Nike SB | Koston x Heritage


The highly awaited Koston have finally arrived to Saskatoon. This shoe is a fusion between the Eric Koston One and the Air Max 90 that was designed by Tinker Hatfield. The colour way is known as Black/Volt (536058-003). If you don't already know, Koston is a sneaker head. He has been collecting SB's, Jordan's and Air Maxes for a long time now.

You can see the heavy influence of the AM90 from the rubber tabs, eyelets and stitching. The Koston is known for being a seamless skate shoe, so this is a big change (it may not stretch as much). I managed to try them on and not only does it look aesthetically different but feels different too, it almost feels like there is more ankle support. On the other hand, this model still takes advantage of the Lunarlon insole and will an identical board feel to the Koston.

As far as I know, these can only be found at Momentum Marketplace.

  1. After I retire from the fun of inline skates, I'll surely have this on my shopping cart for some big-boy skateboarding.

  2. I often purchase shoes like this one since I do a lot of extreme stuff such as skate along the curbs and of our neighborhood and actually compete in some small time tournaments. But when winter arrives, I do a lot of hockey, either on the streets or on the rink.
