As we creep ever closer to the Koston sequel’s official release, we continue rolling out previews of the the debut GRs. Following up the already-seen black/digital pink and wolf grey/gum medium brown colorways — and the limited “Easter” pair, for that matter — today we look ahead to the Nike SB Eric Koston 2 Black/Metallic Gold.
Black suede comprises the overhauled (compared to the Koston 1) upper, with tonal mesh inset at the heel and on the tongue to enhance breathability. Contrast comes by way of the gold Swoosh and white sole unit, the latter also reworked for performance (increased traction and feel) purposes. For superlative cushioning, a drop-in Lunarlon insole is housed in the shoe.
