The unimaginable has occurred as skate meets golf with the unveiling of Eric Koston’s signature golf shoe, the Nike Koston 2 IT.
Legendary Nike SB pro Eric Koston is a golf fanatic. While this may come as a surprise to some, Koston sees little difference between these two seemingly distant worlds: both passions pair physical precision and mental stamina within an adapted setting. Golf great Tiger Woods even made a cameo in Koston’s recent Nike Koston 2 commercial.
Koston’s fascination for the fairway continues with a new limited footwear release: the Nike Koston 2 IT. The streamlined shoe features an adapted Koston 2 upper in sleek black leather and incorporates Nike Golf’s groundbreaking “Integrated Traction” technology with Nike SB’s world-class Swingtip outsole. Lightweight and comfortable, the Nike Koston 2 IT maps out foot pressure via Lunarlon inserts and adjusts the flexible spikes accordingly to provide traction, relieving the wearer from having to walk around on hard spikes at all times.
Screaming onto the course in Tiger-inspired Sunday Red, is the Nike Koston 2 Spike/ The modified Koston 2 upper from the athlete’s latest Nike SB signature shoe is placed atop a tour-level Lunar Control golf spike outsole. Created specially for Koston, the shoe boasts waterproof construction and features an embossed snakeskin outer and liner.
The Koston 2 IT is available now in very limited quantities at select Nike SB retailers and specialty Nike Golf dealers. The Koston 2 Spike is not available commercially.
