fan, adopted the Kobe VI styling onto his signature shoe and came up with the Nike SB Kobe x Koston 1, which features the slithery Kobe VI upper with the LunarLon cushioned outsole. During the event, Koston spoke about his first signature shoe, his reason for using LunarLon, and the concept behind the Kobe VI-infusion, and a few lucky event-goers got a chance to walk away with a limited edition set, which was limited to twenty-four units. Continue reading for a nice recap of the event below courtesy of SlamxHype, and if you’re interested in buying one of the super-limited humidor box sets, check out the available listings on eBay.

nike sb koston lineup new summary Nike SB Zoom Koston One Collection

Nike Skateboarding is ready to release the Nike SB Zoom Koston One Collection, Eric Koston’s first pro model with Nike SB. A look at the upcoming colorways reveals two rather interesting make-ups drawing inspiration from fellow Nike athlete Kobe Bryant and his signature line of sneakers. One version features the Zoom Koston One silhouette, but with a Kobe VI treatment, and the second features a complete Kobe VI upper with the skate-ready ZK1 outsole. Lunar cushioning is a first for Nike Skateboarding so carrying it over into the skate world via Eric Koston’s new signature shoe is about a generous introduction as you can imagine. Check out the rest of the Zoom Koston One Collection and let us know what you think of the Kobe VI x Zoom Koston One hybrid. via FnG.

Adding Eric Koston to the Nike SB team was like welcoming Dwyane Wade to Jordan Brand. Obviously the two pro athletes don’t equal when it comes to worldwide notoriety and fame, but in the Skate scene, Koston’s name is as big as any other and gave Nike SB an instant boost in star power and legitimacy. Here’s a detailed look at Koston’s upcoming Pro Model with Nike SB – the Nike SB Zoom Eric Koston One. A simple and basic-looking skate shoe at the outset, the Koston One actually contains quite a few important functional designs, like the LunarLon insole cushioning and the unique traction pattern that serves a dual purpose (grip and a tribute to Koston’s Thai heritage). More detailed images await you after the jump so take a peek and let us know what you think. via miszapas.

It was a bit of a surprise when Eric Koston announced in spring 2009 he was leaving Lakai, but skaters and sneakerheads alike immediately started to imagine what it’d be like if he hooked up with Nike SB.  He signed on a few months later and in the intervening 18 months we’ve seen two Koston x Nike SB Dunks but it’s taking a bit longer to get his signature model to retail.  The Nike SB Zoom Koston One will make a big splash when the initial colorways release this summer including a black/silver pair, one in blue and gold that mimics his SB Dunk Low ‘Thailand’ and a dope Sport Red edition with Tiffany Swooshes we saw teased last month as a Supreme collaboration.  Click through to see em all, look for the Zoom Koston One SB at select retailers like Kix-Files soon and stick with Sneaker News for the exact release date.
