i called it out a long time ago. i dont know what to say. i guess its not too bad seeing as how stefan, brian anderson, and etc are on the team...Pretty good team indeed. just Koston ones nike promodels will be wierd if itcomes out
I like Koston, but he's just gonna make to much hype when his kicks come out. He can come out with the ugliest dunks ever and kids will be like DAMN THAT ISH IS HOT! MUST PICK UP!!! shiet....make those toxic avengers his shoe and people will go from "yuck, this aint shit" to "oh fuck! this is this shit!"
No one that really skates is dumb enough to wait in line for shoes. So your saying skateboarding is for "faggots" but waiting in line for shoes, making sure all your clothing matches, which by the way only impresses other dudes is for tough guys?
PROD is not liking this shit at all. Omars shoe is being bumped even later cause of this...so hes pissed. Theyre are paying Koston a shit load of dough so there are budget cuts...including no lace bags, soon no second lace, No stuffed tongues and the complete scrapping of the blazer. Wack fukin move Koston, great job Nike for ruining skateboarding.
am i the only one that read rep knowledge’s comment. fuck that. nike sb is gonna downgrade, and get crappier than they are already getting, that sucks, Koston is killing Nike SB"
just because one person says it dont mean shit but if a couple people say it more of a chance obviously you look into shit like this before you believe it nike is making a fucking killing recently and i doubt theyd ever do what they he wrote in that comment you replied to
Sweet, this will get more of the sbheads out of the way and give skaters a functional shoe that doesn't cost a trillion dollars. Of course, knowing SB, it will cost more than it's worth, but at least it will be skateable and won't garner too much hype. And Koston knows his shoes, so I'm hoping for something along the lines of P-rod 1 awesomeness. I'm psyched on this news!
sorry HARDEST OUT, but Nike is NOT making a killing. they've laid off how many thousands of employees as of late??? nike is going downhill really fast, and it's showing in the quality of the SB line. look at all the cosmetic changes made to the dunk. not to mention, look at how much shit hole product they're pumping out of their niketown stores. most of is is dogshit horrible. signing K is an attempt to boost sales, period. and it isn't going to work.
nike has been shit because all you fucking hypebeast keep buying the shoes and you don't even skate them. skateboarders don't care what the shoes will look like because they're going to get fucked up when they skate them.
Ok it's Nike money is not a fucking problem and oldschoolsbhead just fuckin jump off a bridge you type like a fifth grader on aim that has parental controls and can't swear and just learned about caps lock you gooch gobbling fuck
ok. what people need to understand.
Nike is a multi million / billion dollar company.
there not downgrading there stuff. there just taking stuff out that really isnt needed (who really needs lace bags? )
and they didnt stop stuffing there tongues. only the samples that we see pictures of have them thin. and then when they are released. there stuffed.
and Koston is getting up there in age. so he prob just wants to go out with a bang. i mean. he is a shoe head. and nike pays a damn good amount of cash. so why not?
and look how much they payed people like tiger woods. they where paying him more than what all the SB team makes all together.
but anyways. Koston is in depth with what comes out with his name on it. so i have a feeling his SB's will be the most comfy ones to ever be released.
koston really shouldnt be on sb.
hes just gonna want his own shoe, its gonna be so gay because stefan and p rod pretty much had to wait a long ass time to get their own shoe, and koston is just gonna step on the team and want his own shoe right away.
Koston has always been a big Nike Head. I dont know if any of you knew that but he does like Nike a lot obviously and he collects them too. Just another big carreer move for him. I bet he's stoked. Im sure his pro model will be some sort of blazer knock off.
And new2sbs awesome comment this white boys obviously me and way to just sit there and try and make sb fag friends your obviously that kid that sits in the back of class and agrees with whatever the cool kids say to fit in and make comments like " who's this guy" and " talk about ignorant" cause your to much of a pussy to make a bold
Koston wont get his own shoe, but he will definitely come out with some sick custom stuff. On to the tongues, yea theyre still stuffed but barely, nowhere like they were before so the recent releases do give that thin tongue look. I dont give a crap what a bunch of color "matching" kids think i dont care is SB's are "dead" better for me that means cheaper skate shoes.
first of i bet that mark kid either sucks at skating, doesnt skate or just is some asian who collects nikes, no pro as good or known as koston would go from having like 3 pro models to no pro models, most likely when he signed with nike it was in the agreement that he will get his own shoe sometime in the near future
stoked to see koston on nike... the koston one from es' was probably my favorite shoe to skate of all time... and as for there not being a k1 sb.. i highly doubt it!! you dont sign a person like koston and not give him a pro model.. cant wait to see nike put a new twist on a classic shoe! you know its gonna be dope!
This Eric Koston guy sure moves around a lot, first it was Es, then Lakai, now Nike? Sure he was at Es (aka Sole Industries) for ten years, but he couldn't have been at Lakai for more then a year or two. Surely they would sign a contract for longer then that? He must have a lawyer on speed dial?
Lakai just put out a new E.K model, and now the company (and anyone else that carried them) is stuck with obsolete stock that they will have to liquidate. That's a pretty big financial hit for everyone involved. If I were running a skate shop I wouldn't carry anything to do with this guy, I wouldn't take the chance.
Anyhow, with regards to Nike, I like the products but hate the company. They had nothing to do with, and did nothing for, skateboarding or snowboarding until they decided that they could make money from them. They have also made a bad name for themselves over the years with some of their business practices, including with a skater run company in Oregon.
Fortunately they got exactly what they deserved on the snowboard side, their overtures into that sport all but fizzled, the riders stuck with rider owned companies.
