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.
In this recap of the Nike Skateboarding Eric Koston 2 Media Launch Experience, we’re going to give you the best step-by-step walkthrough of Wednesday, March 27th and Thursday, March 28th. Of course, a few visuals are missing, but you’ll get the best idea of what Nike SB had planned out for the select group of media that was gathered in LA. Later, we’ll give you a nice interview that we had with Eric and Shawn that talks more about Nike SB and the sport as a whole, but if you want something a bit more focused on the shoes, check out our interview with the two from last October. If you’re ready, click below and enjoy!
The Nike Koston 2 is available now on Nikestore and skateshops worldwide.
