As part of the release of Eric Koston’s first pro model with Nike SB, Nike is issuing a super limited edition Kobe Bryant take of his kicks. Only 24 pairs will be available and they go on sale bright and early tomorrow at the Nike Vault at LA’s Staples Center. Better get their early.
Here’s more from Nike:
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 (photos below). Only 24 pair will be available for purchase on May 21st at (THE NIKE VAULT at Staples Center 1111 South Figueroa St. Los Angeles, CA 91005).
