If you caught our interview with Eric Koston and Nike Designer Shawn Carboy, you’d already know the cool story behind the Nike Koston 2 IT and how it required the collaboration between two seemingly unrelated sports. The shoe itself is a hybrid of two things, the Nike Koston 2 upper, and the outsole of the Nike Lunar Swingtip – a shoe that was inspired by Shawn’s design. The Nike Koston 2 IT – or Integrated Traction – features a unique leather upper that won’t stretch out and warp the original shape of the shoe, while the outsole is as golf-ready as you can get with the state-of-the-art outsole that provides ample support without the weight. Check out our exclusive photos below and keep an eye out for an official release on April 13th, although some retailers are dropping them as early as tomorrow.
