Nike SB Eric Koston Huarache Shoes
Unique issue of Eric Koston's shoe which features a marbled Huarache strap, with luxurious cool grey pig skin suede upper.
Two tones of rubber have been mixed in the production of the huarache, giving the pattern of marbled stone. This is majority white with a subtle grey swirl. This is matched by velvet to the touch pig skin suede, in cool grey. Giving the whole shoe an opulent feel. Ventilating and foot holding mesh is in black while sole is white side walled with gum signature Koston grip.
Koston's Huarache has been developed by the iconic skater with strength, durability and hold of the foot in mind. Materials are hard wearing as is the cupsole. Huarache strap and integral mesh booty really fit it to the foot.
Where by most other meshes used in this context from SB are a solid mesh, that used in the Koston is different. On closure inspection a wide holed rubber trellis has been sandwiched between two mesh layers. It has more spring to it, keeping it around the foot. At the same time having a more open structure adding greater ventilation.
A huge archive of influences are evident here in Eric's signature designed shoe. Demonstrating the depth of his love for Nike's heritage and history. Eric Koston is a noted sneaker head...as well as one of the greatest skaters of all time.
