The other day we already gave you a decent look at the upcoming Nike SB Eric Koston X Heritage, a skate show inspired by the iconic Nike Air Max 90. Today we can preview yet another colorway of the sneaker and give you some more background on the design.
“Drawing from two of Nike’s all-time favorite models, the Koston X Heritage is a unique hybrid of the Eric Koston 1 crossbred with one of Frost’s personal favorite running shoes, the equally legendary Nike Air Max 90. A blockbuster union if there ever was one, but don’t get it twisted: this ain’t no potato head job quickly slapped together by some footwear Frankenstein, but a full overhaul personally supervised by Koston himself in his typical hands-on approach to make sure the details came out just right.
The obvious thing that jumps out with the Koston X Heritage is the incorporation of the rubber back and heel details, but there’s a whole lot more going on here. In addition to its full-length Lunarlon insole, the Koston 1 provides the perfect blank slate for the enforced collar and wavy seamwork that are classic staples of the Air Max 90 design. While the Koston X Heritage represents a clever and curious experimentation, it remains first and foremost a high-performance skate shoe. Koston wouldn’t have it any other way.”
The colorways of the Nike SB Koston X Heritage will be hitting retailers this season and a third colorway will come next season. We will keep you posted about the launch.
