Eric Koston proved upon the very launch of his first Nike SB signature sneaker that it could blend seamlessly with cutting edge basketball designs, and being the devoted sneakerhead that he is, Koston simply couldn’t stop there. For his latest project, Swoosh skateboarding’s mad scientist reached back into the vaults for a model that debuted a few years before he turned pro, which feels like a lifetime given how many of our readers weren’t even born then. The Nike SB Koston 1 x Air Max 90 offers a re-written trip back through history as we see the beloved ‘Infrared’ motif redone with added emphasis on suede for skating purposes. The entire shoe is still under wraps, but after seeing the custom branding on the heel and lateral badges, we’re starting to get the sense of this as a unique and lovingly crafted project.
