A few days back, we got our first sneak peek at a very intriguing edition of the upcoming Nike SB Zoom Koston One featuring the upper of the Kobe VI fixed atop the Koston midsole. Eric’s love for Kobe and the Lakers is well known, so for the introduction of his first signature model from Nike SB, a very special version of the shoe was created to bring the two superstar LA athletes together in shoe form. Unfortunately for most of us, news has just surfaced indicating that a mere 24 pairs of this crazy collab shoe will be available for purchase. The shoe will release tomorrow, May 21st at the Nike Vault in Los Angeles complete with a custom wooden humidor containing Nike Eric Koston golf balls and a luxurious suede shoe bag. Proceeds from the sales will go to charitable measures from Nike Better World and The Kobe Bryant Family Foundation to improve LA playgrounds. Check out some more pics and info after the jump and if you were planning on getting a pair, you’d better come up with a gameplan immediately!
