The Nike SB Zoom Eric Koston skate shoes are a collaboration with Denmark's premier skate outfitter, Soulland, inspired by the Danish word for "free." The nubuck leather upper is dyed a deep blue in tribute to Copenhagen's famous evening skies, and celebrates the freedom of Friday nights in cities around the world.Koston designed his shoes with comfort and board control at the forefront. The Lunarlon sockliner comes with a built-in Zoom Air unit for enhanced cushioning and impact protection. The result is a shoe with enough comfort for all-day sessions, yet still responsive enough for technical skating. The rubber outsole features a custom tread pattern designed by Koston himself for lasting grip on any surface.
