If you have some spending money left over after fireworks purchases, now might be a good time to get yourself or someone else some Eric Koston x Oakley EK Collection sunglasses. News of this release dropped in late June and as of five days ago the EK Collection became available at Oakley.com and select retailers. There are three editions and each with limited production numbers.
Here is Koston's Bio at Oakley, which features a video put together by Vice and Oakley in early June to promote the EK Collection. The video is pretty much a non-event with regards to skateboarding. There is also an Eric Koston Epicly Later’d trailer, where at one point Koston is compared to the "Tiger Woods" of skateboarding. This is the same trailer on Koston's Oakley bio page.
