Rad Collector - Koston on SB Pro Reactions
The Skateboard Mag sent Animal Chan’s LurkerVision to the Debacle premier to ask a bunch of pros what they thought about Eric Koston signing to Nike SB. Check out Danny Supa, Daryl Angel, Reese Forbes, Lance Mountain, Omar Salazar, Theotis Beasley, Rodrigo Petersen, Ray Maldonado, Lewis Marnell, Justin Brock and more as they drop what amount to be not the most scintillating reactions to Koston joining the team. Kinda seems like they all knew already. Hmmm. The best part is Dan Murphy bringing it back for the ams. Watch the whole video here. Via Skate Daily.

Rad Collector - Koston on SB
After much speculation, it doesn’t come as a huge surprise that Eric Koston has signed with Nike SB. Its going to be fun to watch the message boards light up about this! Here what he had to say about it.

“Not only am I psyched to be a part of the great group of guys that makes up the Nike SB team, but I’m equally as excited to work with them creatively. I’m sure many people know that a lot of different Nike’s have been the inspiration for my shoe designs over the last 12 years, so I feel like a fucking kid in a candy store when it comes to this partnership between Nike and I.”

One thing is for sure, he’s gonna get a hell of a pro model.

Rad Collector - Lakai Final Kostons
In what is starting to seem like illuminati machinations, Lakai has chosen to show us all the final Koston 1 which was to be released for Fall but now will never be, except in the hands of some clearly Masonic Lakai bigwigs. How they gonna do us like that? Word is, Obama may join the cause to get these things made, he especially likes the purps. Black and red after the jump. via CtotheJL.

Jenkins’ previous Product (RED) collabo was a set of two decks with Eric Koston in 2007. Again, both boards combine to complete the Girl logo inside the (RED) embrace. With every board sold, Girl gives a majority of its profits to the Global Fund. Support by buying one or both now at the Product (RED) site. Take a look at the Koston decks after the jump.

Koston off Lakai

14 April 2009, 15.48 | Posted in Shoes, Skateboarding, Sneakers, team | No comments »

Eric Koston leaves Lakai? Well, rumors are spread and this funny press conference video by Lakai might be a late April Fool’s… but it’s not as the Lakai page states. So far, there’s no information on where Eric is heading. Possibly he’s joining his Berrics-buddy Steve Berra on DVS, possibly he’s not and starting his own company. But one thing is for sure – Koston won’t be sponsorless for more than a few days. We’ll keep you updated.
