If you went back to the days of Caddyshack, there wasn’t a tremendous overlap between golf and skateboarding.  We’ve come a long way in both sports and culturally in general, which means considerably more give and take between these previously disparate sporting worlds.  Eric Koston is a fine example, an extremely successful skater who, similar to the ultimate Nike signature athlete in Michael Jordan, finds that his competitive drive translates perfectly to the links.  The Nike Koston 2 IT reminds us how much both of these activities depend on traction, the IT swapping out a carefully articulated herringbone starburst for a grass-grabbing nubby bottom.  The black leather colorway with subtle red accents is a winner anywhere you’d like to wear it, and you’ll find the Nike Golf co-signed Koston 2 IT available at select SB shops like Premier.

Despite not being up for grabs at retail for very long, the Nike Koston 2 is already getting a remix model of sorts. Shown here is that sneaker, the Nike Koston 2 IT, which gets a bunch of design cues from Eric Koston’s love of the game of golf. Interestingly enough the sneakers even go so far as to slap the “Nike Golf” logo onto the insoles. See a full set of angles on the Nike Koston 2 IT (Integrated Traction), which was supposed to hit Nikestore today, right after the jump and pick up a pair from Caliroots now.

If you caught our interview with Eric Koston and Nike Designer Shawn Carboy, you’d already know the cool story behind the Nike Koston 2 IT and how it required the collaboration between two seemingly unrelated sports. The shoe itself is a hybrid of two things, the Nike Koston 2 upper, and the outsole of the Nike Lunar Swingtip – a shoe that was inspired by Shawn’s design. The Nike Koston 2 IT – or Integrated Traction – features a unique leather upper that won’t stretch out and warp the original shape of the shoe, while the outsole is as golf-ready as you can get with the state-of-the-art outsole that provides ample support without the weight. Check out our exclusive photos below and keep an eye out for an official release on April 13th, although some retailers are dropping them as early as tomorrow.

Nike Koston 2 – Five Key Points For “Complete Control”

nike koston 2 five key details Nike Koston 2   Five Key Points For Complete Control

It’s hard to believe that there was room for improvement in the Nike Koston One, but leave it to Nike – the perpetually dissatisfied – to push the envelope. The Koston One was a hit for skate and street, but Eric Koston and Shawn Carboy of Nike SB believed that it could have been even better. This great anatomical display of the Nike Koston 2 detailed the five key points that allows the user to achieve “Complete Control” in the Koston 2, with the major focuses being on the firmer LunarLon cushioning, more durable materials, and breathable mesh borrowed from the LunarGlide series. More details below, so take  a look and get your feet in the Nike Koston 2 right now on Nikestore.

Part of the Nike Skateboarding Eric Koston 2 Media Launch Experience included an extended sit-down with the man of the hour, Eric Koston, and the designer behind the sequel, Shawn Carboy. Both were ready and waiting to fill us in on the journey from Koston One to Koston 2, but this time around, we prepared a broad range of questions that didn’t focus entirely on the shoe – mainly because we already talked about the design of the shoe back in October of 2012. So what could there be to talk about? There’s some interesting info spilled by Koston and Carboy, so read on below.

Last October, Sneaker News was invited to an exclusive event by Nike Skateboarding for the unveiling of the Nike Koston 2 paired with a keen exploration of the skate culture of New York City. Fast forward to late March and switch time zones to the Left Coast and we were once again to experience an incredible two-day extravaganza out in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of Eric Koston’s second shoe and the latest installment in an unending string of impeccable Nike adverts – this one called “The Legend Grows”. As usual, Nike came correct with presentation and festivity as we participated in exclusive interviews with Koston and Nike designer Shawn Carboy and ended the experience with a big bash at Nike Skateboarding at Sixth & Mill.

Nike Eric Koston 2 – Black – Metallic Gold

We are now firmly in the era of the Nike Eric Koston 2, and already in about a week we’ve seen three colorways arrive on store shelves.  The Digital Pink Quickstrike started things out with a bang last Friday and the April Wolf Grey drop hit a bit early, and now they’re joined by a third in black suede with Metallic Gold accents.  This colorway in particular is interesting because there was never a similar style on the Koston One despite how well it translates to the series natural two-toned arrangement (but there are black/gold fake 1s out there, so if you like this new drop, don’t try and grab the prequel).  Have a closer look, let us know what you think of Nike SB’s second Eric Koston signature model and grab yours today from Flatspot.
