From the ground up

Today Nike SB has announced the official collaboration between Eric Koston and Kobe Bryant on the first signature pro-model to come from Nike SB for Koston – the Eric Koston 1.

“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.

Only 24 pairs of the sneaker will be released on May 21st at

THE NIKE VAULT at Staples Center
1111 South Figueroa St.
Los Angeles, CA 91005
