After debuting with an ultra-limited release that catered to the skaters, basketball fans and raised a ton of money for charity all at once, the SB Eric Koston 1 x Kobe Bryant is now set for a wide-release with some slight changes. Unlike the only 24 pairs released at the Nike Vault in Los Angeles, the general release edition of the Kobe x Koston 1 rocks a skate-ready nubuck upper, replacing the unique Zoom Kobe VI build we previously saw.
The colorway remains the same with black working the nubuck base, white taking care of the Swoosh, and del sol and purple accenting throughout for the clean LA look. The general release edition of the SB Kobe x Koston 1 collaboration is set for release mext month at select Nike SB retailers.
