Following Nike SB’s release of the divisive Koston 3 silhouette, we got the opportunity to examine the sneaker in greater detail. Inspired by Nike’s Kobe basketball sneakers and the Mercurial indoor soccer boots, the shoe’s upper utilizes a seamless construction, fusing together suede panelling at the forefoot, lace stays and heel with mesh quarter panels, while midfoot Flywire lacing and a distinctive ankle-fit Flyknit collar ensure ample lockdown. A drop-in Lunarlon sockliner with built-in Nike Zoom Air unit protects against hard impacts, while a thin-web rubber outsole provides superior grip on the skate deck. Buy a pair for $150 USD online and at select Nike SB accounts worldwide.
