The Nike SB category may not be the unstoppable juggernaut of collectible kicks it once was, but there are still plenty of worthy efforts coming forth to keep the fire burning. All these years since Nike Skateboarding exploded onto the scene, their marquee model, the Dunk, is still going strong and delighting its devotees with a wide variety of intriguing new versions. Combined with their signature models and promising new entries into the arsenal like the recently introduced Free sole skate shoe, SB still has the skate game well-covered on both the performance and style ends.
Nike SB Koston 3 Hyperfeel
There aren’t many grounds on which to compare skateboarding with football. Although games of kickabout are played in school yards and back streets by young kids around the world without the burden of expensive equipment, and much the same can be said about pickup sessions at the local skate park, football – the world’s most popular sport – is far less insular and more universal than skateboarding.
But for this latest release, Eric Koston and the Nike SB team have managed to draw from both worlds, creating something that is cohesive in its stylish functionality.
The Nike Hyperfeel Koston 3 is aimed at keeping wearers on top of their game, starting with a key part of any skate session; the warm-up. The latest in Eric Koston’s line of signature Nike SB sneakers borrows from Nike Football, more specifically the Magista’s specially designed ankle collar.
Nike SB and pro-rider Eric Koston release the ‘Hyperfeel Koston 3’, their third collaborative signature model and a huge step forward in tech footwear.
Eric Koston is a total sneaker-head and he has been for over twenty years. It is little surprise that he has worked with Nike on drawing inspiration from technical aspects of all their footwear lines – from Football to Running – it’s a big time technical hybrid. The Koston 3 utilises Nike Hyperfeel technology, the shoe is constructed in a sock-like fit to act like an natural extension of your foot. The Dynamic Fit collar wraps around your ankle and the Lunarlon sockliner (with a Zoom Air unit in the heel) gives superb impact protection.
