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.
