Ha, announced a couple days ago Nike athletes Erick Koston and Kobe Bryant collaborate on Koston’s first signature shoe the Eric Koston 1. It’s interesting, that’s all I can say.
“In celebration of Eric Koston’s first signature shoe with NIKE Skateboarding, 5 time NBA World Champion Kobe Bryant and Street Skateboarding Innovator Eric Koston have bridged two LA schoolyard sports — basketball and skateboarding. It is undeniable that both basketball and skateboarding have many parallels. Kobe and Eric have given you the best of both worlds and developed a shoe that will look good on the board or in the paint.
The Kobe x Koston is a disruptive yet stylish combination of the Kobe VI upper and Eric Koston’s game changing lo ride cupsole construction with LUNARLON technology. Each pair comes with a custom humidor including signature Nike Eric Koston golf balls and a suede shoe bag”.
