Eric Koston has consistently been one of the most brilliant skaters in the game for quite a while, so when news first broke that he was leaving his longtime shoe sponsor, Lakai, all sorts of speculation began to brew on what company he would wind up with. After being photographed in a pair of Big Gulp Nike Dunk SB’s a few months back, rumors of a possible Nike SB sponsorship began to circulate around the web. With all that idle chatter buzzing around already, Koston was recently caught on video skating with plastic bags over his shoes. People immediately began to wonder why his kicks were being kept such a secret, and now today, the official announcement came down that Eric will indeed be joining the Nike SB team.

The addition of Koston instantly adds even more superstar firepower to the brand and it’s safe to say that it’s only a matter of time now before an Eric Koston signature model is in the works. Upon joining the team, Eric had this to say:

“Not only am I psyched to be a part of the great group of guys that makes up the Nike SB team, but I’m equally as excited to work with them creatively. I’m sure many people know that a lot of different Nike’s have been the inspiration for my shoe designs over the last 12 years, so I feel like a fucking kid in a candy store when it comes to this partnership between Nike and I.”
